Overview

This beautiful section begins in the Templar city of Béjar, in the region of Béjar, Spain, an area known for wine cultivation and cheese production. It passes through picturesque medieval towns and enters the province of Galicia in the village of O Cebreiro, situated at an altitude of 1300 meters.

In O Cebreiro, you can visit the significant church of Santa María Real, which preserves the Holy Grail of the Galicia region to this day, along with the stone houses that characterize the village. The remains of Don Elías Valiña, the Spanish priest who invented the yellow arrow, are also located in this church.

The trail traverses the regions of Béjar and Galicia, offering a beautiful combination of medieval towns and the green landscapes of Galicia.
