We hope yesterday’s hard stage didn’t strain your knees. Today’s stage is much simpler and will allow you to recover energy.
Let’s continue on the Camino Ingles!
Today, we will advance on tracks, mostly made of dirt and asphalt, crossing countless hamlets and villages. The proximity of the capital of Santiago de Compostela is evident with the influx of pilgrims walking on the roads along this stage.

On today’s stage we will travel 24.8 kilometres from Bruma to Sigueiro. An accessible distance for most pilgrims. On the route you will find some small, uneven slopes.
Bruma Mesón do Vento (km. 0). Beginning of stage
Practical tips for this stretch: In this section you will only find a bar in O Porto, but it opens after 9 am. Buen Camino!
Along a local road we leave Bruma and enter the Concello (council) of Ordes, passing through O Seixo, in the parish of San Pedro de Ardemil. We continue straight on, cross the Rego de Adran and arrive at Cabeza de Lobo, where the Church of San Pedro is located (km. 3).
We pass by a series of sculptures, among which is the one of Santiago, and we continue through some small hamlets in Ardemil: A Carreira, As Mamoas, A Fraga and O Porto (km. 5,1). From this last place, we go down to the creek, then ascend a few metres to A Carballeira.
At the exit of this hamlet, we take a path that runs immersed in a pine forest and that flows into Os Ramos, of the parish of San Paio de Buscas. We leave the centre on the right and on a local road we reach A Rua, where on our left appears the Church of San Pelayo (km. 7,1).
A Rúa (km. 7,1).
Practical tips for this stretch: In this section you will find two bars in A Rua, one of them opens quite early. It is a good option to stop for a coffee, since the other is at the end of this stretch, in A Calle, but does not open until much later. Buen Camino!
Leaving behind the temple and a bar, we leave the centre and go down to Vilarino where, 250 metres later, leave the asphalt on the left. We cross the Ponto do Cubo and continue straight for 70 metres and then turn right. We advance along a stretch of grass, climbing a track that passes under the AC-224 road.
After the crossing we enter Outeiro, a hamlet in the parish of San Xulian de Poulo. Just before the Anton Veiras house and bar, we turn left and go through a tunnel of laurel trees.
We continue, going around various meadows and crops, up to a paved track. Through this we cross Blanca and A Senra (km. 11). Ten minutes of travelling takes us to A Calle (km. 11.8).
A Calle (km. 11,8).
Practical tips for this stretch: At the end of this section, you will face a long forest track of more than 5 kilometres. The tour becomes a little monotonous but it is the last big effort for today. Buen Camino!
At the exit of this centre, we cross the DP-3802 road and immediately reach Carballo, a hamlet in the parish of Santa Olalla de Pereira. A kilometre later, in the village of Casanova, we leave the track on a path that starts from on the left. After several crossings, we go onto a small road over the Pereira Bridge, which we continue towards the left (km. 14.5).
Two hundred metres after the bridge, we take the track on the right. After several crosses and a stream, we arrive at the parish of Santa Cruz de Montaos, specifically to the place of Carras.
We cross the track and continue straight ahead along a leafy path that leads to a pleasant path. We cross another paved track and arrive at Baxoia (km. 17.4), in the parish of Santa Maria de Deixebre in the Council of Oroso. We cross a rural road and pass under the AP-9 motorway. 650 metres later, we make a 90 degree turn.
On an infinite straight that runs parallel to the motorway, separated by a row of trees, we arrive, almost an hour later, to the Sigueiro industrial estate (km. 22.8). After this and through a wooded park, we enter the centre of the town of Sigueiro (km. 24.8).
Sigüeiro (km. 24,8). End of stage
Practical tips for this stretch: Enjoy the tranquillity during this afternoon, tomorrow we will arrive in Santiago de Compostela and many things await you, and a long list of places to visit. See you tomorrow!
Sigueiro is a small town that does not offer much appeal to its visitors, but is great as the stage ending for the day before arrival in Santiago de Compostela.
Some pilgrims will decide to complete the journey to the city of the apostle in one single stage, thus travelling just over 40 kilometres. We do not recommend it, and we prefer to complete the Camino Ingles arriving in Santiago de Compostela full of energy.

The municipality of Sigueiro is a small municipality of just over 2,500 inhabitants. Given the proximity of the urban centre with the city of Santiago de Compostela, it is included in its metropolitan area. In its streets you can visit a medieval bridge, which runs over the River Tambre.
This medieval bridge that crosses the River Tambre in Sigueiro dates back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Its construction is mainly made of stone and its structure consists of six arches. In the 20th century it underwent a major renovation. Its road has been expanded with concrete beams to support the weight of the vehicles that pass over it.
