English Way from A Coruña

Tour Description

Walk the English Way, from A Coruña to Santiago

The English Way receives this name because it used to be the favorite route for those pilgrims coming from England, Ireland and other Northern European countries.

We have already mentioned on other occasions this route from Ferrol, but now we bring you this alternative one from A Coruña. It is not a new way, it originates in the XIII century, when the port of A Coruña was the favorite destination of all pilgrims from Northern Europe.

Check in

Arrival in A Coruña, starting point of the alternative English Way.

A Coruña – Bruma-Mesón do Vento (33 km)

The first stage of this Camino is also the longest. However, the sea breeze will provide us a breath of fresh oxygenated air, helping us to walk through the promenade at the Bay of O Burgo. We highly recommend to discover the historical center of A Coruña. As we start to follow the Camino path, it will become more rural, crossing fields, small villages and even farms. Finally, we will reach the Hospital de Bruma, the next stop on the way.

Bruma-Mesón do Vento – Sigüeiro (24 km)

As a meeting point for the routes from Ferrol and A Coruña, Hospital de Bruma is a famous pilgrim stop on the Camino Inglés. This little town was the only place in this inner way that had a hospital for pilgrims. From Bruma to Sigüeiro,, the path follows rural roads and green areas.

Sigüeiro - Santiago de Compostela (16 km)

Only 16 kilometers away from Santiago, we will cross the bridge over the river Tambre and continue from Sigüeiro to Compostela. After that, we will be able to contemplate the great city from far away. The route is becoming more urban as we reach the capital. Once in Santiago, don’t forget to go to the Pilgrim Office, bringing your credential to obtain the Compostela.
