Day 6:    Ribadeo - Mondoñedo (38 km / 23.5 mi)

Your path leads you to Mondoñedo, a town of historical significance, capital of the region of A Mariña Central and episcopal see since the Middle Ages.

Day 8:    Vilalba - Sobrado dos Monxes (52 km / 32.5 mi)

Today you will enjoy this varied route: tracks, dirt roads, paths and muddy corredoiras (tractor ruts). At the first half of your route you won’t hardly have any gradients in a pleasant rural environment. Your path takes you to Baamonde, a small village surrounded by lush greenery, before entering in a very solitary route, which you will enjoy it before arriving to the multitudes. The quiet paths through the Galician countryside will take you to As Cruces, very close to Sobrado dos Monxes, which welcomes you with its historic monastery.

Challenge: 52 km / 32.5 mi, 635 m ascent

Day 9:    Sobrado dos Monxes – Santiago de Compostela (56 km / 35 mi)

In contrast to the previous routes, in which you walk along dirt tracks between small villages, today the landscape is becoming much more urban, as you are approaching Santiago. The route converges in Arzúa with the maelstrom of the French Way. At first glance, this stage seems to provide little interest with its monotonous movement alongside the main road. Yet today ends up being one of the most exciting of the whole week as you feel the collective energy grow, joining hordes of fellow pilgrims all excited to be nearly there! Burst back into modern life as you rush along past the regional airport and cross the highway, railway and ring-road drawn by an immense, irresistible magnet: Plaza Obradoiro. The urban hustle and bustle will not deter you and it’s still easy to imagine ancient pilgrims weeping with joy as they glimpsed the distant spires. Historically, pilgrims pause at Monte do Gozo to set their sights then make one last stop at the spring in Lavacolla, to cleanse their face and feet before meeting their beloved saint.

Challenges: 56 km / 35 mi, 625 m ascent

Day 10:    End of Arrangement
