The Road

Where the camino returns to the road at the start of O Pedrouzo you will find an abundance of arrows and a large map which is nearly worthless. Arrows and dozens of signs advertising various hostels and hotels point in every direction. If you have a reservation, review the map to find the best path, otherwise turn left up the road. If you are not staying the night in O Pedrouzo, cross the road here and continue along the camino.



There is a corporate-y feelimg restaurant on the way out of town. Good for breakfast.


When you enter the village on your left you see Albergue Xacobeo, and it is by far the most pleasant stay I’ve had on the Camino. Very clean and new, extremely helpful staff and furthermore very calm surroundings. They offer kitchen, washing machine and provides fresh linen for everyone. Cant say this enough, best 12 euro I’ve spent yet!


On the left as you enter A Rua, new white building this place is the best designed albergue,for over 700kms, only just opened, superb facilities, 10euro incl linen, it just doesn't get any better.
