All the services you could want in this town. “La Gran Tortuga” is a hostel at number 34 of the main road. Wifi is included, and it was a clean if aged room.

NOTE: The new albergue of Xagoaza is not actually in O Barco, but rather 3.5km out of town to the North. If you wish to...

Although the OU-0801 road will take you all the way to O Barco, there are arrows which take you onto much more scenic trails through the forest. Eventually, you will find yourself back on the road. Keep an eye out for a blue camino sign indicating the way to your left and under the train tracks...

Sobradelo is built on a fairly steep hill. The arrows into town left me choosing to go to the left, downhill into the town. There you will find an ice cream kiosk, pharmacies, a shop, the train station, and banks. More restaurants are located on the other side

The bridge over the river which you crossed to get to Quereño marks your arrival in Galicia.This is a curious town full of people who mean well but do not likely know the land outside of town. You enter town after passing over a bridge and under the train

The Road: 

From Quereño, you have two choices: Sobradelo along the river, or a longer detour which takes you through Rubia. I walked back and forth through town talking to the same cast of characters numerous times before being tracked down by a young man on a bike whose grandfather knew the way to...

This route was the actual Camino route until a couple of years ago, before the riverside route was marked. Take it only if you plan to spend the night at the very highly recommended albergue in Xagoaza. I am not sure if the route is still marked through the town of O Barco, but it is easy to get...
