    Discover the Camino de Santiago A Orixe (the Origin) 

    The route known as A Orixe (the Galician word for “the origin”) refers to the beginnings of the Camino de Santiago. Legend has it that the mortal remains of the Apostle St. James arrived in Galicia from Palestine by sea in a stone boat. Once on the Atlantic coast, they entered the interior of Galicia through the Ría de Arousa and the Ulla River. They followed the path that today is known as the Traslatio

    The A Orixe itinerary offers the variant that starts at the Corrubedo Lighthouse. Through its 120 km, you will enter the region of Galicia known as Barbanza, discovering the secrets of the coastal villages of Ribeira, Boiro, A Pobra do Caramiñal, Rianxo… Until Pontecesures, where the route joins the Portuguese Way, continuing along this route until you reach Santiago de Compostela.

    This is a perfect route for those who are looking for the hidden corners of the region of Galicia, small maritime villages, and be impressed by the landscapes and gastronomy of this still unknown area. The perfect choice for pilgrims looking to escape from the more crowded routes, and find small treasures along the way.

    Day 1: Check in Corrubedo

    Arrival at Corrubedo (Ribeira). This coastal village is distinguished by its well-known lighthouse, located at Cape Corrubedo.

    Day 2: Corrubedo - Aguiño (22 km)

    Easy stage from Corrubedo to Aguiño, in the heart of Barbanza. The trail will take us through areas of great attraction, starting with the Corrubedo Lighthouse. We will continue through protected natural areas, such as the Corrubedo dune complex and the Carregal and Vixá lagoons. In addition to views such as those offered by the Mirador de Os Castelos.

    Day 3: Aguiño - A Pobra do Caramiñal (21 km)

    This second stage is also not too hard both in terms of distance and the nature of the terrain. Always accompanied by the pleasant coastal views, we will leave behind Ribeira and Palmeira, to go into A Pobra do Caramiñal (or Puebla del Caramiñal).

    Day 4: A Pobra do Caramiñal – Abanqueiro (23 Km)

    We continue our route through small chapels, pazos, ports and fishing villages. Abanqueiro, in the municipality of Boiro, is a small coastal village that stands out for its beach (Praia de Suigrexa) and the church of San Cristovo de Abanqueiro.

    Day 5: Abanqueiro – Rianxo (23 km)

    The stage from Abanqueiro to Rianxo does not involve great technical difficulties. It will also take us through small coastal villages, churches and “cruceiros”. It is a very maritime path, bordering the coast, which will take us to Rianxo. There, the chapel of the Virgin of Guadalupe and the church of Santa Comba stand out.

    Day 6: Rianxo – Padrón (30 km)

    This day is the longest stage of this route, almost 30 km long. It is advisable to be mentally prepared for a long but rewarding walk. Here we will be able to see the maritime route that gives its name to the route, “A Orixe”, known as the Traslatio.

    Day 7: Padrón – Santiago de Compostela (24 km)

    Final stage, which overlaps fully with the Portuguese Way. From this point we will see how the number of pilgrims increases significantly with respect to the previous days, and even more so as we approach Santiago de Compostela, our final destination.

    Day 8: Check out

    Your last day with us. Before leaving, we recommend you to follow your Camino to Finisterre, known as the end of the world and one of the most beautiful places in Galicia.
