O Cebreiro has grown from a small and ancient village of dairy farmers into a small and ancient village of large scale tourism. With luck you will arrive in a shroud of fog and leave with an abundance of sunshine; both suit this village well.

History: 

It has played an important role throughout the history of the camino. It was the parish priest, Father Elías Valiña Sampedro, who is most responsible for the resurgence of the camino. It was he that first painted the yellow arrows, and the tales that surrounded him doing so are the stuff of...

The Road: 

From the top, it is mostly downhill, though there remain a few brief climbs, all of the way to Triacastela.

Liñares lacks the charm of O Cebreiro but offers the distinct advantage of having a new albergue. The municipal albergue in O Cebreiro has a tendency to become very crowded.

Small shop inside the albergue. The village is quite small, only 40 people. Three of the families make their living producing Queixo de Cebreiro, which can be sampled at the bar in the albergue.

Congratulate yourself on a job well done, the pass into Galicia has been overcome and from here on out the mountains soften in severity.

Triacastela is full of choices: where to eat, where to shop, where to sleep, and even how to leave town.

It is difficult to separate Samos from the monastery that dominates this small village. The monastery albergue here is reminiscent of the old albergue in Roncesvalles; one long vaulted space full of hobbling pilgrims, snoring, and laughter. I cannot recommend the experience enough.
