Camino Primitivo Stages

The Camino Primitivo or Original Way is a pilgrimage from Oviedo through the Cantabrian Mountains to Santiago de Compostela and the tomb of St James. Passing through famous Spanish towns and cities such as Oviedo, Lugo and Melide you have ample opportunity to experience the Cantabria and Galician culture. The walk is one of the most beautiful but also challenging as you pass through a mountain range 1100m above sea level to descend to the hilly countryside of Galicia.

This Walking Holiday explores the first section of the Camino Primitivo / Original Way, following the iconic Camino de Santiago de Compostela; the famous Way of Saint James.

Beginning in the walled city of Lugo, this walking holiday catches up with the Camino Frances in Melide and finishes in Santiago de Compostela. You will walk through heavily forested rural Galicia, witnessing the Roman influence on Spain’s roads and bridges
