One very nice bar owned by Marcos and his wife. It is up the road on the right-hand side, and it is the only place to get a drink or bite to eat. There is, in fact, nothing on the other side of the bridge except the start of a climb. You have entered the Ribeira Sacra region now, with its steeply terraced vineyards. The cobbled path you descended to arrive here dates back to roman times. The bridge crossed the Rio Miño, which runs north towards Portomarin on the Camino Frances and south towards Portugal. It is rich with history, has it’s own micro-climate which keeps the surrounding hills from freezing, and if you can manage to take one of the evening boat tours from Belasar (particularly the smaller yellow boat) you can get a chance to see a part of the camino not often seen by pilgrims.

Leave Belasar by crossing the bridge and begin your zig zag ascent to Chantada.
