Sarria to Portomarin – 23.9 km/14.2 miles


Hello there! Another nice day for walking through the changing countryside ….rolling land, fields and meadows lined with stone fencing. The villages consist of small dairy farms and it is evident in the air as well as on the trail.

Portomarin – pop. 2000 and located on the Rio Mino. In 1960 the river was dammed and the village had to be relocated. The most historic buildings were moved brick by brick into the new town. The 12th century Romanesque Iglesia de San Nicolas being one of those buildings were each brick was numbered for rebuilding.
