Travel Itinerary

You will start your French Way from the historic town of Sarria, in the province of Lugo. A place where you can enjoy a first day strolling through its streets, discovering its monuments or relaxing in one of its terraces enjoying a lively pilgrim atmosphere. Let yourself be invaded by the thousands of sensations and emotions of nerves and joy that you will experience as soon as you arrive. And to rest, tomorrow the adventure begins.

Well, now we’re off to our first day as pilgrims! You will start your French Way by walking the first stage from Sarria to Portomarín, an easy and pilgrim-friendly itinerary. You will cross rivers and forests and find small churches and villages, with plenty of places to stop and have a drink. Pilgrims say that this is one of the most beautiful stages of the French route, so you know, lucky to start here. As soon as you arrive on the banks of the river Miño, you will find the charming village of Portomarín, resplendent with its white houses and slate roofs. An end of stage that you will fall in love with and that keeps a secret under the waters of the reservoir. All you have to do now is relax and enjoy!

One thing is clear: it is very likely that you will not want to leave Portomarín this morning. This small town has a “je ne sais quoi” that hooks people like a magnet. It is probably because of the charm of its streets, the good atmosphere and how nice its people are.

On this day you will head to Palas de Rei, a stage with some unevenness in which you will combine road and mountain along 25 kilometres. During the tour you will discover the Castromaior site, a good example of a settlement of the ancient inhabitants of Galicia. Once in Palas de Rei, you will have the opportunity to visit several archaeological remains of the megalithic culture such as dolmens, as well as mámoas and castros. As you can see, Palas de Rei will offer you a very didactic stay about this land.

This is the longest stage of the French Way within the Galician community, 29 kilometres separate you from your destination, so we recommend taking it easy and enjoying the surroundings, as it is also one of the most beautiful stretches of the route. Already in the province of A Coruña, dirt roads, lush forests and medieval bridges will guide your way to Santiago de Compostela.

For every pilgrim it is obligatory to make a stop in Melide, capital of the Galician octopus; in any of its many pulperías you will be able to taste this delicacy of the Galician gastronomy. After recovering your strength, the last kilometres will not involve much effort and once you reach Arzúa you will have the rest of the day to rest body and mind.

Once you get to Arzúa, you should not miss tasting the typical cheese to which it gives its name: Denomination of Origin Arzúa-Ulloa; accompanied by other typical products of the area.

Today begins the penultimate stage of your French Way. A pleasant walk through comfortable and flat terrain, with plenty of bars and restaurants that will encourage you to take it easy. Probably, as you walk, you will notice and realize that a kind of collective emotion begins to exist among the pilgrims. Do you feel it too?

The feeling of excitement, nerves and joy is the most characteristic of the end of the stage in O Pedrouzo. The advice, and you will see that everyone does the same, is to go to bed early to get up early the next day and start the stage very early. This way you will arrive earlier to Santiago and you will have more time in the city.

At last the last stage of your journey is here. As we said before, the sooner you start walking today the better, because the sooner you will get to Santiago de Compostela.

Once you arrive at Monte do Gozo, you will discover that pleasant sensation when you first see the towers of the cathedral. A perfect panoramic view before savouring your last kilometres and making the triumphal entrance to the Plaza del Obradoiro.

You are in Santiago! Feel happy and proud to have completed your French Way in spas and spas. Now we just need to pick up the Compostela certificate and enjoy an incredible day getting to know the Galician capital.

Congratulations! You have completed your French Way in spas and spas. This last day you are in charge, you can go back home or enjoy one more day in Santiago. And how beautiful is Compostela.

Did you know that all roads end in Finisterre? If you have been left with the desire to walk and you have 5 days more, we encourage you to complete the 5 stages from Santiago to Finisterre. The most magical and spiritual route that hides real treasures such as Ponte Maceira, one of the most beautiful villages in Spain or the extraordinary sunset of the Finisterre lighthouse.
