French Way in an organised group
The Way from Sarria to Portomarín offers you small rural villages, Romanesque style chapels, and a quiet and peaceful path. After 22 km of route you will arrive at Portomarín, one of the most beautiful villages of this section of the Camino
This stage will start crossing a pine forest, and will take you through a multitude of villages. Of particular note is the Romanesque church of Santa María de Castromaior. The end of the day will take you to the emblematic village of Palas de Rei, one of the most iconic stops on the Camino.
This is the longest stage, 29 km separate Palas de Rei from Arzúa; for this reason, many pilgrims choose to stay in Melide, halfway along the route. Among the main points of interest are the medieval village of Ribadiso before arriving in Arzúa, a favourite of pilgrims. Once in Arzúa we suggest you taste its famous cheese!
This time the Camino will take you through eucalyptus forests, villages and streams. We recommend you visit the Chapel of Santa Irene, an obligatory stop for pilgrims. Sometimes there can be problems with accommodation in Pedrouzo, but don’t worry, we have many options in the area.
nd finally the last day of the Camino has arrived. From Monte do Gozo you can observe from the heights the beautiful city of Santiago de Compostela and its cathedral, your final destination. Many pilgrims stop there minutes before starting the descent, recalling the best moments of an adventure that is about to end. When you arrive in Santiago, don’t forget to ask for your Compostela at the Pilgrim’s Office, stroll around the old town and lie down in the Plaza del Obradoiro. If you still have energy left, we recommend you continue your journey to Muxía, take a look at the Camino Finisterre – Muxía.
Portuguese Way in organised group
The Camino starts in the city of Tui, which marks the border with Portugal. We recommend visiting its Cathedral and the bridge designed by Gustave Eiffel, before heading to O Porriño.
This stage is a little more difficult than the rest because of the ups and downs, but the views of the Atlantic Ocean are worth it. Redondela is a small town that does not have a great offer of accommodation, so in some cases pilgrims continue to Arcade, only 7 km away (this way they walk a little more in this stage and a little less the next day)
This city marks approximately half of the route from Oporto to Santiago de Compostela. Its historic center, characterized by its narrow cobbled streets and Romanesque and Gothic religious buildings such as the Church of the Pilgrim, dedicated to the Virgin of the Pilgrim. A significant figure in the Jacobean culture; the Basilica of Santa María la Mayor; the Plaza de la Leña; or the Museum of Pontevedra and its extensive collection of art and artifacts ranging from prehistory to contemporary art.
You will leave Pontevedra crossing the Puente del Burgo, a medieval bridge that offers a spectacular view of the Lérez River and its surroundings. On the way to Caldas de Reis you can not miss the visit to the Natural Park of the Barosa River, as you pass through the town of Barro. Its mills and waterfalls, deep in the Galician nature, will make you recover all your strength to finish the Camino and visit the tomb of the Apostle.
The Camino runs quietly through small villages, with houses scattered along the route. Padrón is a town known for being the first point of land sighted by the ship that carried the remains of the Apostle Santiago. It is also the birthplace of great writers such as Rosalía de Castro and Camilo José Cela.
The last stage is the longest of this route, so we recommend leaving in good time. As in the previous days, the trail will initially take you through rural areas, but during the last kilometers, as we get into Santiago, the landscape will become more urban. When you arrive in Santiago don’t forget to ask for your Compostela at the Pilgrim’s Office, you will simply have to show your Pilgrim’s Credential.
