Here, we can enjoy the famous Tarta de Santiago, known to be the best pastry in the region.

Day 4


This is the most challenging part of the route in terms of distance and short ascents. However, the places we'll pass through are unforgettable: the 12th-century Church of San Julian, dense forests, and medieval bridges create a magical atmosphere that makes the effort worthwhile.
