Today you will leave Terra Chá and you will get to A Coruña. You will cross again lots of villages and small villages.You won’t find many services. Once you get to Sobrado dos Monxes you will enjoy its wonderful monastery.
If you have stayed the night in Baamonde you will have to see the previous’ stage itinerary to know how to get to Miraz because this will be the starting point in today’s stage. The first thing that you will see is the Iglesia de Santiago church and then you will have to go through a path to the left, the yellow arrows will indicate you the way. You will walk through the Monte Vilaldar mount. After some kilometers, you will get to A Braña where you will have to get to a path towards San Mamede de Nodar that belongs to Friol. You will leave this path to get to the LU-P-2119 that will lead you to Roixaca and A Cabana where you will have to turn right to get to another path. After some small villages, you will cross the LU-934. We have already done half of this stage, among small villages and local roads. You will cross Marco das Pías a village located between Sobrado dos Monxes and Friol and also between A Coruña and Lugo. We now star descending towards Sobrado, about 9 kilometers away and leaving the road to one side at the small place of Meson. We will pass by Esgueva and Muradelo, along descending paths. You will have to go through the AC-934 towards Guitiriz, where you will see an artificial reservoir called La Laguna de Sobrado built by the monks of the Monasterio de Santa María monastery. After crossing this reservoir you will get to the village, where you will find all the needed services. This village is perfectly integrated in the landscape, surrounded by fields and forests. All this area is a clear example of the Galician Atlantic forest, with remarkable wetlands full of varied fauna and flora. After passing by this place, pilgrims will reach the historical center of the village, where they can find both the hostel and the rest of services they need. Here you can visit the Monasterio de Santa María de Sobrado monastery, also known as Monasterio de sobrado dos Monxes that was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its beauty. If we have time and do not mind walking a little, we can also visit the Roman campgrounds of the citadel, about 5 kilometers away.
