For half of the day's route follow natural pathways with good shade, and end the stage with a gentle climb around the alta de Santra Irene.

Leave the old quarter of Arzua as the Camino leads past oak tree forests, that 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.

Throughout the day you’ll be passing different villages: Brea, Calzada, Rua and A Calle; the meaning of which is synonymous with ‘Camino’.
