Information

Situated at 1,300 meters in altitude and in exceptional surroundings, O Cebreiro is undoubtedly an obligatory stop on the French Way. In this enclave, which belongs to the municipality of Pedrafita do Cebreiro the route passes through, on a difficult but beautiful climb to Galician terrain

If pilgrims come here in winter they should be prepared to face the harsh climate, with constant snowfalls and ice. In summer, however, the main problem encountered by pilgrims is the excess of tourists, especially given that it is a very popular end of stage for walkers.

O Cebreiro has one of the busiest public albergues on the route as well as various catering establishments. However, in times of greater affluence, there can be an insufficient number of beds, thus, forcing walkers to look for alternative accommodation. The months of May, June and September are the most ideal times to visit and enjoy this place of great tradition and mythic and symbolic weight that keeps the memory of Elijah Valiña, a local priest and key figure in the renaissance of contemporary pilgrimages.
