2.00km → Pacio

Picnic area at entrance to village.

The Mesón Catro Ventos is to your right when you arrive at this road interchange.

Il cammino: 

The camino crosses over the road here only to cross back when it gets to Silvela.


The camino between Padrón and O Cádavo is arguably the most difficult of the route, and possibly the reason for the nickname "Rompe Piernas". Allow for extra time, especially after a rain since many of the sections become thick with mud.
