Unfortunately, there is little to say about this modernized town. When it comes to charm, or monuments, or outrageous legends, it comes up short. During the busier periods along the camino the town feels overrun with pilgrims; most of whom are excited to have finished their penultimate day of walking.


Avoid the temptation of following the main road out of Pedrouzo. There are very few arrows to get you back to the camino and following along the road puts you in very real danger and takes you away from a lovely forest walk. See note below to get back to the camino. 

The Road

If you spent the night in O Pedrouzo, it is important to find your way back to the camino proper which runs through the forest to the north. To get to it, find the intersection of the main road and Calle de Condello (where the Casa do Concello is located). Continue uphill (north from here) and in a few hundred meters the camino presents itself. Turn left and continue through the forest to Amenal.

The camino between here and Santiago is a mixture of rural and urban settings, some forests and some sprawl. The up and downs that you have been experiencing continue: the elevation gain/loss is +308/-339m, a not insignificant amount.

Wow. If you have the budget try this place. Truly a unique boutique hotel.

I've managed to buy razors, face soap for sensitive skin, get a leg wax and have a lovely meal navigating it all in broken Spanish, but giving it a red hot go.

If you need a wax, Maria is a bit past the Dia supermarket on the same side. Looks like a salon only but they do waxing, too.

Can recommend the goat's cheese and salmon salad at Galaicos. Yummo! 😋

Lovely 3 room pension. Myriam is very welcoming and informative. Down the street is a restaurant that serves food all afternoon. “Taste the Way” the veggie lasagna and mixed salad restored my abused taste buds.

Sweet stay. Comfy, clean, plenty of hot water. Wood stove to sit by in the common room. Garden space for warm days. Cheery. Recommend!

Stayed in Albergue O Trisquel on the penultimate night of our camino. It was clean, had friendly staff and hot showers. Highly recommend if you plan to stay in O Pedrouzo, but book to avoid disappointment - it fills up very quickly.
