After walking through small paths and rural areas, the way will take us to one of the most emblematic spots on the French Way: Palas de Rei.

Day 6: Palas de Rei – Melide (14 km)

Some Pilgrims do all the way from Palas de Rei to Arzúa (28 km approx.) and others prefer to stay in Melide, that is in between both places. We recommend this last option, as Melide is a good place to try one of the most renowned dishes in Galicia: octopus.

Day 7: Melide – Arzúa (14 km)

Today we will see one of the most interesting points of the route: Ribadiso, a medieval town just before Arzúa. Once there, we recommend you to try the local cheese, a delicacy!

This is a relaxing walk, through pine forests and rural areas. A Salceda is a small hamlet on the way to O Pedrouzo.

Only 10 km to get from O Pedrouzo to Lavacolla. Today we will walk close to the airport, and we will start to feel Santiago de Compostela on the horizon.

Day 11: Lavacolla – Santiago (10 km)

And today is finally the last walking day of the French Way: from Lavacolla to Santiago de Compostela.

As you will start in Lavacolla (only 10 km far to Santiago) you will have enough time to enjoy all the highlights of the stretch. For example: Monte do Gozo. This place marks a special moment for reflection.
