Camino de Santiago Itinerary from Ferrol
Ferrol is an important coastal city in Galicia due to its port and strategic military position. We recommend visiting Ferrol’s white sandy beaches, where it is typical for people to go surfing.
From Ferrol to Pontedeume - 30km
The port of Ferrol dates back to the 9th century, and this is where we will begin our hike. We will leave the city of Ferrol heading in the direction of the Monastery of San Martino de Xubio from the 8th century. During our journey to the monastery we will get to enjoy walking along a beautiful coastal path. Once we reach the Monastery of San Martino de Xubio, we continue along the Camino de O Salto until reaching the banks of the Eume Estuary, where the Camino de O Salto joins the Camino Real. Once in A Magdalena we can rest and enjoy its stunning beach, which is known for the color of its sand.
Optional: From Ferrol to Pontedeume with an overnight in Neda - 15km y 15km
If walking 30km in a single day is too much, we can choose to spend the night in the beautiful city of Neda, dividing the stage from Ferrol to Pontedeume into two stages of 15km each.
From Pontedeume to Betanzos - 22km
Once we leave Pontedeume, we will continue on our journey while enjoying some spectacular views over Betanzos, Ares and Ferrol. We will continue to follow the trail until reaching Miño, where we will get to cross a medieval stone bridge over the Baxoi River. We will continue on our way along the coast until we reach the estuary of the Lambre River, from where we can take in beautiful views of the Betanzos Rias and its marshes. In Betanzos we can check out various artistic and historic buildings.
From Betanzos to Bruma Meson do Vento - 29km
We will continue to follow the English Way crossing the Mendo River on the As Cascas bridge. Then we will cross through the towns of Matino and Boucello, and after we will have the opportunity to pass by the hermitage of San Paio, which is abandoned. We will continue until reaching Bruma Meson do Vento, popular for its medieval hospital.
From Bruma Meson do Vento to Sigüeiro - 29km
As we leave Bruma we will enter the green countryside of Ordes. We will pass by the Church of San Xiao and the Casanova village before ultimately arriving at Sigüeiro.
Upon leaving the town of Sigüeiro, we will cross the bridge over the Tambre River. The trail continues parallel to the river until we reach Fontana de Inglés, where we will continue on our way until reaching Meixonfrio, a historically popular place where pilgrims would rest. We will continue until we reach Santiago de Compostela, where we can admire its magnificent cathedral and enjoy the city’s unique charm.
The English Way ends in Santiago de Compostela. We recommend thoroughly visiting the city center before returning home, so please feel free to ask us about additional nights or tours in the historic center of the city. Trips to Finisterre or the Cíes Islands are also recommended.
