8. From A Fonsagrada to O Cádavo

This is a challenging day with a steep descent to Montouto and an ascent after Paradavella. But the climb after the village of A Lastra will prove to be the most difficult, especially for untrained hikers.

In the first hamlet, Montouto you can see the ruins of a pilgrim hospital.

There is a store and a bar in Paradavella and a very small bar in A Lastra. Stop at one of these locations before the climb.

In O Cádavo you will find more bars and restaurants as well as a pilgrim hostel and the Hotel Moneda where you can get a good breakfast in the morning.
