Be advised that there have been a growing number of false arrows in Paradanova. Some of them are the official looking blue and yellow plastic (most are painted arrows) signs.

These arrows are intended to detour you from Fonsagrada and towards A Proba de Burón and should be ignored....

The camino between Padrón and O Cádavo is arguably the most difficult of the route, and possibly the reason for the nickname "Rompe Piernas". Allow for extra time, especially after a rain since many of the sections become thick with mud.

The bar and albergue are both in the town of Pradela, which sits just off the camino before it descends towards Trabadelo. You do not need to go into town unless you are after a drink or a bed. Otherwise follow the arrows to keep along the camino. The forests here are thick with chestnut trees...
