As you leave Baamonde through the roundabout at the town centre, towards the old main road to A Coruña, you have to follow that road for 3 kilometres, parallel to the River Parga and the railroad. You have to cross the Puente de San Alberte and reach the chapel of the same name, where you will find a fountain.READ MORE
You continue walking through a forest of “carballos” (oak trees), the typical Galician tree now replaced in many areas by pine and eucalyptus trees. The village of Carballedo, in the municipality of Guitiriz, offers a Punto de Apoyo al Peregrino (Pilgrims’ Support Office), properly signposted. This initiative by a local woman offers pilgrims free internet access, the opportunity to stamp their Credential, as well as information and provisions. There is also a new hostel in this area.
You have to continue towards Seixón, in the municipality of Friol, and then cross the River Parga again to reach Miraz, either on the road or onto a footpath that takes a longer detour.
Tips from our postmen and women
What to do and see in Miraz?
“The Torre de Miraz, an old medieval fortress, is attached to an 18th-century manor. It is now a private home, the tower houses heirlooms, an archive and a library.
In the month of March, we celebrate the “Feira do Queixo e do pan de Ousá” in Friol. Our cheese is under the denomination of origin Arzúa-Ulloa, a typical product of this area, together with the Pan de Ousá, from an area in the municipality where there is a long tradition of bakers who sell their bread all over the street markets and fairs in Lugo. A monthly market is held every first Sunday of each month”.
