Last year I took the right option from Ourense to Cea. This year the left. The left fork seems easy enough for the first hour, but then! About 3 km of 20% grade, and a good bit of uphill after that.
Galicia is a totally different climate than what we've been in. Palm trees, blooming tropical flowers, and parasitic vines everywhere. Very humid.
We had no shortage of company on the trail or in the albergue. There are plenty of 100 km pilgrims on this stretch.
Here are a few pictures.
