Pedrouzo Information

Pedrouzo ©Panoramio Mike LerchMain Connections

The council of O Pino, situated at 18 kilometres from Santiago, is the last location on the N-547 before the arrival to Compostela. This road is therefore the main connection to and from the enclave. For those needing to make a stop or return to their place of origin, the easiest option is travel to Santiago and continue the journey from there.

To do this there are a number of bus lines that stop in Pedrouzo, O Pino and compostela. One of these is the company Autobuses Freire (phone: +34 982220300), with numerous services throughout the day, although with less frequency at the weekends. Consult timetables on the website. The journey to Santiago takes 20 minutes. In the case that hikers need to plan the route from Lugo, this line connects from the council of O Pino to Lugo.

The journey takes approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes. The bus stops are located on Avenida de Santiago. Groups of pilgrims wanting to reach Santiago have the option of hiring a bus with the company Autocares Salvado S.A (phone: +34 981690990) based in Marquiño. Hire of the bus for transport to Santiago costs 150 euros.

Taxis and backpack transport

Correos offers a delivery backpacks service so you can walk without loads and enjoy the routes and stages. You can also purchase a packaging and shipment of bicycles service. The price is 42,03 euros (VAT included, shipping to mainland Spain). This is available in all offices.

In Pedrouzo there is only one licensed taxi, it is managed by Cruz Miras (phone: 669945381). It offers 24-hour service with reasonable prices for pilgrims. Prices range between 20 euros and, 24 euros from midnight onwards. The car can only carry one bicycle. For an emergency there are two other taxis in the council, although they are not situated in the centre of Pedrouzo.

They are managed by Alfonso Garcia (in Castrofeito; phone: +34 678817910) and Baldomero Garcia (in Ferreiros; phone: +34 699417326). For the transfer of backpacks, pilgrims have one option from Pedrouzo, the company Mochila Expres (phone: +34 627435778 | +34 666377155| transmochilavillanueva@gmail.com) offers this service for 3 euros in summer and 5 euros in winter.

Given that Santiago is the end goal, backpacks can be delivered and collected from the hostel or hotel where walkers have a reservation, or in the case that they are leaving the same day, they can designate a bar or another destination point where they can collect their luggage.

Camino on horseback

Equestrian pilgrims staying overnight in Arzúa can leave their horses in the albergue with stables. Another option is the guesthouse Casal de Calma, situated close to the parish church. This establishment, a restored Galician farmhouse from the XIX century, is dedicated to rearing pigs but also has installations to house horses.

Camino by bycicle

Despite Pedrouzo not having a specific bike shop, pilgrims travelling on two wheels have the option of going to the repair shop Minás, situated on Avenida de Santiago, number 26 (phone: +34 981511188). Although it deals predominantly with car repairs it may also be of use to cyclists. The shop opens from Monday to Friday, from 09.30 to 13.30 hours.

El Camino Francés termina en Melide, donde se une al Camino Primitivo. Por tanto, O Pino no tiene ni un metro en el Camino Francés, obviamente. Los tiene todos en el más antiguo Camino Primitivo.

Si el Primitivo es el más antiguo, quiere decir que antes de que llegara el “Francés” a Melide ya se iba a Santiago desde dicha población. Por lo tanto, cuando el “Francés” llega a Melide, termina, porque se une a uno preexistente, el Primitivo.

Es correcto el primitivo como su nombre indica es el primero... aunque no tenga el tirón del francés pero es correcto
