Stage 16 - September 16: Ponferrada - Zamora, 186.4km

The 186.4-kilometre stage starts out with the category three Alto del Acebo. After that the rest of the stage is mostly downhill. The wind off the coast will benefit formations of echelons.

Sixth time finishing town Zamora is not far from Portugal. With 24 Romanesque churches of the 12th and 13th centuries it has been called a "museum of Romanesque art." The flat run-in will favour a bunch sprint.
