Stage 25:O Cebreiro-Triacastela (20,4km)
(2)Liñares-(3)-Hospital da Condesa:2,9-5,5(2,6km)
(3)Hospital da Condesa-(4)Alto do Poio:5,5-8,2(2,7km)
(4)Alto do Poio-(5)Fonfria:8,2-11,4(3,2km)
This stage can be divided into two parts. The first, up until Alto do Poio, is uphill and the second especially after Fonfria is on a steep descent.
(1)O Cebreiro-(2)Liñares: 0-2.9km
We leave O'Cebreiro along a path from the back of the hostel, to the left hand side of the road (photo 1). We go up 100 metres and then back down along a wide path which leads us to Liñares (photo 2), where the path joins with the road.
(2)Liñares-(3)-Hospital da Condesa: 2.9-5.5(2.6km)
We follow the road for a few metres and then take a path which brings us to the peak of San Roque (1271 metres) (photo 3). At the peak there is a bronze sculpture made by the sculptor Acuña which depicts a pilgrim walking against the wind. We then take a path which runs to the right of the road and which will bring us to Hospital de la Condesa (photo 4).
(3)Hospital da Condesa-(4)Alto do Poio: 5.5-8.2(2.7km)
We leave Hospital de la Condesa and take a path which runs parallel to the road until it arrives at a junction where there is a sign for Sabugos which we follow. We arrive at the foot of Padornelo where a tough 200 metre hill awaits us leading to Alto do Poio (photo 5).
(4)Alto do Poio-(5)Fonfria:8.2-11.4(3.2km)
We leave the Alto do Poio and along a path which runs parallel to the road and brings us to Fonfria (photo 6). The way is flat and slightly downhill.
Along a path now descending, more or less parallel to the road but a little further from it, we arrive to Viduedo (photo 7).
We leave Viduedo and begin the the steepest descent of the stage. With spectacular views of the surrounding valleys we come through the small villages of Filloval, Pasantes and Ramil. We continue he descent along beautiful paths (photo 8) crossing the road and continuing along its left hand side. We cross the parish of As Pasantes and follow the descending path to Triacastela.
