Day 1Welcome to Legendary Spain

We welcome you in the town of Sarria. Sarria is the crossroad town for many Caminos and has seen thousands of pilgrims and other travelers who have set out on a spiritual journey. One of the key reasons to begin the Camino from here is that you will recieve your Compostela. Tucked in the foothills of the Lugo is the thousands of years of history underfoot, Sarria is the center of our Camino universe. We settle into the luxurious city center hotel and spend the evening briefing the coming 7 days. Later we explore the gorgeous Old Town while enjoying Galician tapas on a lively pintxo bar hop. This is a walk-free day.

We visit Romanesque churches, we pass by the Os Lameiros crossroad that runs mainly along asphalt tracks parallel to the road. We follow the arrows forward the quaint little town of Palas de Rey and end the day’s activity sipping on regional Galcian Albariño white wine, and savouring their speciality which is an assortment of barbecued meats.

Day 4Palas de Rey to Arzua

Today is a mixture of Galician pathways and country roads with rolling hills.

We stop for lunch in Melide famous for the octupus dishes – we enjoy the best pulpo in town. This is where the camino Primitivo joins the Camino Frances. We continue to

This stage is the longest of those that pass through Galician territory. In this stage, the province of Lugo is left to enter the last of the provinces through which it runs, the province of A Coruña, where it enters through the village of O Coto, the border between both provinces. It is a demanding stage, with a broken and irregular profile, where short but physically difficult climbs are frequent, in which sections in an exceptional state of conservation coexist that cross wonderful villages of deep Galicia, with less rewarding areas such as industrial estates or sections with a very improvable state of conservation.

Upon reaching the destination town, Arzúa, the pilgrims of the French Way join those who come from the Northern Way to face the last two stages that separate them from Compostela.
Food: Breakfast, lunch and dinner
Walk: Palas de Rey to Arzua
Sleep: Rural Boutique Hotel
How far:: 17,7 miles / 28,5 kms
Afternoon Pleasures: Relax in your Galician countryside town

Day 5 Arzua to O Pedrouzo

At this point, and only 40 kilometers from entering the Plaza del Obradoiro and contemplating our destination, we have several options, the most advisable being to spend the night in O Pedrouzo, since it is a place that has all the services necessary and allows us to leave a small stage to finish our journey for the next day.

Other pilgrims choose to spend the night in Santa Irene, a small place very close to Pedrouzo and that has both a public and private shelter, as well as an imposing hermitage in honor of Saint Peter embraced by a lush oak grove, where every June 29 a pilgrimage is held in his honor. However, there are pilgrims who even choose to do a slightly longer stage and spend the night in Monte do Gozo, staying at the same entrance doors in Santiago de Compostela to arrive the next day at very early hours. In any case, it is advisable to divide the stage into two, and enjoy the last two days remaining to reach Compostela, which pass through quiet service roads, with hardly any houses in sight and whose only drawback is that we have to cross many times the national highway by zones, sometimes with a certain danger.

Today begins the last portion of the Camino de Santiago Frances. We can feel the tingles of excitement knowing how close we are to completing such a personal and even spiritual challenge. Victory is near. It will be a day of celebration and joy. We walk to Santiago over low-lying hills under the protection of immense eucalyptus forests. At long last we come to Monte de Gozo where many different Camino paths converge into one. Just a bit farther and we stop at the Monument to the Pilgrim where you catch your first view of Santiago de Compostela and the cathedral towers, a deeply moving moment. We walk a few more kilometers and roll right into Plaza de Obradoiro where the bagpiper welcomes us to Santiago. Our stop in Santiago is complete as we walk the steps of the cathedral.
