Once the bridge is crossed, it is necessary to follow the railway lines for approximately 1 km. We then cross the railway line in order to climb the hardest hill of the stage and then go along a flat route to Barbadelo, where the Church of Santiago can be visited.
An alternative route straight to Ferreiros bypassing Barbadelo.
The Camino continues towards Rente along a roadway in a very good state, passing Mercado da Serra, Leimán and Peruscallo, where an area of streams begins and where there are stone sidewalks and paths in order to avoid getting wet.
Once past Lavandeira, Casais, A Brea and Morgade, there is a hard climb to Ferreiros, the first town of the Ribeira Sacra of Lugo.
