Description

The tiny hamlet of O Cebreiro is a highly symbolic location on the main pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, the Camino Francés (French Way).

The entry point into Galicia, and the end of a long, hard stage for pilgrims on the Camino, its carefully conserved local architecture and the sanctuary of Santa María a Real make O Cebreiro a very special place.

At the summit of O Cebreiro, looking back towards Leon, walkers have a stunning panoramic view of the villages they have passed through, such as La Laguna, and other tiny hamlets, such as Cernada. The greens of the fields mingle with the ochres of the trees in a pleasant, self-contained valley.
