Leaving Palace de Rei, you will soon reach San Xulian do Camino, a classical Camino village with a tiny 12th Century church dedicated to Saint Julian. After crossing the provincial border you pass through the hamlet of O Coto and village of Leboreiro. Perhaps stopping for lunch at the town of Melide, famed for its octopus dishes ‘pulpo Galega’.

The shaded forests of oak and chestnut give way to eucalyptus and pine before you ascend to Arzua.

Todays walk was long with the first half to Melide the most enjoyable with few hills and interesting features on the way. The second half had more steep hills and less interesting features.
