Ourense to Santiago de Compostela

Section 10 of 10
7 Days
Moderate Difficulty

Starting in Ourense and reaching Santiago de Compostela, this section of the Camino runs through both farmland and the green low mountains of Galicia. As you approach the final destination of the entire Camino, or Way of Saint James, you can feel the buzz and appeal it has created over the centuries, as the rich heritage evidenced in the chapels, crosses and statues linked to the Camino can be seen every day during the walk. With many up and downs, this section can be seen as challenging, but, with Santiago de Compostela being the final stage, this is certainly the most rewarding of the whole Via de la Plata route!
