For a good percentage of walkers, the rustic Maior de Sarria is the 0 kilometer of their pilgrimage to Compostela. In the early hours of the day and, above all, in the summer months, the street would give to perform more than reliable statistics on the ages, races, nationalities and clothing of pilgrims heading to Santiago. The initial 2.9-kilometer stretch between Sarria and As Paredes offers an excellent stage start. After the Rúa Maior, passing by the building of the Preventive Prison, we reached the viewpoint over Sarria, adorned with a cruise. About three hundred meters after the viewpoint, the Camino joins the Convento de la Magdalena, mainly of the Gothic and Renaissance factory and ruled by the Padres Venezdarios. The stage descends next to the wall of the cemetery to the Rio Menor, the tributary of the Sarria. The medieval Ponte Áspera allows you to cross it (Km 1,2).
Next to small meadows and private gardens, we went under a viaduct to cross the roads. Behind them we saved a creek thanks to a wooden walkway (2.2). The course of water gives way to a hard repecho along the way - enveloped by proud chestnuts - that goes up to the place of As Paredes (Mojón 109), where a castro prerequisite of the same name is established. The village appears later.

From here, by neighborhood court, we approached Vilei where he received a sculpture in memory of Don Germán Arias. Right away, on the left hand side, we see the Km 108 rest area of Vilei, full of all kinds of vending machines: coffee, soft drinks, snacks, batteries... and a seal to decorate the credential even more.
- Km 3.7. Vilei (Hostel. Bar)
Once again by paved runway we progress to the parish of Barbadelo, an informative panel brings our attention to the Romanesque church of Santiago, several meters from the Camino. Surrounded by the camposanto, the covers and capitals deserve their attention.
- Km 4,5. Barbadelo (Hostels. Bar)
We left the pilgrim hostel of Barbadelo on the right hand and continued again on the paved road to the villages of Rente (Km 5.3) and Mercado da Serra, with tavern and located at the junction of the LU-5709.
- Km 6. Mercado da Serra (Bar-Shop)
When you cross, you don't continue along the road, you take a tree-lined corridor that comes from the front. Five minutes later we went by a fountain decorated with Pelegrín, the mascot of the Xacobeo 93 (Km 6.6). Seven hundred meters later we arrived by the doors of the Mill of Marzán in 1920. In March 2014 the house-hostel of the same name was opened (Km 7.3). We turn ninety degrees right through the winter pass, which prevents us from putting our foot in the water raft. Soon we crossed the LU-633 to pass Leiman
- Km 8.2. Leiman
Then there is Peruscallo, with bakery and the presence of some Hórges (Km 9.2 and Mojón 103). For the time being, we say goodbye to the asphalt to advance by corredoira towards Cortiñas (Km 10 and Mojón 102) and Lavandeira (Mojón 101,5).
Between stone walls and chestnuts we reach Brea (Km 11.5 and Mojón 100.5) to reach, first the false mojón of the 100 and a few meters later the real, crowned with stones and bathed in graffiti. It would be enough to start on foot at this point to get the Compostela but the pilgrimage is not a certificate. Destiny is Camino itself. A few meters later is Morgade.
- Km 12. Morgade (Hostel. Bar)
At the exit, a poster welcomes the Concello de Paradela, which takes over from the Sarrian. We reached Ferreiros, the first parish in Paradela.
- Km 13.1. Ferreiros (Hostels. Bar)
We descend by paved runway to the immediate Mirallos (Km 13.6 and Mojón 98). On the left hand side there is a restaurant that runs Natalia and has 25 beds for pilgrims. The price is donative and in the bar they give breakfasts, menus, snacks, etc.
- Km 13.6. Mirallos (Hostel. Bar)
Then there is the Romanesque church of Santa Maria, which came down stone to stone from Ferreiros in 1790. The Camino is directed by asphalt from Mirallos to A Pena.
- A Pena (Hostel. Bar)
We then advanced to Couto (Km 14.7) and Rozas (Km 15 and Mojón 97). It won't be strange to encounter a family guiding livestock from one place to another. Leaving the place of Rozas behind comes the Cairn 96.5. It also means leaving, for at least one section, the asphalted track to take a path in a light it costs to shelter the oak and pine trees. At the first crossing, we continue on the left. The Mojón 95.5 announces the proximity of Moimentos, a village to which we arrived, having previously left a wooden cross wrapped with barbed wire and crossing the road LU-4203 (Km 16.4). In a few minutes we arrived at Mercadoiro.
- Km 16.8. Mercadoiro (Hostel. Bar)
The route then leads to the next Moutrás, where there is a food, beverage, parafarmacy and craft shop.
- Km 17.1. Moutrás (Peter Pank Store)
After a hill and paved slopes we descend to Parrocha (Km 18.7) and Vilachá, the last village of the Camino belonging to Paradela, where South African Gordon Bell opened a hostel in the spring of 2014. In 2016 he also opened 'Los Andantes', a vegetarian restaurant bar.
- Km 20. Vilachá (Hostel. Vegetarian restaurant)
A sudden descent brings us to the Miño River, packed by Belesar (Mojón 90). The bridge, over 350 meters long, brings us closer to the Portome of white and gray roofs. The entrance to the village is made by one of the arches of the old Roman - medieval bridge, rebuilt to establish a staircase and place a small chapel. We go up through it and pass the Virtual Information Center to the Pilgrim we head to the center of the town. In the public hostel, although the distance traveled today may seem infinitely greater, we solved the 22.4 kilometers of the stage.
- Km 22.4 Portakín (All Services)
