Camino Portugues

→ 3.00 → Combarro → 3.60km → Miradoiro do Loureiro

To end of camino

Combarro might just be one of the most charming and quintessentially Galician villages on the whole coast. Fishermen have worked these seas for centuries, and the horreós that line the coast (and which appear to hover just above the waterline) were used to dry fish as well as grain.

The town is small and compact and the camino does not actually see the best parts, to get to them keep going straight where the camino turns uphill to the right to join the road.  It would be hard to get lost in Combarro, but if you do deviate from the camino be aware that there is another variation whose arrows might lead you very much astray.

The Road

The Variante Espiritual crosses the road and immediately begins its ascent of the Monte Redondo. The climb varies in intensity from extremely steep to gently rolling and back again. Go gently.

We stayed here Oct 5/22. Note - there is not a large sign and all the name is not on the sign - just an abbreviation of the letters - and you enter along the side, not the front. We walked right by it. It is before you cross the road down to the beach - if you get this far, you need to go back a few hundred meters. We paid 23 euro for a bunk in shared room of 8 beds. Everything is clean and upgraded. There are laundry machines for 4 euro each. Clothelines in an upper greenspace level outdoors. There is a kitchen to use but cannot access after 2300 or before 0730. Breakfast can be obtained for 3 or 5 euro and starts at 0730. There are lockers. The hostess is very kind.

Der kleine Fischerort ist wundervoll und ist ein absolutes Highlight auf meinem Camino von Porto nach Santiago fernab von allen Touristenströmen! Die bereits genannte grandiose Herberge „Albergue Hostel Nuestra Señora del Camino“ macht den Aufenthalt hier perfekt!
