Getting to Cebreiro


New Member
My husband and I are looking to begin our camino in O Cebreiro, but are having difficulty getting there. We are staying in Lugo with family and are not sure of the best way to get to O Cebreiro. Can anyone offer advice?

Hi Eva, we spoke after your camino in 06 before my wife and I walked. We took the bus from Lugo to Piedrafita and walked the road up to Cebriero. It is a pleasant walk and there is a roadside park with picnic tables for a stop and snack. I hope you have some comfortable shoes and don't try to do too much this time. I am envious of your opportunity to go again. Have a great camino. John

Hello Eva,

Another option is, just beginning walking in Lugo the Camino Primitivo. There's three different ways:

- To Palas de Rey
- To Mellide
- To Sobrado, in the Camino del Norte.

José Antonio, the hospitalero in the albergue of Lugo, will explain you all what you need about the best way to get any of these routes. He is a very kind man.

The albergue in Lugo is a very nice one, very close the Puerta de San Pedro inside the roman Wall of the city.

Buen Camino,

Javier Martin
