Stage 29:Palas deRei-Melide (14,9km)
(1)Palas de Rei-(2)San Xulian do Camiño:0-3,2 km
(2)San Xulian do Camiño-(3)Casanova:3,2-5,6(2,4km)
A continuously hilly stage. We enter the province of A Coruña and in Melide we meet up with the pilgrims doing the Camino Primitivo.
(1)Palas de Rei-(2)San Xulian do Camiño: 0-3.2 km
We leave Palas de Rei (photo 1) crossing a couple of times the N-547 until the arrows lead us to the highway (photo 2) which we follow until the 1.1 km (photo 3). At this point we take right, but after a few metres we return to continue parallel to the highway, and again leave it (photo 4) after a few metres. We advance up a hill through woodland until the 1.9 km (photo 5) where we take a left. We come to the highway but leave it after a few metres along onto a path leading downhill through the forest (photo 6). The path (photos 7, 8 and 9) leads us to San Xulian (photo 10).
(2)San Xulian do Camiño-(3)Casanova: 3.2-5.6(2.4km)
We leave San Xulian passing the Roman church from the twelfth century to our left (photo 11) and a small road leads us the 1.2 km to Pontecampaña (photo 12) and after another 1.2 km to Cassanova (photo 13).
(3)Casanova-(4)Leboreiro: 5.6-9.0(3.4 km)
On this section we enter the province of A Coruña. We leave Cassanova along the small road. At the first crossroads (photo 14) if we take a right, after 1.4 km we will get to Vilar de Remonde, where there is a hostel. We continue straight, along small roads and paths through dense vegetation (photos 15, 16 and 17) until we get close to the N-547 (photo 18) where before we actually get to the highway we take a left (photo 19) which brings us to the small village of Leboreiro (photo 20).
(4)Leboreiro-(5)Melide: 9.0-14.9(5.9 km)
We leave Leboreiro and the path (photos 21, 22, and 23) takes us close to the highway and the industrial estate of Melide (photos 24 and 25). On passing the industrial estate we separate from the national road and find ourselves in a beautiful forest (photo 26) which takes us downhill until the river Furelos, which we cross over a medieval bridge (photo 27). Past the river we enter San Xoan de Furelos and leave along a small road which brings us to the N-547 national road along which we enter into Melide.
