Food and water between Lugo and Ferreira

We’re walking from Lugo to Ferreira tomorrow (Sunday) and as far as I can see, we’ll need to take food and water for the whole day. Is this correct? Are there any places to fill our water bottles? I’d appreciate some up-to-date information! Thank you

I stopped at bars in Burgo do San Vicente, and in San Roman da Retorta. The latter was in the private albergue. I suggest not eating there. The salads are pre-prepared and quite dismal. The food and bar at the A Nave Albergue in Ferreira are both good.
Have a great day!

It depends on the day and time you will be there.
On this page you will find a good description ont the facilities on the way. In both albergues in Ferreira you can get sandwiches when you arrive. A Nave is famous for it's paella, albergue Ponte Ferreira has a good vegetarian (and vegan) meal.

Good bar in Burgo de San Vicente. It's maybe 50 meters off the Camino to the right. And, yes, there are food and drinks in the albergue in San Roman de Retorta.

I think that food in O Candido in San Roman da Retorta is not that bad I have been there twice and I liked it.

Thank you all for your replies. We stopped at Burgo da San Vincent. There was also a small taberna further along serving just drinks. We’d brought some food and water with us and so we survived!
