The Camino Ingles, or English Way, is the striking route from the northern coast down to Santiago de Compostella. It was originally the route taken by seafaring pilgrims of Northern Europe. Pilgrims from countries as far away as Scandinavia, England, Scotland and Ireland would have travelled from their homes to ports, and then sailed to the coast of Galicia. From there, their pilgrimage to reach the tomb of St James would begin.
They would walk from the ports of Viverio, Ribadeo, Ferrol and A Coruna to Santiago de Compostela. Today’s pilgrims on the Camino Ingles route begin in Ferrol or further back along the coast in A Coruna. A shorter route through Spain, this walk links up perfectly with Celtic Caminos in the UK and Ireland.
