The route

We left to the right from the hostel of Lourenzá and, upon reaching the end of the street, we bent to the right to take a very steep slope that reaches the cemetery and then to the small core of Arroxo. In this population we are obliged to take the N-634 towards Grove, a village belonging to the parish of Santa María de Vilamor and to the Concello de Mondoñedo. Jacobean signage now renounces the asphalt and rewards us with a comfortable wooded stretch to San Pedro da Torre. Next to the chapel we went up a road to descend later to the capital of Concello: Mondoñedo, an important town built around its cathedral, which suggests a visit and the first coffee break of the day.

On the cover of the cathedral, the vieiras are recovered, leading to a local road, with hardly any traffic, to climb for the next 8 km to Lousada. Under the chestnut, oak and eucalyptus branches, some villages of the Concello will succumb, such as Barbeitas, Maariz, Pandín, Casavella, Pacio and, finally, Lousada.

In this population, agricultural and livestock and typical Hórges and slate roofs, we left the road to the left and went down a road that climbs to the hermitage of San Cosme da Montaña. At the height of the hermitage, in whose facade there is an indicator shell, we turn left and after a bit we carefully cross the N-634. From this point we continue along more paths, some dirt track and other asphalts to Gontán, where the pilgrims hostel of the Xunta is located. Abadín, capital of the Concello of the same name, is half a kilometer higher.
