A sleepy hamlet with a new bar for pilgrims.

The Road: 

The camino follows the road out of Pielas, downhill to Oseira.

2.00km → Vilarello
Altitude: 
660
History: 

Oseira is hard to miss for the looming and massive Monasterio de Santa María de Oseira. It is well worth a visit. Built in the 12th century it was originally a Cistercian order of French monks. They stayed a surprisingly long time but like nearly every other religious order they...

The Road: 

The way out of Oseira is not along the road (though cyclists may prefer it for the more gentle grade) but rather up a steep track adjacent to the road with the restaurants.

It passes the hamlets of Vilarello (2km), O Outeiro (2.5k), Carballediña (1.5km), and...

The albergue is located next to the municipal pool, on the west (left) side of the main road. If you plan to stay there, ignore the arrows which take you to the right along a byway (nothing more than a way to keep you off of the N-525). Keep to the left side of the road.

The Road: 

From Castro-Dozón the camino resumes its on-again-off-again dance with the N-525. It does so for about 4.5km. From there it veers left off of the N-525 and descends passing the hamlets of Puxallos (1.5km) and Pontenouf (2.3km). From there it climbs back up to the motorway,...

The bar is located along the main road, on the camino out of A Laxe. They do meals and are the only place in town. The Camino de Invierno passes through nearby Lalín and it is likely that you will see a small increase in the number of pilgrims between here and Santiago.

The Road: 

The camino is along the road for a short stretch but soon turns left to take a shorter path to the town of Prado (bar, pharmacy) (1.9km). Between here and Santiago the camino passes almost entirely through farmland with very little to distinguish between the numerous places. After ...
