Description -

Leave Barcia via the neighbourhood of La Luz and head towards Fondón de la Magdalena and then uphill through Mingón to Barcellina. The route then links up with the road to El Faro, continuing on through Villar and Torrealtina to Luarca. Leave the town along La Peña Street to then reach El Chano. Heading southwest towards El Oteiro, head towards La Olla Stream and Taborcías, crossing the bridge over the railway line to pass through La Caleya before reaching Villuir. Continue along the N-634 and then turn onto a path to Pico Quemado, passing through Cabornas, La Pedrera, La Casona, Rellón and Los Remedios. The route then heads uphill to Sagurniento Pass, crosses the road to Boronas and continues uphill to Las Hervedosas. It then heads westward through Bao and Barayo until reaching Villainclán. From there, if you choose NOT to continue on to Villapedre, you pass through the hamlet of La Peña and head downhill to the River Frexulfe, which you ford before heading uphill once more to Salvador de Piñera, where there is a hostel for those who wish to divide the stage in two.
