FROM OURENSE TO SANTIAGO (110 Km)

The Silver Route or Mozárabe route is one of the oldest known paths. It is a way that crosses Spain from south to north. This is the longest of the ways to Santiago, we offer the possibility of doing it from Ourense. This journey is considered one of the most beautiful, and it is one of the favorites of experienced pilgrims around the world.

Arrival in Ourense

The traveler is responsible to arrive at the given accommodation on the chosen date. This day is a good chance to visit the city and to rest.

Ourense – Cea

DificultadLowTiempo estimado 4h 30′Distancia21 Km

We will start our journey with an easy stage, starting from Mayor Square of Ourense. To continue our way we have two possibilities, both will end at the same point, Casasnovas. From there we will continue through asphalt and dirt roads to finally cross Barbatiño River, arriving at our destination.

Cea – Lalín

Dificultad MediumTiempo estimado 7hDistancia34 Km

Today we are facing a stage longer than the previous one, again we can choose between two routes: The first one, shorter, goes straight to Laxe. The second one, a bit longer goes to Oseira Monastery. At Laxe both roads converge to continue towards Lalín where we will have our accommodation.

Lalín – Bandeira

DificultadLowTiempo estimado 4h 30′Distancia17 Km

This third stage is short and easy. We will walk both in asphalt and dirt roads until crossing the Deza River. We will continue to Trasfontao and then we will arrive to the city of Silleda. From this point we will continue crossing Toxa River to finally reach our destination, Bandeira.

Bandeira – Santa cruz de Rivadulla

Dificultad LowTiempo estimado 3h 30′Distancia15 Km

Again, this stage does not represent any difficulty. We will start by leaving Bandeira towards a paved stretch that will take us to Dornelas. Then land and asphalt roads alternate arriving at San Miguel de Castro. A paved section will lead us to the Ulla River. We will leave Pontevedra to enter A Coruña. Finally, only two kilometers separate us from Santa Cruz de Rivadulla, our goal for this stage.

Santa Cruz de Rivadulla – Santiago de Compostela

Dificultad LowTiempo estimado 4hDistancia22 Km

This is the last stage of our journey. We recommend starting walking early to take advantage of the day in Santiago. The first three kilometers will be through the forest. Once we arrive in Lestedo, we recommend visiting also the Sacred Peak where we can enjoy the views. We will reach A Susana to finally make our entrance to Compostela through the district of Sar. A hard climb to the historic city center is the only thing left to reach our desired destination, Obradoiro Square.

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.
