This stage is probably one of the most difficult but most beautiful of the entire trip. We will cross the Miño River and ascend to Ribadelouro. It may take some time as a large part of the itinerary goes through asphalt and urban areas, but pilgrims who want a more natural environment have been given an alternative that crosses the As Gándaras Natural Park to O Porriño. This alternative is also well marked.
