French Way of Saint James Route from Sarria to Santiago
TRANSFER TO SARRIA FROM MADRIDWe provide transportation to Sarria, city from which we will start our pilgrimage the next day. During this trip, we will stop in the Leon city of Astorga, one of the official towns of the French Route to Santiago de Compostela, where you can visit the impressive Astorga Cathedral and the famous Episcopal Palace designed by the prestigious architect Antonio Gaudi (author , among other works, by La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona). The next stop on our way will be in the Galician village O'Cebreiro, where you can admire the interesting ethnographic set of "pallozas", typical houses with thatched roofs of the Galician mountain, whose origin dates back to the first century AD, and that They have been declared "Good of Cultural Interest". Immediately before Sarria, we will make a stop at the Benedictine Monastery of San Julián de Samos, an eternal refuge for pilgrims since its foundation in the, far away, 6th century A.D. After this enriching day, we will begin our journey to Santiago de Compostela enjoying the company of other pilgrims from the city of Sarria, where the pilgrimage begins. In this town we will spend the night to rest from the intense day lived and regain strength to continue the next morning with the First Stage of our French Way of Santiago. DINNER • OVERNIGHT
STAGE 1 (14 MI) · FROM SARRIA TO PORTOMARINGood Morning! Today, we truly begin our pilgrimage to the Cathedral of the Apostle Santiago. The day will begin with an early and succulent breakfast after which, we will get going. Remember that, along the Camino de Santiago you can seal your Pilgrim Passport in most churches and lodgings. This Credential will allow you to obtain, at the end of your trip, La Compostela, also, erroneously, known as Compostelana; document proving that you have successfully completed the Camino de Santiago. The 12th century Church of San Salvador de Sarria, in addition to its cultural and aesthetic interest, is one of these places. At the exit of the city of Sarria we will find the Ponte da Aspera, stone construction with four arcades dated in the sg. XII that has helped pilgrims from all over the world to cross over the small Celeiro river without getting their feet wet. An hour later we will pass the small town of Barbadelo and, a few kilometers away we will find the famous sign that indicates that only 100 kilometers are missing to reach Santiago de Compostela. To end our First Stage of the Camino de Santiago we will cross over the Belesar reservoir to reach Portomarín. This reservoir, which was created in 1960 to supply electricity to the entire region, was built on the main riverbed of Galicia: the Miño. In Portomarin, we can admire, among other places of interest, the Church of St. Nicholas. FULL BREAKFAST • LUGAGGE TRANSFER • OVERNIGHT
STAGE 2 (16 MI) · FROM PORTOMARIN TO PALAS DE REIToday's day is a little longer but, the landscape, monuments and the company of other pilgrims will make this day, another wonderful stage of our Pilgrimage to the tomb of the Apostle Santiago. At the beginning, we will pass the towns of Gonzar and Castromaior, at the exit of the latter we will see the fabulous Castro that gives its name to the population. It is a human settlement founded in the Iron Age. Another important point on our route is the Cruceiro de Lameiros dated in 1670. The work, which, on one side shows Jesus crucified and on the other hand the Virgin Dolorosa with her dead son in her arms, is endowed with a huge symbolic drama added by a series of elements carved on the faces of the base of the cross. It shows different representative objects of the Martyrdom of Jesus Christ: a hammer, nails, ladder, crown of thorns, a skull and bones. Without a doubt, an important milestone of the Camino de Santiago. Continuing on our 'French Road Route' we will arrive at the town of Palas de Rei where we will spend the night. In this municipality, they 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. FULL BREAKFAST • LUGAGGE TRANSFER • OVERNIGHT
STAGE 3 (18 MI) · FROM PALAS DE REI TO ARZUAWith Palas de Rei behind us, we leave the province of Lugo to enter La Coruña (A Coruña). Many of the locations and places we walk through today look like living prints from the Middle Ages. Examples include the Church of Santa Maria de Leboreiro and the Velhe Bridge over the Furelos River, civil construction of the 12th century, and one of the most beautiful on this French Way to Santiago de Compostela. When we reach the municipality of Melide, we leave the medieval environment behind and enter a slightly more modern area. As is well known, one of the main protagonists of the fantastic Galician cuisine is the octopus. The best octopus recipes are traditionally prepared in restaurants throughout Galicia, so we recommend a stop on the Camino to taste these delicious dishes. Melide is only 50 km from Santiago de Compostela, which means that we have already crowned half of our Way! And from here to Arzua, where we will spend the night. FULL BREAKFAST • LUGAGGE TRANSFER • OVERNIGHT
STAGE 4 (12 MI) · FROM ARZUA TO O PEDROUZOThe day includes easier routes to overcome, thanks to which we will maintain the energy for the end of the Way in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. During the entire pilgrimage of this day we can admire the wonderful landscapes full of fields and meadows where they grow freely, strong and proud oaks and eucalyptus. The visits especially recommended throughout the stage are: the small Church of Santa Irena and the, known among the pilgrims as, 'Fountain of Eternal Youth', which bears the same name of the Saint, and whose legend tells that, He who washes himself with his waters will keep his youth forever. The beautiful Church of the late 17th century was erected in honor of Santa Irena, a Portuguese martyr who was sacrificed in this place. FULL BREAKFAST • LUGAGGE TRANSFER • OVERNIGHT
STAGE 5 (12 MI) · FROM O PEDROUZO TO SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELAThe few kilometers of his last day of the Camino de Santiago run through pleasant and picturesque landscapes. In the town of Lavacolla you can ascend to the viewpoint of El Monte del Gozo, where, for the first time, you can contemplate the desired objective of your pilgrimage, the Cathedral Church of Santiago de Compostela. From there, only a few kilometers separate us from the Plaza del Obradoiro, where the Cathedral of the Apostle Santiago awaits us, majestic. Upon completion of the trip, they will be asked to show their Pilgrim Passports and reveal the purpose of their trip (eg spiritual, cultural). Subsequently, they will receive the Special Certificate proving that they have successfully completed their Pilgrimage. The journey is over, but NOT the experience of the Way. Now, together with a multitude of pilgrims from all over the world, you can visit the surroundings of the Cathedral and see the famous Botafumeiro, huge censer, which aromatizes the Cathedral in the most solemn moments. Upon leaving the monument to Santiago Apostle, they can share their experiences on the road with a cheerful and sickly crowd of pilgrims. FULL BREAKFAST • LUGAGGE TRANSFER • OVERNIGHT
