Beautiful landscapes surround the Portomarin area, where the Mino river crosses the town. Depending on the water level, the old roman bridge can be viewed below the modern one.

Stage is uphill all the way even if it stops before the highest point in Ligonde. There is a steep slope after Castromaior but other than that, it is fairly easy to walk.
Today we will leave Portomarin behind, as we make our way to Gonzar where we will see the romanesque St Mary's church which is very well conserved. Further on, we will visit the Castro of Castromaior, a series or celtic ruins from pre-roman times. We will stop when we reach Ventas de Naron, with a small chapel that seems to suggest the existence of an old pilgrim's hospital, just before the Sierra de Ligonde.
