You have two choices today. Either a longer walk via the Benedictine monastery at Samos or a shorter but hillier and more scenic route via San Xil.

Make a decision today if you would like to walk the southern detour route via Samos or the northern direct route via San Xil, both options are detailed in your book.

The shorter northern route has new woodland paths which have increased the natural paths by 60% and it takes you up a steep climb to alto do Riocabo, which has beautiful views.  The southern route takes you along the busy LU-633 and via the Benedctine monastery of Samos which is one of the oldest and largest monastries in Spain.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
