In the parish of San Verísimo de Ferreiros, belonging to the municipality of O Pino, is located southeast of the province of La Coruña. The Way of Saint James passes through it and also crosses the villages of Calle, Boavista and O Castro. These lands were populated from remote times, as evidenced by the archaeological remains found, especially from the time of the castros. The name of many of the villages through which the Jacobean route passes is intrinsically related to it, as is the case of Calle. Very close to this village there was a hospital for pilgrims, that of San Mamede, which depended on the convent of La Magdalena de Arzúa.
In Calle you can appreciate a rural architecture and several hórreos. Leaving the village in the direction of Boavista, between orchards and cornfields, you pass through a passadoiro, a pedestrian bridge that crosses, in the place of Lengüello, the pools made by the stream of Igrexari. Immediately you can see the tower of the parish church of San Verísimo de Ferreiros, reconstructed on the remains of an older one. Boavista begins to notice its proximity to the city of the Apostle, as there are only about 28 kilometers left. Between vegetation and Jacobean details, O Castro is left behind to reach Salceda, which according to 18th century references placed it on the Way, not stretched out on the side of the road. In this area the constructions play harmoniously with the vegetation.
The parish of San Verísimo de Ferreiros celebrates its patron saint, San Verísimo or San Breixo, on the 1st of October, in addition to participating with the rest of the town council in fairs and common festivities.
At the exit of Salceda a small and curious monument, some bronze boots guarded in a niche in a wall, reminds the Belgian pilgrim Guillerme Watt who died here, at the gates of Compostela.
Salceda is located on the N-547 that joins Santiago de Compostela and Lugo and it is on this road where you will find the accesses that lead to Calle, Boavista and O Castro.
Salceda has a metropolitan bus service every day of the week that connects it with nearby towns and Santiago. Also the regular transport service that covers the route Santiago-Lugo every day of the week and in different schedules, has stop in Salceda.
The closest train station to Salceda is Santiago de Compostela.
