1.10km → Balugães → 4.40km → Lugar do Corgo
To Santiago: 

The camino crosses through the hillside town along the least straight path possible.

The Road: 

At the far end of town, where there is a small fountain set in a wall, the camino indicates a left turn. Go that way to visit the Romanesque church, or turn right and save yourself the not-strictly-necessary climb and detour.

The camino follows along the paved road until the road turns right to return to the national road; at which point the camino keeps on straight and into the forest. The forest track emerges to a small cluster of homes where you turn right and cross the national road.

Follow the narrow road to Lugar do Corgo and beyond.
