FROM SARRIA TO SANTIAGO WITH GROUP (110km)
If you don’t feel like doing the Way of Saint James alone, or you are going with company but want to join other pilgrims, meet new people and above all have fun, you can join our organized groups. Live the authentic experience of the Way including a powerful social component with our French Way in group. We have departures throughout the year, support vehicle, transport of luggage and most importantly: very good vibes 😉
Arrival in Sarria (Lugo)
If you have chosen the option of traveling with our bus service you should only adapt to the departure time from your city. Departure times and places will be announced one month prior to the start date of the trip. If you choose to arrive to Sarria by your own, the traveller is responsible to arrive at the given accomodation on the chosen date.
First thing to do when we arrive in Sarria is go to the accommodation for check in and meet the group. The monitor will schedule an information meeting. At the meeting we will give to each traveler the pilgrim’s credentials, the luggage transport labels and some other gifts. After the meeting we can visit the village and get to know Sarria.
Start here your French Way in group.
Sarria – portomarín
The departure time will be after breakfast, the guide that will give us some details about the stage. After the introduction, it’s time to start walking.
The first part of the stage is characterized by landscapes and nature. A very comfortable path for the pilgrim who will not only find beauty in the landscape but also will have the opportunity to see some monuments such as the Churches of Ferreiros and Barbadelos, or the Fortress of San Nicolás. A few kilometers before reaching the end, we will find the Belesar basin near to Miño River, an indicator that we are already arriving. Finally we will reach Portomarín. End of the stage and arrival at the accommodation.
Portomarín – Palas de Rei
This second stage is a bit more difficult than the first one, we will propose 7:30 am as departure time. We will start our journey after the guide’s speech. We will find some paved areas in contrast with the green landscapes.
During the walk we will have the chance to see the famous cruceiros and also we can contemplate two Monasterys: Vilar de Donas and San Salvador. It is an easy walk until getting to Palas de Rei.
Palas de Rei – Arzúa
The difficulty gradually increases so we will leave earlier than the previous phase. We will start our journey after the guide’s speech.
We are in the province of A Coruña. This stage is characterized by dirt roads, medieval bridges and leafy forest. Difficulty increases due to the distance and the differences in ground level. Once in Melide we have covered half way, from Melide there are only 14 kilometers to reach Arzúa, the end of the stage.
Arzua – Pedrouzo
After the previous stage, we deserve a good rest so the starting time will be around 8 AM. It is the shorter and easiest stage of the entire tour. Its beauty will make us invest the time saved in stopping to look carefully at every detail. We will find amazing landscape and historical monuments before to arrive at Pedrouzo and find the accommodation.
Pedrouzo – Santiago de Compostela
Even being the shortest stage we will start around 7 AM to take advantage of the day in Santiago. This is the last and the most exciting of the stages, after 5 hard days walking we will finally arrive to our goal, Santiago de Compostela. The shortest stage but one of the most exciting. We highly recommend to start walking early in order to arrive to Santiago as soon as possible to enjoy the rest of the day in the city.
Monte Do Gozo its a strategic point, located just 4 km from the Cathedral. Once there we will observe in the distance the towers of the long-awaited Cathedral of Santiago and we will feel a great personal satisfaction. We must let ourselves be guided downhill, the end of our Camino is near. We will arrive at Obradoiro Square, where the Cathedral is located.
Santiago de Compostela
Mission completed. After sealing our credential at every stage and collecting our Compostela, we deserve this great reward. A good opportunity to get to know the city, enjoy its culture, people and gastronomy, after all the effort invested you’ve earned it.
You have reached the end of this French Way in Group, which you started in Sarria.
