Information

After yesterday’s endless journey, today the Camino will give us a break. It is a short stage in which we will finally meet the Atlantic Ocean. The itinerary starts in Olveiroa and passes through solitary landscapes that give us beautiful panoramic views until we reach Cee. Many pilgrims choose to continue straight to Finisterre, but it is convenient to divide it to enjoy the Camino in complete tranquility.

Map

We say goodbye to Olveiroa by the road, passing in front of the restaurant-pension As Pías, taking a path on the left hand side, which takes us on the way to the coast of Cee.
The itinerary ascends towards Alto do Sino, in the direction of a wind farm with beautiful views over the valley of the river Xallas and the Castrelo reservoir. On the way down, we cross a stream and arrive at the village of Logoso, where we can make our first stop of the day.

We continue along a dirt road to Hospital and we continue along a road to the left that leads us in the direction of a factory. After reaching a large roundabout, we find a fork marked with two milestones.

Now we have to choose, the Road to Finisterre or the Road to Muxía.

We take the turning on the left towards Cee.
We go along the shoulder and cross the road to leave it on the right, taking a beautiful dirt track. When we reach an old crossroads that marks an intersection, we continue straight ahead along a dirt road that leads us to the Hermitage of Nuestra Señora de las Nieves.

Now an ascent takes us through pleasant wooded paths.
We pass the chapel of San Pedro Mártir and continue to the cruceiro da Armada. After passing an iron cross we finally see the Atlantic Ocean, a panoramic view that encourages us to give one last push to our stage.
We begin a fairly steep descent that takes us to the district of Os Camiños Chans, already in the town of Cee.

To consider

Once we leave Olveiroa, after passing Logoso and from Hospital, we will find a long stretch of 15 km without services until we reach Cee. It is convenient to be proactive and stock up everything you need for the route.

If we have the time and desire, we can take a taxi from Cee to visit the impressive
Ézaro Waterfall
. A beautiful waterfall located at the mouth of the Xallas, the only river in Europe that falls directly into the sea in the form of a waterfall. Quite a show.
