For those of you who are taking on the challenge of the final 5 days betwwen Sarria and Santiago De Compostela, this 29km stage is the longest stage and finishes up with some hilly terrain that will probably present you with your toughest walking test of the 5 days, not just because of the terrain, but also because of the fact that it faces you at the end of the stage.
The town of Melide marks the half way point in the stage and serves as a good point to take a lengthy lunch and break. For those finding it a struggle coming to the end, Ribadiso is also a nice place to take a break – there’s a nice cafe just after you cross over a pretty stone bridge at the river. When you get walking again, at least you know that you only have about 3km remaining to Arzúa.
Full walking notes for this stage of the Camino will be published here soon. In the meantime, if you want to get these notes, just contact us!
