Camino de Santiago „Camino Francés“

From Sarria to Santiago de Compostela.

The last hundred kilometres of the Camino de Santiago are meant to be the “classic” section of the popular pilgrims route, which leads through half of Europe. Along this part you cross Galicia, the green and westernmost province of Spain. A diversified landscape, pleasant temperatures and friendly people are accompanying you. And the Galician cuisine is pampering you with regional delicacies from the countryside and sea. Enjoy it with a glass of local Ribero white wine. Take your time, to visit the biggest cultural places of interest. The goal of all pilgrims, Santiago de Compostela, together with its outstanding cathedral is also the last station and highlight of your journey. While eating a “Tarta de Santiago” (cake with almonds) you look back on your walking week along the Camino Francés.

The first part of your walking tour leads you through Santiago de Barbadelo, where we recommend visiting the romantic church. The church from the 12th century has wonderful porches, which are decorated for instance with flowers and scallops. Via Brea with its 100-milestone the path leads to Ferreiros. After the visit of church Santa Maria de Ferreiros you continue to famous pilgrimage village Portomarin.

After your start in Portomarin you walk up to Monte S. Antonio and afterwards down to Toxibo and Gonzar, to church Santa Maria. Through green landscapes and past many romantic churches the route leads you into the small town of Palas de Rei. It is not definitely proved if Palas de Rei was a royal official residence in former times, the visit of the frescoes in church San Tirso is worth it anyway.

Loop tour and visit of the impressing and antique cathedral of Santiago, a popular place of pilgrimage for Christians, with more than 75.000 pilgrims visiting yearly.

Tour character

A hilly path leads you through the green landscape of Galicia with numerous eucalyptus forests and cornfields. The route leads along walking paths and forest roads as well as along silent side roads. For the last 100 km of the Camino de Santiago with daily stages of up to 7 hours we recommend a good basic fitness level.

Buen Camino
Gute Beratung und Betreuung auch im Vorfeld, auf individuelle Kundenwünsche wurde eingegangen und diese auch umgesetzt. Die gebuchten Unterkünfte waren alle sehr schön und gut ausgewählt. Die gebuchte Halbpension war auch sehr gut, es gab in der Regel ein dreigängies Abendessen und gutes Frühstück. Verlaufen ist auf dem Camino ja unmöglich bei der guten Beschilderung. Ein wirklich schöner Urlaub.

Spanischer Jakobsweg
Wer nur die letzten hundert Kilometer wandern möchte macht hier nichts verkehrt. Die Unterkünfte sind komfortabel (Merhbett Lager sind nicht unser Ding) und liegen direkt am Jakobsweg. Die Pilgermesse in Sarria ist besonders sehenswert.
