On the stage to Palas de Rei we meet a single larger town, Melide. It is recommended to visit Santa Maria de Mellid with its famous murals. The 14th century Monasterio / Hospital de Sancti Spiritus is also a historical record. The stage location Palas de Rei means «royal palace», but that there has never been a building there.
