Stage 27: O Cebreiro - Triacastela

20,8 Km
4h 40m
Urban - Countryside

General information

With just over 1,200 inhabitants, O Cebreiro is the first village in Galicia. Located at an altitude of 1,293 meters, its location has always been important for pilgrims on the French Way.

In 1072, Alfonso VI established a pilgrims' hospital here, which was entrusted to the monks of Saint Girald of Aurillac.

The pallozas are the typical houses of the area with thatched roofs. They do not have a chimney, as the smoke filters through the thatch. Meat is hung in the rafters to be cured by the smoke from the fire.



Most of this stage has gentle slopes, with some inclines between O Cebreiro and Fonfría. From here, most of the way is downhill to Triacastela (662 meters).

The route climbs back up to 900 meters at Alto de Riocaba, before slowly descending to Sarria (453 meters).

Most of today's hike will be on roads and trails, and only a small part on secondary roads. Remember that you are still in the mountains and the weather can change quickly, although the early morning hike is usually beautiful with the clouds in the valleys.

Between Biduedo and Triacastela you will pass through three small villages: Filloval, As Pasantes and Ramil.
