- Year of past OR future Camino
- Except the Francés
Ribadeo's riverside xunta albergue is right on the Ruta do Mar, and the 3 hours to As Catedráis were probably the best coastal walk I've had so far. Low tide at the cathedrals, virtually deserted at this time of year - timed tickets in the summer, I gather. After that it was mostly very dull walking past 100s of dreary villas, almost all on tarmac. And quite bad roadworks near Foz, where I'm staying the night. The compensation was taking a taxi to see San Martín de Mondoñedo, which claims to be the oldest cathedral in Spain (man made, that is, as I suppose As Catedráis can give it a year or two).
