3.50km → A Guarda → 1.20km → Area Grande
To Santiago: 

A Guarda prides itself on serving the freshest catch-of-the day seafood in Galicia.


A Guarda's single most important natural landmark is the mountain peak to the south, the Monte de Santa Trega. If you choose to make the hike to the top you will be rewarded with more than great views. On the way up is an Iron Age Celtic hill fort (castro) and museum, and at the top a small chapel.

The Road: 

Leave A Guarda along the Rúa Puerto Rico, passing the municipal albergue. The arrows are poor here and the best way is to keep an eye out for a sign indicating the way to Playa Area Granda, a left turn off the Rúa Puerto Rico.

Follow this road all the way to the sea and turn right. Ahead is a small beach, followed by a curve in the road, and then a slightly larger beach. This is the Area Grande.

We stayed at the Hotel Bruselas. The rooms were nice and clean. It has a bar inside and included breakfast. The owner who loves pilgrims met the with us at check in with cold glasses of fresh orange juice. She also gave us information concerning local attractions such as the Roman ruins.

Hotel Bruselas was an excellent hotel with rooms for multiple people. 4 of us (2 couples) stayed in a quadruple room with a queen bed and two twin beds. Very clean and modern with plenty of room. The shower was hot and had a rain shower head. One of the nicest hotels along the trail. We paid 58 euros total. A continental breakfast was included. The owners were very kind and attentive. A full grocery store and multiple restaurants are within a couple minutes walking distance.
