Way from Lugo to Santiago

Every great journey begins only with dreaming about it.

Discover the Way from Lugo to Santiago

The Way of Saint James, from Lugo (Primitive Way), begins at the foot of its fabulous Roman wall. Beautiful thousand-year-old city, a World Heritage Site, where we will begin this journey through Galician lands, across the most rural Galicia, dotted with small villages. Upon arriving in Melide, we meet the pilgrims from the French Way to continue together on a single path towards Santiago. From Monte do Gozo, at the gates of Santiago, we will enjoy an exceptional view of the Cathedral and the city of the Apostle.
