    Sarria - Start of your journey

    When you all arrive in Santiago, you will be transferred to your hotel in Sarria to enjoy your first evening meal.

    Sarria to Portomarin (6h,22km)

    Indulge in a peaceful walk in shaded oak woods, picturesque villages on quiet unpolished roads. The village of Barbadelo (580m) has a Romanesque church that is worth a visit. The next symbolic village is Ferreiros. When you arrive in Portomarin (550m), take a relaxing break on one of the terraces in the main plaza.

    Portomarín to Palace do Rei (6h15 ,25km)

    From the village, the Camino crosses over the historic river Minho and climbs a steady gradient. Along the way, you will cross Gonzar and pass by the Romanesque Church of Santa María, Castromaior. The tranquility of the Galician Cemetery in Ligonde on a sunny day is bliss in itself. In Eirexe, the Romanesque portal of the chapel is breathtaking and features a sculpture of Daniel and animals inside. You will then arrive in Palace do Rei (565m).

     Palas de Rei to Melide (4h ,15Km)

    Today, the Camino begins to decend, passing the village of Casanova and the plesant village of Leboreiro. At Melide (454m),  we recommend you stop in one of the plentiful restaurants to try some local delicacies.

     Melide to Arzua (13km, 3h30)

    The Camino will follow a forest track and cross several streams bringing you to the village of Boente with its church of Santiago. Then the medieval village of Ribadiso, and finally Arzua (389m). This small town has 2 churches that you can visit, Santa María and La Magdalena.

    Arz?a to R?a-O Pino (5h15, 18km)

    This shaded segment of the Camino passes through woods, along streams and through sleepy villages. Move at your own pace and visit the chapel of Santa Irena, with its unrepeated statues of Santiago. The final leg to Rua/Opino is along a good and quiet country road. Rua (310m) is one of the less crowded stopping points before Santiago de Compostela.

    Rua to Santiago de Compostela (5h20, 21km)

    You are nearly there! The next stage will be Lavacolla where pilgrims traditionally bathed in the river before getting to Santiago de Compostela. Towering eucalyptus trees line your way along the route to Monte del Gozo (368m). From the "Mount of Joy" your goal is in sight - the Cathedral of Santiago! After an easy descent to the city (264m, population 80000) you witness this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Marvel at the architeture and absorb the joyous atmosphere in this cultural and spiritual mecca.
