No bars or services apart from a pair of vending machines.

Il cammino: 

At the end of town there are markers for another complementaria route, this time for a detour to the Iglesia de Soutomerille (see below). This worthwhile alternative adds 700m to the journey, through an evergreen forest.

Il cammino: 

The first 1.8km from Gondar are along the paved road. The camino will eventually leave it along a trail to the right. It nears the village of Bascuas 110.2 and then returns to the LU-530. Along this busy road to Lugo you will pass a sign announcing the entrance to...

Bascuas lies to the North of the camino shortly beyond the sand pit.  Black and yellow arrows point to the right and will keep you on the camino, which no longer passes through this village.  Instead it turns left again and parallels the main road into Lugo.

Lugo is the capital of the province of Lugo and one of the most populated cities in Galicia.

The once defensive ‘Muralla’ that surrounds it was built by the Romans in the 3rd century and is as tall as 15 meters in parts. If you have not had your fill of walking, make your way to one of...

Storia: 

As is the case with most places dating back to the Romans, the actual origin of the name Lugo is not clear. Some argue that it is named after Lugos, the God of Light. However back when the Romans were first conquering these parts (13 B.C. ), it was called Lucus Augusti, and...

Attenzione: 

There is a stretch of 10km west of Lugo without any services for pilgrims. Stock up before you leave.

During the last weeks of June, the city celebrates Arde Lucus or Burn Lugo. The residents dress in full Roman regalia and celebrate Lugo's origins. If you are lucky enough to pass through at this time, allow for an extra day to take in all of the activities, but be advised that the celebration draws a crowd of people nearly a half a million strong and book your room early.

Il cammino: 

The camino leaves the walled city at the gate opposite the Cathedral and proceeds downhill along the Rúa de Santiago. Halfway down the hill it bears right onto the Rúa Calzada da Ponte. It crosses a divided boulevard and descends all the way down to the río Miño....

The bar here is the first stop from Lugo. Ignore the worn out sign on the building; it is open daily from 8. They serve food and can wrap you up something to take away if you like. Very pilgrim friendly. The nearby Iglesia de San Vicente is rarely open but if you ask at the bar they may know...

Beyond As Searas, the camino leaves the road for a trail that passes through the village of Bacurin 86.3. During periods of heavy rain, it is possible to stay on the road. From Bacurin the camino returns to the road and passes through the hamlets of O Paso, Hospital...

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.

Il cammino: 

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...
