We had coffee and biscuits in the albergue and were walking by 6am. It was probably ~37 degrees, crisp and clear. We walked mostly on a gravel or dirt track and away from farmlands the 12km to Caceres where we had a nice “second breakfast near the medieval section of the city. It’s a UNESCO heritage site dating back ~500 years. We passed through the old city then onwards on the camino route. After we left the city we walked on the shoulder of the highway for 3 or 4 kilometers, probably missed the correct route as no one else seemed to be walking this way. We then walked parallel to the highway on a nice track the rest of the way to Casar de Caceres where we checked into the municipal albergue - only 5 euros per night and not too bad. We had a late and big lunch so decided to skip dinner.
