Sarria - Morgade (12 km)

From Sarria to Morgade, you will enjoy the most rural side of Galicia region. You will see Romanesque Churches and other nice spots.

Morgade – Portomarín (9 km)

Today you will be able to discover one of the most beautiful towns on the French Way: Portomarín. It’s reservoir has a nice story behind it. Would you like to know it?

The walk will start through pine forests and picturesque hamlets. You will see the church of Santa María de de Castromayor, just after Portomarín.

Ventas de Narón – Palas de Rei (11 km)

After walking through small paths and rural areas, the way will take us to one of the most emblematic spots on the French Way: Palas de Rei.

Palas de Rei – Melide (14 km)

Some Pilgrims do all the way from Palas de Rei to Arzúa (28 km approx.) and others prefer to stay in Melide, that is in between both places. We recommend this last option, as Melide is a good place to try one of the most renowned dishes in Galicia: octopus.

Melide – Arzúa (14 km)

Today we will see one of the most interesting points of the route: Ribadiso, a medieval town just before Arzúa. Once there, we recommend you to try the local cheese, a delicacy!

Arzúa – Salceda (10 km)

This is a relaxing walk, through pine forests and rural areas. A Salceda is a small hamlet on the way to O Pedrouzo.

A Salceda – O Pedrouzo (9 km)

Only 10 km to get from O Pedrouzo to Lavacolla. Today we will walk close to the airport, and we will start to feel Santiago de Compostela on the horizon.

Lavacolla – Santiago (10 km)

And today is finally the last walking day of the French Way: from Lavacolla to Santiago de Compostela. As you will start in Lavacolla (only 10 km far to Santiago) you will have enough time to enjoy all the highlights of the stretch. For example: Monte do Gozo. This place marks a special moment for reflection. What to do once in Santiago? -Visit the Pilgrims’ Office to get the Certificate -Go to the Pilgrim’s Mass at the Cathedral -Visit the Obradoiro Square, the Alameda, and walk around the old quarter of the city.

Hostels and pensions

These accommodations have the necessary services to cover the basic needs of cleanliness and rest at a more moderate price than the hotels . Officially, hostels and guesthouses are 1-star accommodations. However, this rating should not be taken into account when evaluating the level of comfort and quality of their services.

Typical in the large cities along the El Camino. They can be family hotels or international hotel chains. They are perhaps the most expensive alternative, although you can find different price levels according to the category and services they offer.

These are small accommodations characterized by having few rooms and providing personalized attention. They are hotel concepts with a modern style and their own character. They can be between 1* and 5*.

National Paradores of Spain

This is a public hotel chain that manages a network of almost 100 charming hotels distributed throughout the Iberian Peninsula. The establishments are located in buildings of cultural interest and great historical value, and stand out for their scenic, artistic or natural interest (including ancient palaces, monasteries, fortresses, convents, fortresses…).

Rural tourism lodgings

Rural houses, pazos, inns, rectories, castles, monasteries, farmhouses… These are historic buildings of great architectural and patrimonial value. So much so, that this characteristic sometimes gives them the status of “luxury accommodation” despite of the fact that they are often rustic constructions in which natural stone and wood predominate.
