Camino Sanabrés (The Sanabria Way)

A Gudiña - Laza

30 km Difficulty
The Camino leaves A Gudiña through its Calle Mayor towards Laza. The path goes through the Serra Seca, an area of deserted villages, and through hills across A Venda do Espiño and A Venda da Teresa. Here you have completed 8 kilometres across moorlands and through depopulated areas in Galicia's mountainous inland.

A Venda da Capela welcomes you to the municipality of Vilariño de Conso, where you will find the River Camba and the dam of As Portas. After A Venda do Bolaño, you will be close to Campobecerros, already in the municipality of Castrelo do Val, a village that you will reach after a sharp descent. Here you can find all services.

Campobecerros grew thanks to the construction of the railway line Zamora-Ourense. Before the railway was built, the inhabitants of Campobecerros were carboeiros, i.e., people who produced charcoal by burning peat. 

This place is close to the natural park Parque Natural do Invernadeiro, home to wolves, boars, ermines and pine martens. You can also find deer, roe deer and wild goats.

After you cross Campobecerros, a local road will take you to the small village of Portocamba, located 3 kilometres away. Then you ascend to higher ground, walking past the Pilgrims’ Cross and enjoying the views over the valley.

You then start descending towards As Eiras, an area where you can take a break, with shade and a fountain. You continue your walk crossing the River Cereixo and reaching Laza through the main road OU-112.

In Laza, there are river pools and several routes, for example, the Pista do Marroquí, a walk parallel to the railway line.

This town in Ourense is famous for its “Entroido”, the traditional Carnival with its “Peliqueiros”, considered to be one of the oldest Carnival traditions in the world.
