Day 15: Palas de Rei – Arzua

Today Palas de Rei – Arzua is a long day.

Most of the way you will Walk downhill, crossing many creeks. Reaching Melide in the middle of your journey. A mandatory stop to enjoy the most famous Pulpo (octopus) in Galicia. Look out for Ezequiel and Garnacha, two of the most renowned octopus restaurants in Galicia.

Winding your way in and out of pine and eucalyptus forest, eventually, you come to a steep descent into Ribadiso da Baixo.

Finally, arriving in Arzúa, the most significant city (6,000 inhabitants) before Santiago. Famous for its local cheese Queixo Arzúa-Ulloa. While there visit the 14th-century Capilla de la Magdalena, all that is left of a former Augustinian monastery.
