Be sure to turn right if you got here along the camino through the woods. If you missed that part and stayed on the road, turn left and head into town a very short distance to the bar. The bar here is open every day and provides excellent service to pilgrims. There is WiFi there and nice, clean...
The camino leaves town along the road. If you stopped at the bar, take the steps down and behind it and turn right then left on the road. You will follow that road all the way to Cornado.
The bar and albergue are one and the same. To get there turn left at the ‘rollo’. Otherwise, continue to the right past a small picnic area.
You will walk along the road here for a short but potentially dangerous stretch. Pay close attention to traffic when crossing.
Just a few buildings along the roadside, but with a pair of bars.
The camino leaves the road quickly and follows along smaller country lanes all the way to Ponte Olveiroa. It is a particularly scenic stretch which passes first through the villages of Bo Xesus and A Gueima.
The local pool is free for pilgrims. There is now signage to take you along this optional detour, and it rejoins the official camino in Ponte Olveira.
In 2018 a bar and an albergue opened their doors to pilgrims, allowing pilgrims to divide the route into four days of walking no more than 26km a day with a short last day..
The only bar and albergue in Ponte Olveira are now to be found BEFORE crossing the river. The one on the other side has closed.
Again along the road all the way to Olveiroa.
Lots and lots of hórreos and three bar/restaurants.
The camino cuts a straight line through town but NOTE: at the edge of town the camino turns left BEFORE ever getting to the road. This is an easy turn to miss.
It is mostly uphill from here all the way to Hospital and beyond, leveling out only a bit when you get to ...
The albergue in Hospital is a bit diffucult to get to, and there are not too many signs to show the way. To get there turn right onto the main road and follow it downhill, turning left into the hamlet at the first opportunity. The albergue is at the bottom part of the village, on the last road...
