The English Way is called like this because it used to be the preferred path for those pilgrims coming from Northern Europe, from places like England, Ireland or the Scandinavian countries.
After a long journey, usually by boat, they used to disembark in the port of Ferrol or Coruña, and from there they continued the way to Santiago de Compostela.
Nowadays, those pilgrims that want to qualify for the Compostela (pilgrim certificate) they would need to start in Ferrol, to walk at least 100 km.
It is an alternative route, that we strongly recommend to those pilgrims that want to get away from the crowds and enjoy the peace and quiet.
