The period of the North Way in Lugo starts in Ribadeo, which is the capital of A Mariña Oriental. To this municipality one can access from the asturian village of Figueras, crossing the Os Santos bridge, which covers the beautiful Ribadeo sea inlet. This city will leave a mark to the pilgrim due to its beauty. Apart from its picturesque stone streets, where one can taste the excellent seafood and fish from the Cantabrian Sea in different gastronomicals establishments, it also counts on a valuable architectural heritage that we recommend to visit, starting by España square, where the town hall building is erected, a neoclassical small palace of the XVIII century that was the house of the Sargadelos marchess. Next to it, the tower of the Moreno is found, with a modernist style. In this same square, Santa Clara convent is also seen, which was founded in the XV century. It still preserves parts of the primitive building and a cloister of the XVI century. The visit to Ribadeo must be completed with the A Atalaia Chapel (XIII century), the ancient loading bay, the port area, the Pancha island with its symbolic lighthouse and the sandy areas of Os Castros, As illas.. and of course, As Catedrais, one of the most touristic points of Galicia per excellence due to its amazing rocky formations that the sea has been done after years.
The traveller says goodbye to the municipal capital and goes towards A Ponte de Arante, leaving behind places like Ove or Santa Cruz. In A Ponte, a rising section is initially found in order to get into Barreiros, another town council of the coast of Lugo, which is also famous for its good cuisine and its beautiful beaches of white soft sand such as Arealonga’s, As Pasadas’ or Reinante’s. In this municipal section, we cross places as for example Vilamartín Pequeno and Vilamartín Grande, Gondar, Pedrido and Cerveiro to reach San Xusto de Cabarcos, the last point of Barreiros.
