near Arcos, Galicia (España)

After a breakfast and a nice chat at the lovely albergue A Pocina de Muniz in Vilar de Cas, we continued our way to Lugo. Just after the village, there was a small detour that I took to Soutomerille, to visit an abandoned church. It was a lovely path through the woods with ancient trees. The rest of the way was rather flat, through farmland and small villages where the time has seem to stand still. The people are all very nice here and great me and ask me where I am from.

With about 3 km to go, I could see Lugo in a distance, and the last km's led through the (nice) outskirts of the city towards the city center. Lugo is the oldest city of Galicia, and it has a stone wall of more than 2 km in perimeter, which is the only intact Roman wall surrounding a whole city still existing. Hence, it is declared a World Heritage Site. Tomorrow, we take an extra day here to explore the city and dive into its history!
