STAGE 1 (14 MI) · FROM SARRIA TO PORTOMARINGood Morning! Today, we really start our pilgrimage to the Cathedral of the Apostle Santiago. The stage will begin with a succulent breakfast after which, we will set off. Remember that you can seal your Pilgrim Passport in most churches and lodgings, along the Camino de Santiago. This Credential will allow you to obtain La Compostela when you complete your trip. The Church of San Salvador de Sarria, in addition to its artistic and cultural interest, is one of these places. At the exit of Sarria we will find the Ponte da Aspera, stone construction with four eyes dated in the s. XII that has helped pilgrims from all over the world to cross over the channel of the small river Celeiro without getting their feet wet. One hour later we will cross the town of Barbadelo and, a few kilometers away we will find the famous landmark that shows that only 100 kilometers are missing to reach Santiago de Compostela. To end this first stage of the French Way of Santiago we will cross over the Belesar reservoir to reach Portomarín. In Portomarin we can admire, among other places of interest, the Church of St. Nicholas, the stairway and the Chapel of Our Lady of Snow. Among its most traditional dishes we have the eel pie, its Celtic porco meat and Galician beef. FULL BREAKFAST • LUGAGGE TRANSFER • OVERNIGHT
STAGE 2 (16 MI) · FROM PORTOMARIN TO PALAS DE REIToday is a bit more extensive, but the landscape, artistic heritage and the company of other pilgrims will make this stage another wonderful pilgrimage day to the tomb of the Apostle Santiago. In the first miles, we will pass through the towns of Gonzar and Castromaior, at the exit of the latter we will find the spectacular Castro that gives its name to the municipality. It is a human settlement built in the Iron Age. Another prominent place on our route is the Cruceiro de Lameiros dated in 1670. The work of art, which, on one side, presents Jesus crucified and on the other side the Virgin Dolorosa with her dead son in her arms, shows a huge symbolic drama , increased by the iconography carved on its base. In it different representative elements of the Martyrdom of Our Lord Jesus Christ are observed: a skull, bones, a hammer, nails, ladder and crown of thorns. Undoubtedly, a relevant landmark of the Camino de Santiago. Continuing on our French Way we will arrive at the municipality of Palas de Rei where we will spend the night. In this municipality, you will have the opportunity to visit the Castle of Pambre (s. XIV). Fortress that served, in its initial stages, as a military base for the protection of the Camino de Santiago and its Pilgrims. Palas de Rei has a good gastronomic culture. In its pulpeiras we will find delicious recipes with octopus, also, we can taste traditional dishes with veal and pork and the typical cheese of the Arzúa-Ulloa area.

STAGE 3 (18 MI) · FROM PALAS DE REI TO ARZUAThere is the possibility of dividing this stage in two with overnight in Melide. Please, Ask us. With Palas de Rei behind us, we left the province of Lugo to enter La Coruña (A Coruña). An environment extracted from the Middle Ages with clear examples such as the Church of Santa María de Leboreiro and the Velhe Bridge over the Furelos River, built in the 12th century, and one of the most spectacular on this French Way to Santiago. In Melide, we will change the medieval environment for another with more modern connotations. It is well known that one of the protagonists of the delicious Galician cuisine is the octopus, therefore, we recommend a stop on your Camino de Santiago to taste these delicious dishes. Melide is 31 miles from Santiago de Compostela, which means that we have already passed the equator of our Way! We will continue walking to Arzúa where we will spend the night.

STAGE 4 (12 MI) · FROM ARZUA TO O PEDROUZOToday's stage presents easier paths to overcome between leafy forests and wide countryside. During the stage we recommend you to visit the charming Church of Santa Irena and its well-known 'Fountain of Eternal Youth', whose legend tells us that, everyone who washes with its waters will keep its youth forever. The Church (17th century) built in honor of the Portuguese martyr at the very place of her sacrifice, has great devotion among the pilgrims of the French Way of Santiago. In O Pedrouzo, where we will spend the night, we can enjoy a tasty and refreshing dinner based on the typical rations of Galician cuisine such as lacón con grelos, empanadas, raxo, zorza, chorizo, octopus a feira, cheeses and wines typical of the region, etcetera.

STAGE 5 (12 MI) · FROM O PEDROUZO TO SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELAStep by step we have reached the end of our Camino de Santiago. Just few kilometers away from the long-awaited ‘Embrace to the Apostle’. This last day gives us a 'journey of joy': 'Joy' for pilgrimage between evocative and picturesque landscapes, 'Joy' for glimpsing for the first time the spectacular towers of the Cathedral of Santiago and 'Joy' for completing a journey that, without a doubt, it will change our lives. Therefore, it is not surprising that the viewpoint of the town of Lavacolla is called Monte do Gozo (Mountain of Joy). From there, only a few kilometers separate us from the Plaza del Obradoiro, where the beautiful Cathedral of the Apostle Santiago awaits us. After crediting the success of your trip at the Pilgrim's Office, you will get your desired Compostela. The pilgrimage is over, but NOT the experience of the Way. Now, you can share it with an excited multitude of pilgrims from all over the world.
