Day 38: Ribadeo to Gondan

View out over the Rio Ribadeo from near the refugio (top)

Familier yellow arrow guiding the pilgrim out of Ribadeo town (right)

It's at Ribadeo that the camino leaves the coast to head inland in a SW direction

A useful local map

A typical Galego storage building similar to those I found in Asturias but with a slightly different design

I was unable to identify the Church

After the long climb away from Ribadeo, this friendly greeting awaited the pilgrim

Views across the valley towards Villamartin and Gondan (top & left)

The stele informs me that I am now just over 175kms from Santiago (below)

Refugio at Gondan

Looking across the valley from the refugio (top & right)

Pleasant picnic area outside the refugio (below)
There had obviously refurbishment done for the Holy Year - matresses still had their plastic covers
