O Cebreiro has grown from a small and ancient village of dairy farmers into a small and ancient village of large scale tourism. With luck you will arrive in a shroud of fog and leave with an abundance of sunshine; both suit this village well.

History: 

It has played an important role throughout the history of the camino. It was the parish priest, Father Elías Valiña Sampedro, who is most responsible for the resurgence of the camino. It was he that first painted the yellow arrows, and the tales that surrounded him doing so are the stuff...

Fiesta: 

Santa María and the Holy Miracle are celebrated on the 8th and 9th of September.

The Road: 

From the top, it is mostly downhill, though there remain a few brief climbs, all of the way to Triacastela.

Liñares lacks the charm of O Cebreiro but offers the distinct advantage of having a new albergue. The municipal albergue in O Cebreiro has a tendency to become very crowded.

Congratulate yourself on a job well done, the pass into Galicia has been overcome and from here on out the mountains soften in severity. 

Triacastela is full of choices: where to eat, where to shop, where to sleep, and even how to leave town.

It is difficult to separate Samos from the monastery that dominates this small village. The monastery albergue here is reminiscent of the old albergue in Roncesvalles; one long vaulted space full of hobbling pilgrims, snoring, and laughter. I cannot recommend the experience enough...

The Road: 

Pass Foxos, and in Teiguín the camino splits again.

It is possible to stay on the road all the way to Sarria, but the connection to Aguiada is recommended. Along the road to Sarria is 8.8km, via Aguiada 12.6km

Sarria now holds the record for the most albergues in one town. Don’t be alarmed by the swell of pilgrims that appear overnight once you reach this point; the closest city to the minimum 100km point set by the church to be eligible to receive the Compostela Certificate. The effect...

History: 

Archeological digs in the area around Sarria have revealed the presence of a considerable pre-Roman settlement. Documentation supporting more recent inhabitations, on the other hand, is hard to come by, and the earliest written records don’t appear until the 6th century.

Whatever existed...

Notice: 

Along the way between Sarria and Portomarin it is common to find beggars and buskers and the occasional scam artist soliciting your support and money and signature. Do your best to avoid becoming ensnared, the best method is to keep on walking.  Also, you are advised to get your...

The Road: 

The camino exits town along the Rúa Maior in the old town and passes the Convento de la Magdalena. Take note that the camino actually turns left BEFORE arriving at the convent. It goes steeply downhill to the road, turns right, and soon crosses the río Celeiro on the ...
