It is the road that connects Santiago with the south of the peninsula, it follows the route of various “Roman roads” that linked the north with the south of the peninsula. A road less traveled but no less beautiful for that.

We left Lalín to face a stage that does not entail too much difficulty, we will cross the Dela River (which gives its name to the region and which was the fief of the powerful Counts of Deza) and after crossing the Tranfontao forest we will arrive at Bandeira where we will finish our stage and we will stay.
Today’s stage (simple and short) will take us to cross the Ulla river that borders the province of La Coruña and Pontevedra and which owes its fame to lamprey fishing (delicatessen appreciated since the time of the Romans). We will finish our stage in Vedra where we will stay.

Our forefathers used to say “He who visits Santiago but not Oviedo, visits the servant but not the master”. This route follows the path of the first known itinerary taken by Alfonso II in the 9th century to visit the newly discovered tomb of the Apostle Saint James.
Its name comes from the country that it passed through in the Middle Ages and that has left its mark in places as important as Paris and its Tour de Saint Jacques. Today it is the most popular route, not in vain more than 60% of pilgrims who walk to Santiago choose her. Despite being the busiest it does not lose an iota of its charm and that is shown by the pilgrims who repeat.
In seas far north, day after day
We leaned upon the rail, engrossed
In frolic fin and jewel spray
And crystal headlands of the coast.
