Difficulty level: medium.

We start the stage from the Roman bridge of Ponte Vella in Ourense across the Miño river, one of the best preserved bridges in Spain. We start with a steep climb. Today we can choose two routes: the traditional one through Tamallancos or the alternative one through Canedo. With the latter, the stage is shortened by 1 km, but is much more paved. The stage ends in San Cristovo de Cea, world famous for its homemade bread.

Today we are on the most difficult stage in terms of km. But it is also one of the greenest, mountainous and most rural sections. We enter the typical Galician landscapes. The most fearless have the opportunity to extend the stage even further by turning to see one of the jewels of the day, the Oseira Monastery. We continue towards Castro Dozón and walk towards Lalín. As soon as we arrive in Lalín, we absolutely have to try the famous stew to regain our strength.
