Crossing from Primitivo to Norte - the Camino Verde from Lugo to Sobrado

Just to let folks know that I have completely updated the resource - José Manuel @xmsg and I walked the route in August and have updated all the directions, and refreshed the green arrows. It was fabulous.

If you are planning the Primitivo and want to stay off the Frances as long as possible, enjoy the tranquility and stunning scenery away from the crowds for a couple of days, and stay with the monks at Sobrado, this option will hopefully appeal.

I walked that area 10 years ago and I found it absolutely beautiful, rural, wild and remote, particularly compared to the Francés. Most recommendable, indeed! It was already very well marked, 10 years ago.

I am going to see about setting up a separate sub-forum on the Primitivo for this alternative. There are lots of posts from people who have enjoyed it a lot, and it would be good to get them all in one place. Stay tuned!
I just messaged Ivar about that very thing
