The final stage from Teo begins with a gentle climb through woodlands. As you descend, the way travels long, quiet, bituminised lanes with the city of Santiago de Compostela in sight once you summit the next hill.
You’ll begin today with a steady but not arduous climb, mostly through woodlands, of 160m to a peak of 260m. As you descend, you will see the city of Santiago de Compostela ahead of you on the next hill.
About 4km from the city, you can stay amid greenery for as long as possible or stick with the original Way, which is more built up. The last few km, regardless, are on tarmac roads. But after a long walk, this will be gratifying, given the end is within reach.
Walking: Easy to moderate / 14km or 8.7miles / 3.5 to 5 hrs
Accommodation: Santiago de Compostela, a 3-star country hotel
