From some postings I can see that some pelegrinos go from Xunqueira de Ambia over to the southern route to Allariz and stay over night there before going to Ourense, instead of staying in XdA and going from there to Ourense. Is Allariz a town worth this? Is the route nicer? Must one follow a road from XdA to Alleriz?
I will start in Zamora next week.

I did this route in 2006. The route is not marked with yellow arrows and I walked along the road. This was only about 8km and impossible to get lost.

Allariz is an old town built on a hillside above a river and is very nice. The old town is a maze of narrow streets and plazas with many old houses. I stayed in the Hostal Alarico which is next to the Policia Municial building. I don't know if there is an albergue there.

In the morning I made my way down to the river and found the yellow arrows after the Old Bridge.

My journal from Zamora to Santiago in 2006 is here ... eca00.html

Good luck
