You leave Lugo exiting the Roman Wall through the gate of Santiago until you reach the Roman bridge over the River Miño. If you follow the signs, you will find the Chapel of San Lorenzo and the hilltop of A Louzaneta. The route goes up to the provincial road 2901 and then follows a path parallel to it leading you to the Casa Grande de Carrigueiros, where you will have completed 9 kilometres.READ MORE
You can follow the road to Poutomillos until you reach a detour to your right, please pay attention or else you might miss it. The next municipality in this section is Guntín, where you can see a Roman milestone on the Campo do Busto in San Román da Retorta.
You can either stay at San Romao de Retorta or else walk another 7 km and stay at Ponte Ferreira, where you will find a bridge surrounded by water mills. The old Roman road from Lugo to Iria Flavia used to cross this area here and you can follow it as a sort of shortcut to Melide, where the Original Way meets the French Way.
