  • Day 1


    Night at Sarria

    Once you arrive in Sarria, we recommend that you take a stroll around the village and gaze upon its monuments and streets, where you can start soaking up the atmosphere of the Camino. This picturesque village has historical landmarks that are well worth exploring, such as the Monastery of the Magdalena and the Castle.

    You can also relax in Chanto Park, or have a coffee in the village centre.

  • Day 2

    From Sarria to Portomarín

    Night at Portomarín

    22,2 km

    5 horas

    Your Camino will begin with this stretch that runs alongside peaceful paths between centuries-old oak trees and historic granaries. The village of Portomarín is located on the banks of the Minho River and has lovely monuments worth visiting such as the Church of San Nicolás, renowned for having had to be moved to another location when its original site was flooded after the construction of the Belesar reservoir.

  • Day 3

    From Portomarín to Palas de Rei

    Night at Palas de Rei

    24,8 km

    6 horas

    After leaving Portomarín behind, the Camino starts to climb as you ascend the Serra de Ligonde. You can visit the villages of Gonzar and Castromaior, where the beautiful Romanesque Church of Santa María is located. You will then continue downhill to Palas de Rei, site of the famous Pambre Castle, a well-preserved 14th century fortress that will transport you to a dream-like world.

  • Day 4

    Fron Palas de Rei to Melide

    Night at Melide

    14,4 km

    3 horas

    On this route the longest stage is split into two different parts.

    Once you leave Palas de Rei, the path starts to climb along beautiful trails until you reach Melide. Here you will find the famous octopus 'á feira' (boiled in copper cauldrons with potatoes and sweet paprika), which we highly recommend.

  • Day 5

    From Melide to Arzúa

    Night at Arzúa

    14,1 km

    3 horas

    Due to the very few kilometres between you and your next stop, you can enjoy some of the charming villages along the Camino, such as Boente and Castañeda, until you reach Arzúa.

    This town, famous for its cheese, gives its name to the designation of origin "Arzúa Ulloa".

  • Day 6

    From Arzúa to O Pino

    Night at O Pino

    17,7 km

    4 horas

    This stage of the route begins with a descent that runs through magical forests and streams that create an idyllic landscape. This is quite an easy section, so you may like to take the opportunity to visit the Chapel of Santa Irene and the Church of Santa Eulalia de O Pedrouzo.

  • Day 7

    From O Pino to Santiago De Compostela

    Night at Santiago de Compostela

    22 km

    5 horas

    When you leave O Pino, you will head towards the end of your journey via Lavacolla. You will then journey to Monte do Gozo, where you will be able to glimpse the towers of the cathedral on the horizon. You will arrive in Santiago through the neighbourhood of San Lázaro, winding down towards the historic city centre, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, until you reach Plaza Obradoiro, where you will finally see the Cathedral of Santiago from up close. If you like and managed to get an early start, you can attend the pilgrim's mass, celebrated at 12 noon.

Ana Isabel

"Los alojamientos todos muy bien ubicados para el camino, cómodos, confortables y limpios. Los desayunos algunos excepcionales como en Sarria y Palas de Rei, otros correctos Portomarin y Arzúa y Santiago y el peor en Pedrouzo , que el establecimiento estaba alejado del alojamiento y el zumo no era natural y menos variedad."


"Ha sido una experiencia muy bonita y el que esté todo tan bien organizado y no tener que preocuparte de hacer reservar en hoteles o restaurantes te da mucha tranquilidad y te hace disfrutar mucho más de todo. Muchas gracias."


"La atención recibida ha sido perfecta. Encantada con los alojamientos y servicios, todo muy bien organizado. Ha sido una experiencia inolvidable, me decidí a realizar el camino sola y vuestro apoyo ha sido fundamental. Como mejora creo que seria positivo un reparto mas equitativo de las etapas."


"Encantada de haberlo organizado todo con tu buen camino, los alojamientos preciosos y las maletas siempre en los alojamientos al llegar,son muy resolutivos a la hora de resolver cualquier problema o duda,repetiremos."
