Check in Ferrol

Arrival in Ferrol, starting point of the English Way.

Ferrol – Pontedeume (30 km)

The first stage is the longest, so it is possible to divide it in two and stay in Neda. We recommend a visit to the port of Ferrol before starting the route, as it is one of the most emblematic of Galicia. On the other hand, already on the Camino, we recommend a stop at the Monastery of San Martiño de Neda.

Pontedeume – Betanzos (21 km)

This is a coastal stretch, with very pleasant views. Before reaching Betanzos, we recommend a stop at the Church of San Pantaleón de las Viñas, one of the most iconic points of the English Way.

Betanzos – Bruma-Mesón do Vento (28 km)

This is a quiet stage, through rural areas. Some sections run parallel to the river. The road combines asphalted areas with forest tracks.

Bruma-Mesón do Vento – Sigüeiro (24 km)

The route will take us through small rural areas, leaving behind chapels and crosses.

Sigüeiro – Santiago (16 km)

The last stage is the shortest, only 12 km. This will allow us to reach Santiago with enough time to enjoy the city. From Sigüeiro you can already feel the presence of the capital in the distance. Once in Santiago, do not forget to go to the Pilgrim’s Office with your Credential to request the Compostela.

Santiago - Negreira (21 km)

The first stage of this trail has little difficulty. On your way to Negreira, you will walk through pine and eucalyptus forests, small villages and Roman bridges.

Negreira – Santa Mariña (20 km)

You will walk around Serra de Castelo and Monte do Aro, amazing landscapes to photograph

Santa Mariña – O Logoso (16 km)

This is the most special stage. Why? Because of the sea view in the distance, for the first time!

O Logoso – Cee (18 km)

The stage goes all over rural areas until Cee, one of the fishing villages of the Coast of the Death.

Cee – Finisterre (15 km)

The Camino in this stage takes you along the Atlantic coast while enjoying the high cliffs that give its name to its coast, the wild beaches and the incredible views it offers. What to do when you get to Finisterre? Undoubtedly, visit the Lighthouse, where it is considered the End of the World. Enjoying the sunset with the views it offers is the greatest pleasure of all this Camino!
