Camino de Santiago from Ferrol to Santiago

The Camino de Santiago from Ferrol, as well as departing from A Coruña became in the XNUMXth century the two main starting points of the Camino Inglés.

Thanks to their strategic situation Scandinavians, Flemish, English, Scottish and Irish used the roads of the sea with great intensity to reach Spain and begin the pilgrimage. The Jacobean pilgrimage had great fame throughout medieval Europe.

Stage that passes through the interior, with small villages and in constant small ascents and descents, with beautiful sections of tracks and roads, until we reach Miño, the first part of the route, returning again to the sea.

Starting from Miño, we return to the interior, in terrain very similar to the one we took, until we reached the monumental Betanzos, which we access by crossing the Mandeo river through A Ponte Vella.
