Camino de Santiago from Sarria: Last 100 kms

Already in Galicia, we started our journey on the Camino de Santiago from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela, also known as "The last 100 Kms" This route was a melting pot where all forms of expression of European culture were melted. Beautiful landscapes, endearing people, ancient culture, inner peace, excellent cuisine, which can help you "find" what each one is looking for in this personal pilgrimage.

We will discover the essence of French Camino de Santiago, which seems to have left its mark on Galicia, after the massive passage of pilgrims who traveled it for years.

This is the route that most pilgrims go on foot, as it is the minimum number of kilometers required to get “La Compostela”

Mention, for lovers of good food, Melide, famous for its octopus, and mandatory stop, for the pilgrim, as well as remember that Arzúa gives rise to the denomination of origin of its famous tetilla cheeses.

Recommendation

For those people with little physical preparation or who prefer to perform the stage in a more calm and relaxed way, it would be advisable to divide the stage into two days:

Arrival to Pedrouzo. End of the stage Accommodation.

Day 6: Pedrouzo – Santiago de Compostela Stage (19,9 kms)
Difficulty: Easy Duration: 5h

Breakfast and start of the stage.

Probably, we have that double sensation, of wanting to reach the long-awaited end of the Camino, and the opposite of "this is over", which assails every pilgrim. Stage of anxiety and joy, in which the distance does not matter, because "it is already there". Smooth path, like the previous one, with the exception of the ascent to San Marcos, from Lavacolla, a place that owes its name to the stop made by pilgrims, before arriving in Santiago, to wash up in the river that runs through it and “show up before the tomb of the Apostle ”. I pass through Monte do Gozo and descend to Santiago de Compostela, just 4 Kms, more.

Arrival in Santiago de Compostela. End of the last 100 km of the French Way. Accommodation.

Congratulations pilgrim, now begins, probably "Your true Way."

The whole of Santiago de Compostela is worthy of mention, especially the Cathedral of Santiago and its restored Portico of Glory, which deserves a special separate visit, as well as its surroundings.

DID YOU KNOW… The Camino de Santiago from Sarria does not end at the Cathedral of Santiago? Until the end of the world! Ultreia et Suseia!

Once in Santiago, which is the end of the French Way, if you have more days you can extend the Road to Finisterre-Muxia, what one day was, for our ancestors, "the end of the known world."

Another option is to add additional nights in Santiago and take day trips to Finisterre and / or Rías Baixas.
