  • Duration: 5h 30m

Breakfast and start of our first stage of the Way of Saint James from Orense, crossing the spectacular Roman bridge over the Miño River, followed by a steep ascent to reach the town of Sartedigos.

The stage will alternate between dirt tracks and asphalt, along with numerous corridors and centuries-old chestnut and oak forests. This is a predominantly rural area, dotted with small parishes and villages like Cudeiro, Sartedigos, Tamallancos, Bouzas, Sobreira, Faramontaos, Viduedo, Pazos, Casanovas, before finishing in Cea.

In this stage, the main point of interest is the Ponte Sobreira, a beautiful medieval bridge over the Barbantiño river.

Arrival in Cea: End of stage. Lodging

Breakfast and start of the stage.

From Cea, we have two options in our itinerary of the Way of Saint James from Orense: the Official route and the variant that passes by the Monastery of Oseira (4 kms longer). We leave the decision to each pilgrim. Both options converge in Castro Dozón, becoming a single Way until the Lalin Station.

A long stage with terrain marked by continuous slopes, but not too demanding. The terrain we are going to cover is very similar to that of the previous stage, as well as the type of localities, multitude of parishes and scattered villages that we will pass through (Cotelas – Piñor – O Reino – Castro Dozón – Puxallos – Pontenoufe – A Xesta), before ending the day’s stage.
