O Cebreiro on the Camino

O Cebreiro is a tiny village two hours away. It’s a popular starting point for the Camino de Santiago. From O Cebreiro, it’s a 7-day walk to reach Santiago de Compostela. This timeframe is long enough for you to feel like you’ve truly experienced the Camino, but short enough in case you can’t get away for longer than a week.

When you come into town, you’ll see an official Camino marker. From here there are only 151 kilometers to go before you reach Santiago!

There are a few shops, cafes, and hotels:
