Stone granaries, Horreos, are a feature of most villages in western Galicia. Further east the granaries are square and made of wood, but here they are made of granite and only a few feet wide.
It’s a day of an animal encounters: sweet and noble dogs, calves (lots of intensive dairy here) and an amazing baby Hare- which hopped around in the middle of the track until other pilgrims noticed that we had to take a sudden turn left!
After a long uphill walk I’m on granite uplands and notices explain I’m walking past Neolithic burial mounds.. . but perhaps they are very eroded because I couldn’t see them!
The Albegue Hórreo is very nice; clean and well planned. Each bunk has a light, curtain and a phone charging plug. An excellent menu del día for €10 complete with half a bottle of red wine. I sup with an Irish woman and Belgian man who has been walking the Camino for years and has tales to tell.
