8: Sobrado - Arzúa

In Carelle we find St Lorenzo Church and then, after passing along Corredoiras, we get to Boimorto, whose history is highly influenced by the nearby convent in Sobrado.
And almost immediately, we get to Arzúa, where the route joins the French and the Primitive Ways. From this junction, there is a unique way to the city of the Apostle, Compostela.

It links with Arzúa-Santiago from “El Camino de Santiago en España”.

7: Miraz - Sobrado

Sobrado dos Monxes

The route passes along small villages, leaves Friol and the province of Lugo and enters A Coruña.

Laguna Sobrado dos Monxes

It goes next to a pool which was the fish farm of the monks of Sobrado a time ago.
The Monastery of Sobrado dos Monxes was founded in 952, closed in 1006 and revived in 1142 during the reign of Alfonso VI as the first monastery of the Cistercian Order in Spain.

North Route

road from the north to compostelaWe are starting the North Way to Santiago de Compostela, older than the French Way. Those who came from Europe through the Cantabrian coast and arrived in the north of the Iberian Peninsula came to the Western capital this way.

The first pilgrimages came from Asturias about the 10th century. Pilgrims arrived through the Basque Country and walked round green lands as a promise of the green Galicia of the Apostle. They would pass along Oviedo to honour the Saviour and either followed the Primitive Way on the inside or went on with the Cantabrian Route and the North Way or High Way. In this Way, Ribadeo was the main entrance to Galicia.
