R4 – Day 1: O Cebreiro

O Cebreiro is the first village in Galicia, a delightful hilltop hamlet. From here you have a spectacular 360º view. This image will remain in your mind forever. O Cebreiro is an iconic location for its outlook, church, legends and its “pallozas”, typical Galician construction, round stone houses with a straw roof.

Enjoy the specialities of this land: Pulpo (octopus) and the local Cebreiro cheese.

Make sure you get to the Pilgrims Mass. Whether you are religious or not the Mass here has a special spirit as does this land. Then settle into your cosy room for the night and prepare yourself for your first day of walking Camino de Santiago!
