Services

The Benedictine Monastery of San Salvador is the most important building in town, and has been for over a thousand years. The entrance is about 3€ and is a worthwhile way to spend the afternoon. Around back is an ornate palomar (dovecote).

Fiesta:

Last Sunday of August.

History:

The founding of Lourenzá is tied to the founding of the Monastery of San Salvador in the end of the 10th century.

The Road:

There are no services between here and Mondoñedo. From the municipal albergue, the camino leaves town along a well marked but narrow and cobbled path uphill. The path climbs to the top of this monte and joins the N-634 as it passes through the hamlet of Arroxo (just a few houses). Here it reaches the highest point along this stretch and ahead you can see the elevated A-8. Keep on the N-634 to pass underneath it and downhill to the roundabout junction where you keep to your left and abandon the N-634. A short distance ahead the camino leaves the road for a path on your right. Along it you will pass the Mondoñedo cemetery and the hamlets of San Pedro, O Reguengo, and San Paio before returning to the main road into Mondoñedo.
