Stage 3 - Ciudad Rodrigo-Barco de Ávila, 87 mi/ 8431 ft.
We head towards the Sierra de Francia hilltop monastery (1710 mts) through a climb that reminds us of Mt. Ventoux. Then we descend and see beautiful towns on the area such as La Alberca, Miranda del Castañar and head for Bejar.
With the Sierra de Bejar as witness, we climb the last hill of the day, La Hoya (1250 mts) before descending to the heart of Gredos in the town of Barco de Avila.
