O Pino is the Galician municipality which has more kilometres of the French Way, specifically 18, which run thousands of pilgrims annually. The route passes through five parishes in the municipality: San Verísimo de Ferreiros, San Miguel de Cerceda, Arca, San Miguel de Pereira and Castrofeito.

With Arzúa behind walker, begins the tour in this council for the parish of San Verísimo de Ferreiros. The Way goes playing with multiple places and unique beauty prints, stained green in its wide colour gamut and earth tones. The Way passes through places of Calzada, Calle and Boavista.

As it moves along the Way, hidden among the vegetation, are details that make reference to the cult of St. James. The mythical heaps of stones, the lone pair of bronze sports that recall the figure of Guillerme Watt, Belgian Pilgrim who died as soon as he came to Compostela, or even the passage of other walkers with small natural altars improvised in a natural rack. Together with them, the vagaries of nature as a tree that is located near a source and presents the same holes on both sides.

From San Verísimo de Ferreiros, the Way maintains a constant zigzag with the current layout of the national 547. Step after step, the walker reaches the core of Salceda, where again there are panoramic conjugated vegetables in a harmonious way with constructions that are distributed in this area of the city.

Towards the Xen, 400 metres of height, repeatedly crosses the road to begin a descent that leads to the parish of San Miguel de Cerceda, and after a small break in a curious area to the left with the Way of Compostela, reach O Empalme.

The Way continues to Santa Irene, where is located the chapel which bears the same name, accompanied by a fountain with water supposedly healing. According to a legend, in this place was sacrificed the santa that gives its name to the enclave. The chapel is a simple religious building, which houses inside an interesting altarpiece and several images, among others, the St. Peter and St. Irene. Dating back to the Middle Ages and was made possible by the donation of a couple of noblemen who lived nearby, in the known formerly as Two Houses Village, today also one of the points through which passes the French Way. In the lower part of the chapel is the mentioned source, where there was once a beautiful image of Santa Irene, which was stolen.
Leaving behind the temple, crossing an old road, is a stunning oak wood, setting each June 29 of a massive pilgrimage of San Pedro.

Back to the Way, and also in Santa Irene, beside the national 547, is the first of the pilgrim hostels in O Pino. It is located in a building that in his time made the functions of Council.
It has a careful rest area nearby for pilgrims who walk through these lands. Continuing the route, it passes in front of a sawmill and after it continues in beautiful natural paths, will reach A Rúa, where a historical source is located. This nucleus dates back to the Middle Ages and the second chronicles, hosted make centuries a property that was, at times, hospital for pilgrims and rudimentary shelter.

There are two options for the Pilgrim: one, walk a few meters above the road and rest in the public hostel of Arca; or two, go straight from O Burgo, which name is the place where walker, to follow the route. The public hostel, opened in 1993, holds more than one hundred people. It has kitchen, living room with fireplace, laundry, stables and a nice porch with capacity for more than one hundred people.

The Pilgrim Way from O Burgo is delimited by trees and shrubs. Green line into the Public College of Camino de Santiago and that continues, steps later, in another forest where, according to the story, there were several “castros”. They are enclaves resembling somewhat the already seen in San Verísimo or Santa Irene (except that on this occasion we go toward the nucleus known as Antón).

At this point existed, centuries ago, a chapel which was destroyed by a fire, and from which it takes its name of the village, which also belongs to Arca. We continue until reach San Miguel de Pereira, at Amenal and the tour continues by Cimadevila to Lavacolla Airport that delimits the end of O Pino and the home of such lands.
