Day 2 Arzua to A Rua18 Km 5-7 Hrs 380 Metres
A day of pleasant and gentle walking, mostly on shaded woodland paths and tracks. The Camino leads you through quaint hamlets and, as the vegetation becomes more Mediterranean, the oak and chestnut woodlands slowly give way to eucalyptus and pine forests and even the occasional palm tree. Stay and relax in the tranquil settlement of A Rua before continuing to Santiago de Compostela tomorrow.
Day 3 A Rua to Santiago de Compostela21 Km 5-7 Hrs 460 Metres
The last day of the Camino brings you again through little villages, woodlands and open country along quiet paths and tracks. Not far from Santiago you pass through the village of Lavacolla, where pilgrims traditionally washed themselves after weeks or months of travelling. The end of the walk leads you through medieval streets in the old town of Santiago de Compostela and past grand squares, fountains, palaces and churches before you arrive at the Praza do Obradoiro and the magnificent Cathedral of Santiago.
