ITINERARY

camino de santiago the way tours008

The town of Sarria, in the province of Lugo, is for many the starting point of the French Way or Camino Francés, as this town marks the 100 kilometers needed to attain the Compostela certificate. Once you arrive , we recommend that you visit the town center where you can discover churches, chapels, monasteries and pilgrim hospitals that will connect you from your first day with the essence of the Camino de Santiago. Sarria is a busy, modern town with plenty of shops, hotels, restaurants and bars. Rua Maior has a picturesque atmosphere where we suggest you enjoy a good coffee during the afternoon. If you follow the Camino route to the top end of town you will see the ancient convent Monasterio de Magdalena, the ruins of the castle and the medieval bridge Ponte Aspera.

Accommodation: Standard or Superior

Meals: Breakfast

Today is the first day and the first stage for lots of pilgrims that have chosen Sarria as their starting point. To exit you have to cross the bridge of A Áspera and walk parallel to the railway tracks for 1 kilometre towards Barbadelo, up the most difficult hill of the day.

It will be a lovely walk separate from the road. You will go through Sarria, Paradela and Portomarín and you will cross many rivers through its medieval bridges. It is an easy stage with lots of establishments.

Accommodation: Standard or Superior

Meals: Breakfast

Once you leave the beautiful town of Portomarin, the Camino de Santiago crosses the River Mino and you will begin the ascent towards the Serra de Ligonde. You will pass through charming little villages such as Gonzar and Ventas de Narón. You will also see lots of Romanesque churches and also the Cruceiro dos Lameiros stone cross and the Yacimiento de Castromaior site. All these things will make this stage more entertaining. It is an easy stage but sometimes you will have to walk up some slopes that could be a little bit hard.

Accommodation: Standard or Superior

Meals: Breakfast

On this journey the Camino de Santiago will start descending and take you along beautiful rural trails to Coto. You will continue uphill and downhill through beautiful places such as those found by the River Iso, in Ribadiso.

This is the longest stage you will have to walk in the Galician Territory. 

This is a tough and irregular stage. We will find short recurrent slopes that will demand our effort.The landscapes will combine sections with a good state of preservation as we cross nice villages with non gratifying views from some industrial areas.

Accommodation: Standard or Superior

Meals: Breakfast

The majority of today’s walk to O Pedrouzo is through wonderful pine and eucalyptus scented woodland. You will start walking downhill and then pass through beautiful forests, quiet villages and cross several streams throughout the day.

The path is clearly signposted and abounds in restaurants and services for pilgrims. The small villages of Calle and Salceda mark the midpoint for the day’s journey. 

Accommodation: Standard or Superior

Meals: Breakfast

Almost there! The last phase of the Camino Francés begins in Pedrouzo and heads towards Santo Antón, on a hill ascent to A Lavacolla.

The route passes through eucalypt forests with most of the route on quiet roads and pathways before the final kilometres and a climb to Mount Gozo before descending into the suburbs of Santiago. The path runs alongside the airport and you will see many crosses of twigs and branches used by pilgrims to decorate the fence.

Accommodation: Standard or Superior
