Traditionally, English and Irish pilgrims arrived by sea at Ferrol. The English way starts following the rugged hilly coastline, then moves inland to the lush, wooded countryside. Passing through the medieval village of Betanzos is like travelling back in time with its hill-perched market place. It is quieter than other routes so far those who are trying to get away from the more popular French Way, the English Way presents a great alternative to reach Santiago and get your pilgrim certificate within a week.

PONTEDEUME

The English Way begins at the docks of Curuxeiras, in the neighbourhood that has sprung up on the site of the 9th Century. After leaving Ferrol, the Camino rises to an elevation offering sweeping views of Betanzos, Ares and Ferrol. After crossing the single-arched medieval bridge over the Baxoi river, the Camino leads to Mino by way of the Camino Real once again. Following the shoreline,which is an ever-present feature along the early stretches of the English Way, we reach the wide estuary of the Lambre River. This stretch offers lovely views of the Rias de Betanzos and its marshlands. An option to split into two days, with a stop over in Neda.

Walk through the beautiful Galician countryside. On day three, the trend in elevation is downhill must of the time, with very few short uphills in between. Some of the main highlights on this day are the lovely historic Horreo, the 18th-century Igrexa de San Paio de Buscas in A Rúa town and the impressive colours of the forest and charming paths that you’ll find on your way.


Day 6
16.1km

SIGUEIRO
to
SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA

After crossing the Sigueiro Bridge over the Tambre river, we continue into the municipality of Santiago. The Way continues along the river and leads to the “Fonte do Ingles” (The English Fountain). The way soon reaches Meixonfrio, site of an old inn where pilgrims and travellers would stop and rest. After passing a pre-Roman hill-fort, where, according to the tradition each passing pilgrim would lay a stone on the already exiting pile, the Camino enters Santiago to reach its imposing cathedral.


Day 7

SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA

After breakfast, we bid you farewell. If you wish to stay in the area, we recommend that you: – Take your time and visit the magnificent historic centre – Continue with us along the wild “Camino Fisterra” (Finisterre Way), and stay overnight at the 2* hotel in the light house! – or take a bus to Fisterra. (Bus to fisterra: 9am, 10am, bus back in Santiago 16:45 & 19:00. takes 3hours) – Visit the unspoilt sandy coves and beaches of the west coast. With very few tourists, you are guaranteed a very special experience.
