Chemin Sanabrés

A Laxe - Outeiro

34 km Difficulty
The first village you will find after leaving A Laxe is Prado, after 2 kilometres. You cross the beautiful bridge of Taboada on the River Deza and you continue your climb past the cross and the Romanesque church of Santiago to Transfontao, where you will find a beautiful 18th-century manor.

A cobbled path and then a gravel road will take you to the Avenida del Parque, already in Silleda. This is a key spot for agricultural events and provides many services as well as lots of “parrilladas”, steak houses where you can have a nice “churrasco”: grilled pork or beef on charcoal.

You follow from Silleda to Bandeira and from there the Camino goes past hamlets such as Dornelas, with their vegetable gardens and fields. The River Ulla appears, magnificent, with its two tall bridges: one recently built for the fast-speed train, and the other for the older railway line.

You have to cross the river and leave the province of Pontevedra behind to enter the province of A Coruña, with Ponte Ulla, in the municipality of Vedra, as the first village. Then you continue along an underpass and along the path that leads to Outeiro.

Tips from our postmen and women

“In Ponte Ulla, close to the old railway bridge, there is a park and a viewpoint, the “Mirador de Gundián”, from where you can admire the river”. Miguel Troitiño, Correos of Vedra.
