Once again, the flat terrain makes this stage much easier, where you will alternate between dense forests and large meadows, as well as crossing a couple of tributaries of the river Ladra or villages such as San Xoán de Alba or Pedrouzos.
Once you have arrived in Baamonde, you will have time to visit all the monuments in the town, including places such as its famous thousand-year-old chestnut tree, the Víctor Corral House-Museum and the Camarasa Tower.
Day 3: Stage Baamonde – Miraz20 km/ 12 miles
You will wake up in your accommodation in Baamonde, where a good energetic breakfast is included to start the day with your batteries fully charged, and you will begin the hike to Miraz.

Once you have arrived in Miraz, you will have time to rest from the stage or visit places such as the church or the tower for which this small town is known.
Day 4: Stage Miraz – Sobrado dos Monxes20 km/ 12 miles
You will wake up in the accommodation in Miraz, where a good energetic breakfast is included to start the day with your batteries fully charged, and you will begin the hike to Sobrado dos Monxes. Say goodbye to the amiable walk in Terra Chá and say hello to A Coruña. Again you will pass through countless villages, many of them almost depopulated over the years due to the rural exodus. This will mark today’s journey, so you won’t find many places to stock up, just the solitude and tranquillity of the Galician countryside until you reach your destination.
Once you have reached Sobrado dos Monxes, you will have time to rest from the stage or visit places such as its impressive Cistercian monastery or the Roman camp of Ciadella.

Although there are still three more stages to reach the city of Santiago de Compostela, this is the last of the Northern Way as in Arzúa you will join the mass of pilgrims coming from St. Jean Pied de Port or Roncesvalles, following the French Way. Therefore make the most of this last stage, the tranquillity of the Atlantic forests, the quiet country roads and the excellent gastronomy of the area.
