Our stage today runs from Abadín through the evocative landscapes of the region of A Terra Chá, where we find Vilalba. This is a pleasant stage, with no gradients and very interesting scenery. We will cross areas of soft topography, dominated by green meadows and small forests of Atlantic vegetation.


We will leave Abadín and head towards Vilalba, on our way to As Paredes, which we will reach after crossing the river Anllo. Later, after crossing the river Arnela, we continue our way through charming landscapes through a corredoira and we arrive at the place of Martiñán. In Martiñán we will have to take extreme precautions to cross the national road and continue towards A Ponte Vella, a beautiful bridge dating from the 17th century, next to which there is a charming rest area where we can make a stop.

We continue our way towards the village of O Campo do Cristo, from where there are only 5 kilometres left to get to Vilalba. Our reference points before completing the stage will be the pilgrims’ hostel in Vilalba and the Camporredondo path.

To consider

During the 20 kilometres that separate Vilalba from Abadín we will find few services. So it is advisable to go out well stocked with water and drink.
