Coruna to Santiago de Compostela Map
With exceptionally strategic locations, the ports of A Coruna and Ferrol were the entry points for pilgrims coming by sea from the north. This Camino starts in A Coruna (the “glass city”) passing through O Burgo, Sergude and Bruma before joining the Camino Inglés (English Way) from Ferrol. This route from A Coruna offers even more quietness than the way from Ferrol, perfect to escape from the crowds and reconnect with yourself. 

Highlights

Get your Compostela - Start the Camino at home!

By walking this 75 km trail from A Coruna to Santiago, you can also apply to get your Compostela certificate. For that, you have to walk a certified 25 km pilgrimage in your home country. This alternative way is perfect for people who don’t have the time to walk the 100 km required to get a Compostela.

  • To be eligible, people have to provide evidence to the Pilgrim Office that proves that they have walked 25 km in their home country.
  • For people living in A Coruna, if they walk the Camino for spiritual reasons they may also receive their Compostela certificate.

Some eligible Ireland and UK routes

In Ireland, you can get a Celtic Camino Compostela and go on some of the spiritual routes like the Bray Coastal Route, Boyne Valley Camino, and St Kevin’s Way. For more information, please visit the Camino Society of Ireland website.

In the UK, some of the spiritual routes that provide a pilgrim passport and stamps which would provide proof for the Pilgrim Office in Santiago are the Way of St. Andrews, the Pilgrims Way (Winchester or London to Canterbury) and St Michael’s Way (Lelant to Mazarion).

Discover A Coruna city!

A Coruna is a vibrant coastal city well known for its excellent food, great beaches, historic monuments and culture. Some of the main highlights of the city are the San Anton Castle, the 12th century Church of Santiago (Igrexa de Santiago), the Plaza de Maria Pita, Parque de los Menhires and the Tower of Hercules.

On your first days walk you will walk through urban areas, a riverside park and country roads. This traditional path leaves from Praza de María Pita. You leave the city through the esplanade in O Burgo town, passing by an old tide mill of Acea de Ama, crossing the historic Roman bridge of O Burgo and the Church of Santiago of O Burgo.

Day 3
13km

SERGUDE
to
MESON DO VENTO / ORDES / BRUMA

Walk along quiet and peaceful rural country roads, paved roads and forest paths. Today is nice and short so you have plenty of time to appreciate it before making a steeper ascent to your stop for the night.

24.7km

MESON DO VENTO / ORDES / BRUMA

SIGUEIRO

Walk through the beautiful Galician countryside. You'll mostly be walking downhill today. Some of the main highlights today 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.


Day 5
16.4km

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 6

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.
