Zamora will continue to be the protagonist during stage 11. The peloton will start riding from the small Castilian locality of Mombuey, famous for its Church of Our Lady of the Assumption. This temple, built during the 13th century, is crowned by a solitary tower, whose construction is attributed to Templars, which will watch over the riders as they pass on the way to Galician territory.
If there is a place to see, to feel the passing of time, to listen to the silence, to smell the purest nature and to savour life, that place is the Ribeira Sacra. Between the Sil and Miño river canyons is Luintra, one of the most beautiful landscape discoveries in La Vuelta's recent history. Following Simon Yates's victory in 2016, the Orense locality will, once again, be a privileged and decisive setting for one of this edition's stages.
