We continue our Favourite Camino series sharing by the CaminoWays.com team with Richard from our Travel Specialist and Customers Care team. His chosen favourite spot on the Camino de Santiago is Ribadiso, a tiny and idyllic hamlet by a medieval bridge located between Palas de Rei and Arzua on the last section of the French Way. Richard explains why pretty Ribadiso is his favourite place on the Camino de Santiago:
Hi this is Richard from CaminoWays.com. My favourite place on the Camino de Santiago has to be Ribadiso on the French Way. As you approach the town of Arzua you will walk downhill to a small valley. It is here that you cross a bridge over a beautiful stream surrounded by enchanting woodlands. This place is called Ribadiso. Here you will find pilgrims and locals alike washing their feet and swimming in the stream while enjoying the beautiful sunshine. This stream seems to be a favourite spot for local children to play and elderly to sit and watch the world go by. It is really a special part of the way and if you have time a great place to take a short break before continuing uphill to Arzua.
