The route

  • Km 0. Arzúa (All Services)

From the rustic Cima do Lugar, where the public hostel is located, we start from the front towards the rustic Punta do Carmen. Its wooden roofs and facades make our way through Arzúa. In a more rural environment we go down to the French fountain, cross the Vello River and then reach As Barrosas and his chapel of San Lázaro (Mojón 36 and Km 0.9). We went down to the river Brandeso, which in turn flows from the Iso (Km 1,8), and we climbed up to the village of the parish of Burres with its chapel of San Paio in the 18th century.

  • Km 2.2. Ask

At the exit we avoided the N-547 by a tunnel and faced a repeat, between meadows, maize crops and overlooking Arzúa, to the site of A Peroxa, also of the parish of Burres (Km 3,3). Eucalyptus increasingly populates the Galician landscape and grasslands, necessary for the survival of livestock and the rural world. They follow each other with their familiar bedspreads drying in the sun. We traveled along paths lined with litter and went down to the riachuelo Ladrón (Km 3.9) to later reach Taberna Vella

  • Km 5.2. Taberna Vella (Lodge-Bar-Shop)

Six hundred meters later we entered Calzada, of the parish of Burres and the last inhabited nucleus of the Concello de Arzúa.

  • Km 5.8. Road (Bar)

We left the population crossing a road and continued to enter the Concello de O Pino, the last one before Santiago. Before entering A Calle, village of San Breixo de Ferreiros, A Ponte de Ferreiros hostel is 200 meters from the Camino.

  • Km 7.8. Street (Bars. Hostel)

We left the nucleus after crossing the Langüello stream and continued through a network of tracks and roads to Boavista (Km 9.3) and Salceda, at the foot of the N-547.

  • Km 11.1. Salceda (Hostels. Bar. 600 meters)

We demarcated a few meters from the national on the right, passing by the memory of the pilgrim Guillermo Watt, who died on the Camino. We go back to the foot of the road and cross it by a concessionaire of agricultural machinery to reach Oxén, the parish of San Miguel de Cerceda (Km 12,5). The road, to the left of the National, now leads to the immediate Ras of the same parish, where we saved the N-547 below (Km 13.1). At this point, pilgrims from the Camino del Norte who have taken the O Pino variant can also link. On the other side is A Brea.

  • Km 13.6. A Brea (Hostel)

In a few hundred meters it leaves A Rabiña and in parallel to the Nacional we easily overcome the climb to O Empalme, of the parish of San Lourenzo de Pastor. In the middle of the journey there is a meadow with a source and a windmill reminiscent of that of American farms. On the high road we cross the road, very careful!, to enter the population.

  • Km 15.3. O Empalme (Bars)

Then we took a runway down under the eucalyptus. Below, through a tunnel under the N-547, we have the option to visit the chapel of Santa Irene and its baroque fountain or go to the private hostel. Next to this hostel is the diversion to the rural hostel Astrar. If we continue in front we arrive at the hostel of the Xunta.

  • Km 16.3. Santa Irene (Hostels)

Thanks to a dense front of eucalyptus we isolated ourselves from the road noise, passed by the Mojón 20, and avoided the road again through a tunnel. A couple of houses and a sawmill and more eucalyptus drive to A Rúa of the parish of Arca.

  • Km 17.9. A Rúa (Bars. Pensions. Rural Houses)

By paved track we reached the edge of the N-547 and climbed by it to O Pedrouzo.

  • Km 19.1. O Pedrouzo (All Services)
