On Day 5: Melide – Arzua 14km where pretty much most of the way to Santiago you will wind your way in and out of pine and eucalyptus forest. There will be quite a steep descent into Ribadiso da Baixo.
Finally, you arrive at the town of Arzúa. The most significant city (6,000 inhabitants) before Santiago. Famous for its local cheese Queixo Arzúa-Ulloa. Visit the 14th century Capilla de la Magdalena, all that is left of a former Augustinian monastery.
