Camino Primitivo > Oviedo-Santiago de Compostela > A Fonsagrada-O Cádavo (23,4 Km)

The stage between A Fonsagrada and O Cádavo runs through forest trails with the beautiful mountain landscapes of the province of Lugo. We will pass through small villages with its ancient "pallozas" and with no very many services for pilgrims with the exception of the bar in Paradavella. We will also see the Hospital of Montouto, which was the last hospital active for pilgrims. In the last part of this stage, we will have to overcame the rather hard ascent to A Lastra and Alto de Fontaneira before reaching O Cádavo; the end for today and with all services available for walkers.
