The Camino Primitivo, or Original Way, is a stunning and isolated trek through Galicia from Oviedo to Santiago de Compostela.
The Camino Primitivo route is considered to be the very first of the pilgrimage route to Santiago.
It is one of the most beautiful, challenging, and rewarding routes on the Camino de Santiago. It crosses a mountain range, climbing to 1100m above sea level. It’s well worth the climb for the spectacular views of the Embalse de Salime, the River Navia and of course the towering surrounding mountains.
