Lugo, home to the best preserved Roman wall in Europe, stretching over 2kms wrapped around the old town. Apart from its famous wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lugo is also known for its good food. Many bars in town will serve free ‘pinchos’ when you order a drink.
From Lugo, the Camino Primitivo continues towards Santiago de Compostela across peaceful forests and farmland, following old Roman paved roads and over pretty medieval bridges. This section joins the final stretch of the French Way, the most popular Camino route, in the lively town of Melide.

I'm going, if anyone else is interested let me know. I realize this a little bit "out there", but it looks like a great experience.
