Itinerary

SarriaArrive at any time.
Welcome meeting in the evening.
Sarria/PortomarínHike from Sarria to Portomarín throughout the course of the day.
Pass through many lovely towns along the way and maybe choose to have a picnic in places such as Barbadelo, Renta or Ferreiros.
Portomarín/Palas de ReiEarly start from Portomarin, continue walking through fantastic scenery with a rich history en route to Palas de Ray.
Walk from Portomarin to Palas de Rey. Weary pilgrims can get a jolt of caffeine in one Palas de Rey's cafes or visit some of the local shops to grab some souvenirs.
Palas de Rei/MelideContinue the pilgrimage westwards, walking through the lush green valleys of Galicia.

Continue walking through rural Spain. Take a break in the lively market town of Melide (454m), and try octopus, Galicia's most classic dish, in one of the many 'pulperías'.

Melide/ArzúaFollow the Camino from Melide to the village of Ribadiso and finally the town of Arzúa.

Leaving Melide, the Camino crosses several streams and follows a forest track to the village of Boente with its church of Santiago. Next is the scenic medieval village of Ribadiso and finally the town of Arzúa (389m). In Arzúa, visit the churches of Santa María and A Magdalena.

Arzúa/SalcedaThe Camino walk will pass through pretty woods, sleepy villages and across streams most of the day.

Walk through pretty woods, sleepy villages and across streams most of the day. The chapel of Santa Irene, with its unique statue of Santiago, is worth a visit. En-route, don't miss the lovely hamlet of Rúa (310m). The rest of the route to Amenal is along a mix of good and calm country roads and forest tracks.

Salceda/Santiago de CompostelaEnjoy a final day of walking through spectacular scenery towards the final destination.

Leave early in order to reach Santiago de Compostela in time for the pilgrim's mass. Walk the last part of the pilgrimage and enjoy the scenery before the baroque, painted towers of the cathedral come into view. Later, explore this fascinating city and sip some wine in a café to celebrate the incredible journey. Upon reaching our goal, the pilgrimage is not complete without a visit to the cathedral on the magnificent Praza do Obradoiro, which houses the supposed tomb of St. James the Apostle.
