Fiesta

On the 25th of July the small chapel here is the destination for a romería from Fonsagrada in honor of Santiago.

History

The ruins of the old Hospital de Montouto can be found here at the alto, though if history is any indication they may not stay for long; this refuge for pilgrims as been relocated more than once since it was built in 1357 as the camino route itself varied from century to century.

The Road

From this alto it is a 300m descent to Paradavella in less than 4km. The path is entirely off of the road along a forest track.
