The weather started to clear up as we headed away from Portomarin for our last few days on the Camino.
We headed out through the village of Monterroso before reconnecting with the walking track
It was a short but fresh ride into Plas de Rei. There was enough fog to require a flashing taillight on my helmet when we took to the road alongside the walkers.
We had the afternoon sitting in the sun at the albergue chatting with other pilgrims, both walkers and bikers.
The next day we had another 50 km day into Pedrouzo.
We found a lovely deck at a local restaurant where the menu del dia included a pizza and a beer (wine for Ann)
Then it was away for our last day riding as we headed off on the 20km ride into Santiago de Compostela.
We rode the extra 600 metres up to the pilgrims’ monument at Monte de Gozo where you get the first glimpse of the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. We chatted to a lovely Dutch couple and observed that 100’s of pilgrims just walked by without seeing this spectacular monument and view.
Then it was on to the square in front of the Cathedral for the obligatory photos
We rode 825 km in 20 day with only one puncture.
We then had to return our bikes to a drop-off point in the middle of the old town. As we were pushing our bikes through the street crowded with pilgrims coming into the city, we heard a shout and turned to see two Portuguese twins with who we had shared time at a couple of stops on the way
We agreed to meet that night for drinks and a meal
