A small hamlet on the way up to O’Cebreiro, there is little more than a collection of houses, a parochial albergue (run by a German confraternity) and the adjacent church which has a daily evening Mass. Two other bars are in the center of the village, one distinctly Gallego in feel and the other distinctly not. The latter also functions as a small albergue.

History: 

Sir John Moore’s very unlucky British army, having been run out of Villafranca by the French, and suffering terrible weather, retreated through these hills on his way to A Coruña. Moore would make it to the port but never escaped the peninsula. He is buried there.

July 2019 Other albergue not mentioned on this map is available- el ultimo rincon. I had a lovely time there with the ac and terrace, but my friend got eaten alive by bedbugs.
