At first sight, there appears to be little of note in the very tiny town of Doriga. The church and bar stand across from one another. However just down the road a few meters to the east (turn right at the church) is the enormous and amazing Palacio de Doriga. Its earliest construction, the tower, dates back to the 14th century. Although it is private property, you can still walk right up to the gate and admire the garden and manor from a respectable distance.
Shortly beyond Doriga, the camino passes under the highway and on the other side it meets up with the alternate route that went through Cabruñana. Be mindful not to walk the wrong way back up to Cabruñana. The camino turns left sharply onto a narrow trail and descends to the quarry/village of Las Casas del Puente.
