This is the longest stage of the French Way within the Galician community, 29 kilometres separate you from your destination, so we recommend taking it easy and enjoying the surroundings, as it is also one of the most beautiful stretches of the route. Already in the province of A Coruña, dirt roads, lush forests and medieval bridges will guide your way to Santiago de Compostela.
For every pilgrim it is obligatory to make a stop in Melide, capital of the Galician octopus; in any of its many pulperías you will be able to taste this delicacy of the Galician gastronomy. After recovering your strength, the last kilometres will not involve much effort and once you reach Arzúa you will have the rest of the day to rest body and mind.
Once you get to Arzúa, you should not miss tasting the typical cheese to which it gives its name: Denomination of Origin Arzúa-Ulloa; accompanied by other typical products of the area.
