Sanabrian Way

13 Stages | 365 km

The most fascinating and unknown route of the Camino de Santiago

The Sanabrian Way is a part of the Silver Route that links Granja de Moreruela with Santiago de Compostela, passing through Puebla de Sanabria until it enters the interior of the province of Ourense. An uncrowded path perfect for those who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of other routes.

Sanabrian Way Information

The Sanabrés Way

Although the Sanabrés Way is a continuation of the Silver Route, nowadays we can consider it as a Way on its own. A fascinating route due to the enviable natural environment, full of contrasts and bucolic landscapes, with mild temperatures in spring and autumn. A solitary path, far from the overcrowding and the incessant rattling of pilgrims on other routes. It could be said that the Sanabria route still preserves the Jacobean essence that some pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago seek so much. Nowadays, although it has fewer services than other routes, it has enough hostels and is very well signposted.

Where to start the Sanabrian Way?

From Granja de Moreruela

The Sanabrés Way starts in the Zamora town of Granja de Moreruela, leaving the Silver Route for good until it reaches Santiago de Compostela. It is divided into 13 stages that extend for about 370 km (through the variant of Laza), and crosses part of the Castilian plateau to get into mountainous terrain typical of the Galician orography.

From Ourense

But if we do not have enough time to do the complete route we can start the Sanabria route from Ourense, with a total of 110 kilometers to Santiago de Compostela. This last stretch can be done in 5 stages that we will complete in just one week.
