A steep climb followed by paths through tree-lined paths through the countryside.
Climbing out of Ourense is about the most difficult part of the whole route, but once you are at the top there are some truly immense views to reward you.
The paths today are mostly tree lined paths through the rich, green countryside until you reach your overnight stop in Cea.
There is an alternative route today via Canedo. We have chosen the route via Tamallancos as there is less tarmac on this route.
