Check in Ourense

The city of Ourense will be the start of your adventure. Ourense is a city with a strong roman past. Use your free time to visit San Martiño Cathedral and As Burgas, natural thermal fountains in the city center or relax at the termas, natural hot water springs.

Ourense - Cea (22 km)

Today is the start of your adventure! As you leave Ourense, the cobbled streets will give way to rural roads. Your first stop, Cea, is famous for its artisanal bread, so don’t leave without trying it!

Cea - Dozón (16 km)

This is a rural stretch. On your way, you will leave behind several small villages, churches and cruceiros, the typical landscape of rural Galicia!

Dozón - Lalín (21 km)

The walk from Dozón will be another rural stretch where you will walk by oak forests. Lalín is know for its gastronomy, so try is renowned cocido!

Lalín - Silleda (16 km)

This stretch is quite similar to the last one. Once again, you will follow rural roads and walk past churches, cruceiros and small villages.

Silleda - Ponte Ulla (20 km)

This stretch will bring you to A Coruña province. The walk will be an easy one, except for the last descent towards Ponte Ulla. But we think it will be worth it because of the incredible views! We recommend to stop at Dornelas and visit its romanesque style church.

Ponte Ulla - Santiago de Compostela (20 km)

Finally, the last 20 km to Santiago! This final day will start with an easy walk that will take you to the end of your journey. Once in Santiago, don’t forget to visit the Pilgrim’s Office and get your Compostela!
