Itinerary

Day 1

Sarria is the starting point of this adventure, the beginning of the last section of the French Way.

Day 2: Sarria – Portomarín (22 km)

First walking of the last 100 km of the French Way: pilgrims walking this route will discover religious constructions such as Romanesque churches, small hamlets, and the amazing landscapes of the countryside of Galicia region.

The path will take us to Portomarín, one of the most picturesque villages on the Camino Francés.

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

The walking day from Portomarín to Palas de Rei is divided by the Ligonde Mountains, and the Rivers Miño and Ulloa. There is a combination of paved roads and rural paths.

There are a few examples of Romanesque churches along the way.

Day 4: Palas de Rei – Arzúa (29 km)

The walk from Palas de Rei to Arzúa (29 km) is the longest of the last 100 km of the Camino Francés. For these reason, we offer the possibility of staying overnight in Melide.

Melide also a very popular spot on the Camino, all pilgrims who stay there try the delicious octopus. It is said to be the best of Galicia region!

If you continue to Arzúa, we strongly recommend you to buy some cheese, it is delicious!

Day 5: Arzúa – Pedrouzo (20 km)

There are almost 40 km from Arzúa to Santiago, that is why it seems more logical to break up the stretch in two, and stay in O Pedrouzo (or Rúa, Amenal or Lavacolla).

The walking day from Arzúa to O Pedrouzo is quite comfortable, through unpaved paths, and easy ups and downs. Most of the time, close to the Road N-547.

Entre Arzúa y la catedral de Santiago median casi 40 kilómetros y lo más lógico y prudente es dividir el tramo en dos jornadas haciendo parada y fonda en Santa Irene u O Pedrouzo. El Concello de Arzúa cede el testigo al de O Pino en un trayecto cómodo, con pendientes más fáciles y por pistas siempre cercanas a la N-547.

Day 6: Pedrouzo – Santiago (20 km)

The leg from O Pedrouzo to Santiago de Compostela is the last one of the French Way. It is quite peaceful, through unpaved rural paths, oak & eucalyptus woods.

Once at the Airport (Lavacolla) pilgrims will approach the outskirts of Santiago de Compostela.

The highlight of the walk? Monte do Gozo.

From this point the landscape will become more urban, as we approach our final destination: the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

Day 7:

Check Out Santiago.
