Camino Primitivo > Oviedo-Santiago de Compostela > O Cádavo-Lugo (30,5 Km)

This stage will takes us to Lugo in a continuous going down, but before, we will have to face the last high part of the Camino Primitivo, Alto da Vaqueriza. From there, the descent leads us to Castroverde, with all services necessary for the pilgrim, and then we will walk along many Galician rural villages. We will arrive at Lugo in a very confortable way without making a great effort. We have to go across the river and surround the spectacular Roman wall.
