The Way of Saint James – Camino de Santiago -, is one of the most important Christian pilgrimages since the Middle Ages. Every year thousans of pilgrims and tourists come to experience one of the most mystical and amazing routes all over the world.
The most common start for those who want to walk the last stages of the Camino is the city of Sarria.
The first day will take you to Portomarín after a nice walk through chesnut tress and oaks. Finally you will cross the bridge over the river Miño to get to the historic town of Portomarín.
Today´s walk follows the same pattern as yesterday, coming through rural areas and crossing small villages. Although the slopes are moderate in general, in the first half of the stage we will climb around 350m, so take your time and enjoy.
The 29 kilometer route for today is not quite difficult and you will do it easily. Similar to the other days, you will come across lots of small villages on your way and as get closer to Santiago, these villages provide more and more services to the pilgrim’s needs.
Today´s walk from Arzúa is quite smooth, the only thing that stands out is the long descent to Pedrouzo, the end of our stage from Alto de Santa Irene. The predominant vegetation of the stage are eucalyptus forests and grasslands and meadows.

«Jorge went above and beyond the call of duty!»
I wore hiking boots that were too waterproof the first day and got massive blisters. We pivoted and asked Jorge if I could ride an ebike the rest of the way. No lie, a bike came in a giant box to the hotel the next day! I had a great time riding. Hotels were okay, some didn’t have AC or had beds that were too small for my tall spouse. Food was excellent!
