• A small bridge over the Barcala River leads the pilgrim out of Negreira. At certain points along the way, the camino merges with the old camino real to Fisterra. The evocative names of towns such as Camino Real and Portocamino are reminiscent of these routes.

    Before arriving at today’s destination in Olveiroa, you will pass through the small villages of Vilaserio, Maronas and Corzon.
