Day 33 Alto do Poio (~21km)

Passed the 600km mark this morning.

Earlier than alpine start on country roads past more high motorway bridges (see photo). Where the flock they got the money for these i dont know and they appear to only support a few trucks every now and again.

From here on it was up up up through beautiful little paths/roads with switch backs an tunneled with vegetation. Breaky and a coffee stop only and arrived at Alto do Poio by 1pm. This place is situated on a small pass and has two alburgues and that's it. It was nice to sit and knock back a beer and an empanada whilst watching pilgrims gasp their way up the last of the climb. All the time with chickens pecking around our feet.

  1. Hi Marcus, the end is in sight. I am amazed at the diversity of landscapes you're walking through. I'm starting to think Spain may be a great location for a bike ride. All the best Theo
