Day 1: Meet in Sarria

You will arrive at Sarria by your own means on day 1 (transfers available upon request). Take the opportunity to visit the sights like the Monastery-Convent of la Magdalena and perhaps do some shopping for some last minute pilgrim items. Get a feel for this beautiful town by taking a stroll through the riverfront and enjoying delicious food sitting on one of many terraces along the river while you rest in anticipation of your first walking day. We'll have our welcome meeting and group dinner at the end of the day.

Meals: D. Overnight: Sarria.

Day 2: Sarria - Morgade (8 mi)
Our first day on el Camino! In Sarria we will see the first cross or cruceiro, located on a vantage point above the city. Then after we pass by Mary Magdalen's convent, we will leave the city through the medieval bridge Ponte Aspera. We will be walking through meadows and chestnut forests most of the way, perfect places to enjoy your picnic lunch. We will also see some of our first hórreos (granaries) along the way as we reach the official 100Km marker.

At the end of the stage we will transfer back to Sarria to spend the night.

Meals: B,L,D. Overnight: Sarria.



Day 3: Morgade - Portomarín (7 mi)
Today we will set out on foot for Portomarín, famous for its roman bridge and medieval churches. Our itinerary will take us through forest paths lined with oak and pine trees. We will pass by the Romanesque church of St Mary and cross several small towns until we start a sharp descent to the Mino river. We will enter the town through its old roman bridge rebuilt with steps that lead to a chapel. We'll enjoy a wonderful dinner and a well deserved rest.

Meals: B,L,D. Overnight: Portomarín.



Day 4: Portomarín - Ventas de Narón (8 mi)
Today we will leave Portomarin behind, as we make our way to Gonzar where we will see the romanesque St Mary's church which is very well conserved. Further on, we will visit the Castro of Castromaior, a series or celtic ruins from pre-roman times. We will stop when we reach Ventas de Naron, with a small chapel that seems to suggest the existence of an old pilgrim's hospital, just before the Sierra de Ligonde.

At the end of the stage we will transfer back to Portomarín.

Meals: B,L,D. Overnight: Portomarín.



Day 5: Ventas de Narón - Palas de Rei (7 mi)
Today we will leave Ventas de Narón. Before we enter the town of Ligonde we will see the famous cruceiro de Lameiros, from 1670, that represents Jesus' passion and death on its base. Towards the end of the stage we will visit the famous monastery of Vilar de Donas, with the Church of our Savior, where we will enjoy a guided tour. Back on el Camino, we will reach the larger town of Palas de Rei for dinner and overnight stay.

Meals: B,L,D. Overnight: Palas de Rei.



Day 6: Palas de Rei - Melide (10 mi)
Palas de Rei was the old residence of the visigoth king Witiza in the 8th century where you can visit the church of St. Tirso dating from the 12th century. We will set on foot for Melide today, an important town where both the Northern Camino and the Camino Primitivo merge with the French. For this reason, you'll find more pilgrims on the following stages until you arrive in Santiago.

Meals: B,L,D. Overnight: Melide.



Day 7: Melide - Arzúa (9 mi)
After enjoying the local food in Melide, we will make our way to Arzúa. The route is a mix of well conserved and repaired trails together with some more abrupt sections. You will cross the Iso river and reach the village of Ribadiso while walking through some of the most spectacular scenery in el Camino. We will make sure to try the renowned cheese varieties from this region (Arzúa-Ulloa). In March they hold a Cheese festival at the village dedicated to this local staple, famous enough to carry its own trademark.

Meals: B,L,D. Overnight: Arzúa.



Day 8: Arzúa - O Pedrouzo (12 mi)
After our stay in Arzúa, where you can visit the Convent of Mary Magdalen and the parochial church of Santiago, we'll get our pilgrim passports stamped and head out to the town of O Pedrouzo. This stage takes you through quiet forest paths with eucalyptus groves between villages that are so small with houses so spread out that it is hard to tell where one village ends and the next one begins. The scenery is one of the most beautiful throughout el Camino. Towards the end of the stage, we will visit the chapel and fountain of St Irene, built in the Baroque style.

Meals: B,L,D. Overnight: O Pedrouzo.



Day 9: O Pedrouzo - Lavacolla (6 mi)
Today we will be crossing into the Santiago province, a reminder that we are getting close to our final destination. Beautiful eucalyptus forests will surround us during most of the stage. As we approach the main road, we'll see small crosses that travelers have attach to the barriers as symbols of their pilgrimage.

Meals: B,L,D. Overnight: Lavacolla.



Day 10: Lavacolla - Santiago (7 mi)
Santiago is only a short distance from Lavacolla. Shortly after departing we will reach Monte de Gozo (Hill of Joy), the the first place from where you can see the spires in Santiago's Cathedral. Shortly after, you will arrive in Santiago where you will be able to visit the cathedral and have a chance to hug the apostle.

We will also collect our last stamp, our pilgrim certificate and enjoy our farewell dinner.
