To end of camino

The bar in San Román is open daily from 11am. Nice and helpful, they keep tabs on the bed availability in the two albergues up the trail; which are often listed as being in San Román.

The Road

Things tend to get a bit tricky here if you are not fully aware. San Román sits at the intersection of two country roads, and from here the camino goes off in two different directions, or at least it did until last year. This means that old arrows may still exist which would take you to Palas de Rei on the Camino Francés rather than to Melide.

From the bar in San Román head west (turn right when leaving the bar). When you emerge on the road some 70m later, cross the road and take the path opposite you. The albergues are a short distance onward.



Bar does not exist.


Bar IS OPEN as of October 2021.


No bar to be found in San Roman. The first option you have in many km is the bar/food service at the Albergue O Candido.


The bar is gone as of july 22. There is a bar at the next Albergue. The young bunch from the municipal came up in the morning and thier buddies let them in so they cleaned out the included breakfast before many of us got to it.


There is a bar at the Albergue O Candido. A very welcome break after all the road walking.
