With the new signaling of the Camino de Santiago, especially the French Way, the regional government withdrew lot of old signs that probably were less clear and confusing. However, between signaling withdrawing large and heavy kilometric ancient cairns, placed in 1986 by the Council of Lugo were. Their withdrawal was quite controversial, as many pilgrims were already considered a tradition of the Camino and even have come to promote proposals for return on platforms like change.org.

However, one of the biggest mysteries that kept the regional government with respect to these ancient cairns, was its location after being removed and changed by the new signals. The mystery has been revealed: about 200 of these markers are stored in a farm of the council at the site of Begonte. They were designed at the time by Antonio González Trigo and placed in more than 90 kilometers of the French Way in Lugo - were later copied by the Delegation of Coruña.

Tampoco era necesario haberlos quitado en un principio, creo que podrían haber coexistido con la nueva señalización para mantener el encanto del camino.

Opino lo mismo que David, podría coexistir con las nuevas señalizaciones.

Pues no estaría mal que, en lugar de haberlos quitado, hubieran puesto la señalización nueva junto a ellos. Pero bueno, ahora igual ponerlos de nuevo es un gasto innecesario, además de que no estamos hablando de figuras de hace 500 años...
