Camponaraya is located in the middle of the stage of the Camino Frances that starts in Ponferrada and ends in Villafranca del Bierzo, just 6 km after Ponferrada. That is why apart from being a place of passage and supply, it is also an ideal point for pilgrims who want to make shorter journeys or variations of the original route.
The town of Camponaraya lies upon the river Naraya. Walking through these lands covered with vineyards in this stage reminds the pilgrims that they are in a land of wines. After leaving Camponaraya, we also have the possibility to buy and taste it at Cooperativa Vinas del Bierzo.
