8th stage Camino Santiago de Levante. The hole of Verín

Posted by admin On Mayo - 28 - 2010

Eighth day: Town of Sanabria – Ourense. 156 kms. 9 hours and 43 minutes.

JL: We  departed from Puebla de Sanabria at 8:00. The day is fresh, clear and sunny allowing us to see the snowed peaks. We are tired but the landscape and the sun are comforting, and it makes us smile. Better, go on! Today we have to reach three superior heights at 1000 meters, one of 895, another of 868, and for the dessert, a high point of 590 meters. The two most difficult climbs are in the first 50 kilometres: 1380 meters, descent and 1170 meters more. We take it easy, we put the “catalina” (name given to the small plate) and “up we go”. At the beginning of the climb, we met the first pilgrims who were leaving Sanabria. It were Raquel and Aníbal of Madrid with whom we spoke for a few minutes. Go on guys, and good travel! Here is a photo of the group.

The most difficult part of the day arrived in Verín, a locality situated in low ground: vertiginous descent to arrive and an incredible climb to get out (and this appears on km. 100, when we have 56 km. more before finishing the stage). We ate in a park before going ahead. Shortly after we restarted, blue palette of “slow – moving car”, which means that we are near an important climb: we have to gather strength, grind our teeth and begin to climb.   We are starting to dislike this traffic sign.

After this climbing remaining path to Ourense was a complete “leg breaker”/ I no longer know how much food, water and fruit we had that day.

Finally we arrived at Ourense at 21:30, had diner and went to bed.
