VFC-Day 9: Negreira-Olveiroa-33.5km

Today Day 9: Negreira-Olveiroa, you face the most challenging stage in Fisterra Camino it is long 33km. There are quite a few steep stages to the day and you will have to spend some time walking on asphalt roads.

However, there are also beautiful forests and meadows. Passing through small villages with many old Galician granaries hórreos (constructions made from stone or wood, raised above the ground by pillars and meant for storing crops). They are unique to rural Galician architecture and a distinguishing trait of the landscape.

Once in Vilaserío then through to Santa Mariña, you have a constant hilly walk.  Reaching a steep climb to Monte Aro. This is the highest point in Fisterra Camino. Enjoy the fantastic panoramic view. The path then continues through Fervenza reservoir and Hospital then finally descending into Olveiroa where you will cross the Xallas River via Ponte Olveiroa to your destination today.

Buen Camino
