Itinerary

Day 1

Check in in Sarria, starting point of the last section of the French Way.

Day 2: Sarria – Portomarín (22 km)

For many pilgrims walking the Camino Francés, this is the first stretch of the route. Sarria is very close to the popular last 100 km of the French Way (the minimum required to walk if you want to get the Pilgrim Certificate once in Santiago de Compostela).

The walk will take us to the regions of Sarria, Paradela and Portomarín. We will walk mostly through rural areas, where we can see Romanesque churches and medieval bridges.

Day 3: Portomarín – Palas de Rei (25 km)

The Camino walk from Portomarín to Palas de Rei passes through small hamlets and pine forests. You will discover the Church of Santa María de Castromayor, on the way.

By the end of the stage you will arrive in Palas de Rei, one of the most iconic towns of the Camino Francés.

Day 4: Palas de Rei – Arzúa (29 km)

The walk from Palas de Rei to Arzúa is one of the most challenging ones (29 km).

Some of the highlights of the day:

-Melide (where we strongly recommend you to taste the octopus)
-Ribadiso: right before arriving in Arzúa
-The local cheese, in Arzúa

Day 5: Arzua – O Pedrouzo (20 km)

The path will take all walker across eucalyptus woods, picturesque hamlets, and small streams. One of the most visited places on the way from Arzúa to O Pedrouzo is Santa Irene Chapel.

Day 6: Pedrouzo – Santiago (20 km)

We have finally reached the last walk of the French Way.

The main highlight of the walk from O Pedrouzo to Santiago are the views from Monte do Gozo (you will see Santiago de Compostela in the horizon, your final destination).

If you still have any energy left when arriving in the city, we strongly recommend to walk around the old quarter, and visit some spots such as La Alameda, the Squares (Obradoiro, Platerías, Quintana, Cervantes), etc.

Day 7:

Check Out Santiago.
