Leaving the old quarter of Arzua the Camino leads past sturdy oak trees, which give way to lush meadows. Visit the medieval shrine at Santa Irene, dedicated to a martyr saint from Portugal and the Baroque fountain of healing waters.

Upon leaving Arzua perhaps pick up some of the region’s delicious cheese for lunch. Throughout the day you’ll be walking through different villages: Brea, Calzada, Rua and A Calle; the meaning of which is synonymous with ‘Camino’.

Author’s recommendation

Over half of this stage is on natural pathways with good shade. It ends with a gentle climb around the Alta de Santra Irene. In between its a largely level path with just three shallow river valleys.
