La Faba

La Faba is a small village that is reached from Villafranca del Bierzo through many small villages of just a few dozen inhabitants. By the time you reach La Faba, you finished a serious climb. The whole area is very hilly and situated in one of the more challenging parts of the Camino.

There is not much to do here except to take a rest after the strenuous walk, but for those pilgrims who don’t want to go to O Cebreiro, there is also an Albergue in this hamlet.
