he next stage of 13.5 km is quite demanding because it is a winding route with many slopes and climbs, which increases its difficulty, so it is not a bad idea to do the Slow Camino Inglés to make it more bearable.

Camino Inglés through hostels

As soon as you leave the town of Betanzos by the Bridge of As Cascas over the river Mendo, a survivor of the war against Napoleon's soldiers, the first climb begins among trees of various species. Later, the route takes us on the A-6 high Camino inland through the the Coruña province. As we pass Limiñón, we will enter the municipality of Abegondo where mountains, forests and various rural churches such as the church of San Estevo in Cos or the church of Santiago a little further on can be found en route.

After several rural roads, you will reach the parish of Presedo when you cross the Fontao bridge. In Presedo there is a pilgrims' hostel in case we need to rest.
