Camino de Santiago from Ferrol

Every great journey begins only with dreaming about it.

Discover the Camino de Santiago from Ferrol

The Camino de Santiago from Ferrol, as well as from A Coruña, became the two main starting points of the English Way in the 12th century.

Thanks to its strategic location, Scandinavians, Flemish, English, Scots, and Irish intensely used sea routes to reach Spain and begin their pilgrimage. The Jacobean pilgrimage and its various routes gained great fame throughout medieval Europe.

  • Duration: 8 hours
  • Difficulty: Medium

Breakfast and start of the first stage of the Camino de Santiago from Ferrol.

We begin our pilgrimage in the coastal town of Ferrol, at the Coruxeiras docks. The arsenal and castles of Ferrol await you.

This stage is marked by passing through the most significant places in Ferrol and staying close to the Ferrol estuary at all times, skirting it to reach Neda and Fene.

Next, we advance very close to the sea until we reach Magdalena Beach. After crossing its impressive bridge, we arrive at Puentedeume, with the Andrade Castle’s Keep, the Church of Santiago, and the Town Hall as the most notable monuments.

Arrival in Puentedeume. End of the stage.

RECOMMENDATION

Pilgrims with little physical preparation or those who prefer to complete this longer stage in a more leisurely and relaxed manner are advised to divide the stage into two days:

Stage: Ferrol – Neda (15 km)

Stage: Neda – Puentedeume (13.5 km)

  • Duration: 5 hours 15 minutes
  • Difficulty: Low

Breakfast and start of the stage.

This stage runs inland, through small villages with constant small ascents and descents, featuring beautiful sections of tracks and paths until we reach Miño, the first part of the route, returning once again to the sea.

From Miño, we head back inland, on terrain very similar to what we have covered, until we reach the monumental Betanzos, accessed by crossing the Mandeo River via A Ponte Vella.

Significant places include the Church of Santiago, the Convent of San Francisco, the Church of Santa María de Azogue, and the Church of San Domingos.

Arrival in Betanzos. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 7 hours 30 minutes
  • Difficulty: Medium

Breakfast and start of the stage.

This stage is predominantly rural, and we will no longer see the sea for the rest of our journey. It presents the most challenges in terms of topography, especially in the last third, with the ascent to A Fontela and A Malata.

Notable points in this stage include: the Church of San Antonio de Cos and the Presedo Bridge.

Arrival in Bruma. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 6 hours 15 minutes
  • Difficulty: Low

Breakfast and start of the stage.

In this stage, the two routes of the English Way converge: the Camino de Santiago from Ferrol that we are taking, and the one starting in the city of A Coruña.

This stage is very similar to the previous one, with a scarcity of populated areas. It features wide wooded areas and paths through hills, as well as numerous springs.

Highlights include the Chapel of Bruma, the Church of San Paio de Buscás, and the Church of San Xiao de Poulo, as well as the Bridge of Sigueiro.

Arrival in Sigueiro. End of the stage.

  • Duration: 4h
  • Difficulty: Low

Breakfast and start of the stage.

Once you cross the Sigueiro Bridge over the Tambre River, you enter the municipality of Santiago.

The route passes by the “Fonte do Inglés” and the Tambre industrial park, then continues into Meixonfrio, bringing you to the entrance of our long-awaited destination.

Arrival in Santiago de Compostela. End of the Camino de Santiago from Ferrol. Accommodation.

If you have more days, you can continue the journey “to the end of the world” with the Camino de Santiago to Finisterre.

We have reached the last day of your journey! Enjoy breakfast and conclude this unforgettable experience with us. Thank you for being part of this adventure!

This itinerary will take you through the most popular stages, allowing you to experience the beauty and culture of the Wey of Santiago. Be sure to book accommodation in advance, as it can get crowded, especially in the high season.
Safe travels and Buen Camino!
