Camino Portugues

→ 6.70 → Os Castaños → 6.20km → Puente Arnelas

To end of camino

There is a small bar (seasonal) on your left as you reach this junction. There is a larger bar/restaurant just over the river.

The Road

As you approach Puente Arnelas you need to follow the arrows that lead you up a steel and wood walkway under the belly of the bridge. At the top, turn right to get up to the road level and follow it into the small village. A short ways on the camino joins the broad Río Umia.

We stayed at this place just as you get to Os Castanos and right at the turn of the trail.
The restaurant is very apparent and quite busy but very good. We had to wait about an hour to check into our room - I think between 1500-1600. The rooms are private. Accommodation very nice. We paid 55 euro for a twin room including a very good breakfast. I did not see anywhere for hanging laundry other than on a railing outside your window. The acting manager was very nice, very busy but also very accommodating.

We found this beautiful hotel in os castanos, just a little deviation from the route, with affordable prices (the same as an albergue in combarro, approx. 30€ per person), private room with bathtub and buffet breakfast. It is run by Marta, a lovely host. Definitely recommended.

Hotel O Noso Fogar is a great budget hotel option I discovered. The woman running it offered an early dinner for pilgrims as well as breakfast. Highly recommended!


The subject line did not appear, but my comments are about Chiringo de Concha.


Super quick, very nice people. Had a box of apples set out for taking. Lots of seating.


If you want chillax ambiance and friendly quick service, stop at Chiringo de Concha. We passed it by at first, went to Os Castaños and waited a LONG time for service and food. A 20 minute stop turned into two hours. Then we had to stay overnight since we didn’t want to arrive in Praia Terrón at 6:30-7:00pm. (Rooms over at Os Castaños are lovely by the way). Just sat down here by the river for some early evening libations. Fab.
