The Route of Father Sarmiento

The Route of Father Sarmiento

The Route of Father Sarmiento (Ruta del Padre Sarmiento in Spanish) will take you into the heart of the region of O Salnés. This trail will allow you to emulate the journey made by Fray Martín Sarmiento in the Holy Year 1745, in his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. In that year, he decided to return from Madrid to his native Galicia, and make a very personal pilgrimage from Pontevedra to Santiago de Compostela, following the coast line.

Along almost 200 km, you will travel through some of the most picturesque fishing villages of Galicia: Combarro, Sanxenxo, O Grove, Vilanova de Aorusa, A Illa de Arousa, Cambados… And don’t forget the diverse landscapes! In fact, you will both walk along white sand beaches, and the areas  of wineries and vineyards, in the heart of Rias Baixas region.

It is a wonderful experience characterized by its diversity, perfect for those who want to enjoy alternative routes to Santiago de Compostela.

At Galiwonders we will take care of all the logistical aspects (accommodation, transfers, meals, walking notes, etc), so that you can enjoy the way without any worries. Read on to discover all the stages of the itinerary.
