A Gudiña

Xunta (44, 10€) Albergue de A Gudiña, follow the main road until you see it on the left opposite a church, Capela do San Martiño. In a new building since 2021. Typical Xunta luxury. Tel 696 820 722 - IMPORTANT NOTE: be careful when setting off from this albergue that you follow the yellow arrows for the Laza route. It is easy to end up on the Verín route if you turn left outside the albergue.

Hotel Bruma II on the main road 600m after the Xunta Albergue, on the left. Singles 39€, doubles 54€, triples 69€. Website hotelbruma.es Tel 676 966 312

A Gudiña has all facilities. Shops, cafés, a pharmacy and banks, all along the main road.

Bar O Peregrino, on the Camino on the left, does good tapas.

Most of the town's restaurants are along the main road about 600m past the Xunta albergue. Café San Francisco, beside the Repsol petrol station on the right, does good food and opens early.

A little further on the left, El Búfalo has a good menú del día and other dishes.
