Stage 31: Palas de Rei - Arzúa

28,5 Km
6h 45m
Road - Urban

General information

Although there is now little in Palas de Rei to recall its historic past as a 12th century Royal Palace, there are some vestiges. The church of San Tirso has a Romanesque doorway and features a medieval building decorated with scallop shells.

The town of Melide has a long history with the Camino and a very active market. The church of San Pedro is located on the route into Melide. In front of the church is a 14th century cross that is one of the best in Galicia.



Today's route is shorter than usual and the terrain is easy to ride, with no steep slopes or steep descents. You will pass through a few towns and villages, so it will be easy to get food and water when you need it. Unless, of course, you want to take a break and have lunch in a nice place outdoors.

You will walk among oak and eucalyptus forests for most of the day, and their wonderful smell will join you shortly after Melide.

The last village you will pass through on this day is Ribadiso, which is 3 km from Arzúa.
