We left Monesterio following the N-630 trace, which we left on the left by the football field. Higueras, olive trees and the course of the Dehesa stream will accompany our walk. Three kilometers from the beginning we cross the stream through a concrete walkway (Km 3.1) and follow our path surrounded by oak trees and escorted by two stone walls. Neither the environment nor the situation vary too much and we reach the road between Calera de León and Montemolín (Km 5.7). We crossed her and went straight to an area known as the Hospital's Chaparral.
In the next few kilometres, the dehesa, with hardly any transition, will be given over to a vast plain of crops. After the tenth kilometer of the stage, from the place known as El Cerrillo, we already appreciate Fuente de Cantos. An optical effect, in this almost infinite plain, is going to play with us for the next few hours. Unbelievably, there are still 11 kilometers to the home town of the painter Francisco de Zurbarán (Km 10.7).
We continue on a gentle descent for more than a kilometer to turn north-east looking for the stream Bodion, which we cross (Km 13,3). From this point, the lowest of the day at 550 meters of altitude, we started climbing to 620 meters and reached a place known as Dehesa del Campo. In a slight descent, again, we arrive next to the Villa Camino de Santiago, decorated with several ceramics that mark the kilometers made from Seville and the ones that are still missing to Santiago de Compostela (Km 17.4).
During the last four kilometers we are approaching the N-630, which advances right, and we enter Fuente de Cantos crossing the road EX-202.
