The Camino de Santiago from Amenal to Santiago de Compostela is the final leg of the journey for many pilgrims on the Camino Francés, which is the most popular route to Santiago.

As you progress, you'll notice a gradual transition from rural to suburban surroundings. The path takes you through small villages, open fields, and wooded areas, with increasing signs of urbanization. A significant landmark along the way is "Monte do Gozo" or "Mount of Joy." This hill offers a panoramic view of Santiago de Compostela, and it's a place where many pilgrims pause to savor their first glimpse of the city and the cathedral spires in the distance. After descending from Monte do Gozo, you'll continue through urban areas, eventually leading you into the heart of Santiago's historic district.
