We say goodbye to Sobrado dos Monxes, leaving the town from its monumental monastery, and follow the AC-934 road towards Arzúa. Afterwards, we will take a detour between wooded stretches and asphalted tracks, passing through the places of Vilarchao, O Castro, Madelos and As Corredoidas.
From As Corredoiras we must be extremely careful when crossing the road to Betanzos in the direction of Boimil. After Boimil, we will reconnect with the AC-934 and continue walking to A Gándara (Boimorto), where we will have the opportunity to see an ancient Roman milestone, used to mark the roads.
Once we have crossed A Gándara, we will continue towards Sendelle, where we can stop to visit its magnificent church of Santa María and make a stop on the way. Now we face the last part of the North road, culminating the stage in the town of Arzúa, famous for its cheeses.
Sobrado dos Monxes is the last start of the North Way stage, and from here, the route continues along the French Way itinerary, so when you get to Arzúa you will notice a greater influx of pilgrims.
