The Vía de la Plata owes its origin to a set of Roman roads, which linked the south western part with the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula. The devotees of Santiago were those who followed the roads on their pilgrimage to the tomb of the Apostle.

The denomination “Silver”, was created that could be an evolution of “balata” use, which in Arabic means stone path, nothing to do with the noble metal.

During the tour of just over 100 kilometers, we will enjoy the landscape of the Camino de Santiago from Ourense to Santiago. Its thick oak and eucalyptus forests stand out, as well as the cultivated lands that stretch along La Coruña.

The signaling, with yellow arrows in the whole route, is good in general and following it does not present special difficulties.

With Santiago Ways, you will have the guarantee that the places where you rest are the best chosen in terms of quality and comfort. This point is especially important because this route does not have an infrastructure of lodgings as extensive as that of other routes.

Maps of the Camino de Santiago from Ourense

To continue completing the information necessary to undertake the Camino de Santiago from Ourense, we would like to offer you the following maps. They are excellent allies both before and during our pilgrimage.

Profile of the Camino de Santiago from Ourense

To develop the profile of a route, we must look at several criteria. The first of these is the altitude of the different stages. The second is its duration which, in large part, is conditioned by that other criterion. We also consider the difficulty of the terrain to elaborate with all this a profile that tells us the overall difficulty of the Camino, in this case, from Ourense.

According to the information of the whole route that goes from Ourense to Santiago, we can say that it is very simple. It has hardly any climbs and is, in fact, especially suitable for those people who seek to start on the Camino de Santiago as an adventure.

How long does the Camino de Santiago from Ourense take?

As we have said, the Camino from Ourense has a planned duration of about four days. In fact, on each one of them, you will make a stop, and on the fourth day, you will arrive in Santiago so you can complete the entire route after three nights. Still, as we always say in Santiago Ways, everything can depend on other factors.

Desde Ourense

In some cases, the time that it takes depends on the greater or lesser rate each person decides to take. In others, it's about whether the climatic conditions are kind or not. Finally, there is always the real possibility that we want to stay in a place to take pleasure in the scenery. It wouldn't be the first time it happened.

The best time to do the Camino from Ourense to Santiago de Compostela

The truth is that when choosing the best time of the year to make the Camino de Santiago the most prudent answer is that it "depends on your taste ". That's right: Each season has its own benefits that in fact add a special charm to the Camino de Santiago from Ourense in particular and to all the Camino de Santiago in general.

Still, below we offer you more detailed information so that you can know what strengths and weaknesses each season of the year has.

Spring

Spring has a benign climate in its favour. However, it is also true that sometimes it can behave in an unstable manner.

In spite of everything, and if we have enough foresight, the Camino de Santiago from Ourense can be completed during this time. With this, we will benefit from the explosion of colour that surrounds all the wonderful environment that we can find for ourselves along the way.

Summer

Summer is the pilgrims' favourite time of the year to complete their route. This is because there are more daylight hours and because that is the time of year when we have enough time to do so.

It is inconvenient, precisely, that according to the route and the planning that we have we can find problems of overcrowding. This can be avoided by travelling during another time or by choosing a service like Santiago Ways so that everything will be planned for us.

In any case, do not worry about the heat during the summer of northern Spain: doing the Camino de Santiago from Ourense, or from any of its variables, will be a good way to escape the heat of the rest of Spain.

Autumn

Autumn can offer us a dream spot during our pilgrimage from Ourense to Santiago de Compostela. Everything will be tinted in greens, yellows and browns that will accompany us until our arrival in Santiago. The downside is that the weather can be more unstable during this time and will require us to go well prepared.

Winter

There are many people who prefer the winter season to make the Camino de Santiago. This is because they avoid overcrowding and also enjoy a landscape that seems to adopt its most striking notes during this season.

It is, however, it is very important that you know that you must go well prepared to make the Camino de Santiago from Ourense, or from any other point, during a season characterized by low temperatures.

Guide to the places that you cannot miss on the Camino de Ourense to Santiago

We have also prepared some small tips and guidelines about places of interest and places to eat that we recommend for this stretch. At the same time, we will tell you about the chosen accommodation.

Places of interest

From Bandeira to Ponte Ulloa

It's one of the most rewarding hikes of all of the Camino. It passes between Pine trees and Eucalyptus trees in an absolutely spectacular atmosphere. It will be one of those moments when you are glad to have chosen to complete the Camino de Santiago.

Outeiro

It is a small village in the most classic Galician style with its granaries and typical buildings. It is located in a beautiful spot that will delight everyone. You can't leave without tasting their local pies with different specialities.

Where to sleep – The best lodgings

In Santiago Ways, we select the best accommodation to take care of you and that you can rest as you deserve after a long stage. We also take care of the aspect of your location to give you experiences that you never forget.

Where to eat – The best restaurants

A Taberna: Located in Ourense, this tavern is one of the most popular in the city thanks to the quality of its elaboration and the unmistakable traditional character of its Galician cuisine. You can't leave Ourense without going to make a visit.

We encourage you, as we have said before, to ask about the bread in the village of Cea and buy it. It will be able to accompany you for several days on the route thanks to its totally natural production process.

Origin of the Camino de Santiago from Ourense

The origin of this road is in the nature of its union. That's right: The Camino de Santiago from Ourense is part of what we call the Camino Sanabrés or Mozarabe. It is a road that acts as a node between different points of Spain that began during the time of the Reconquista.

Pilgrims from all parts of Spain came up to go and see the Tomb of Santiago the Apostle. They usually did it to ask for something or to fulfil a promise. It is also a very important centre that had to do with the celebration of pilgrimages, as well as the enclave of monasteries that were settling according to Arab repopulation.

In fact, it received the name of the Camino Mozarabe for that reason: by the number of visitors from other parts of Spain under Muslim domination that attended it and ended up populating the area.

So then, the most well-known figure of the Camino, which is the apostle, accompanies the image of sobriety that many of the pilgrims had at that time. It is not necessary to think any less that this route of the Camino de Santiago from Ourense was strictly religious.

It was, in fact, an artery of communication for various purposes, including, of course, trade. Nor should we think that at the time of which we spoke religious uniformity was a fact: many pagan hermits who travelled these ways worshipped their own gods.

The very presence of Santiago would make these beliefs disappear at a later date.

This was our first time in Spain and first time walking on a daily basis. Santiago Ways answered our many questions and concerns over many emails. We started our walk September 1st 2019 in Sarria and took 10 days to walk to Santiago de Compostela. Santiago Ways booked our lodging in 10 different places along with luggage transfers. We asked that all breakfasts,dinner and picnic lunch be included. Our accommodations varied from Albergues. Inns, Boutique hotel, to Bed and Breakfast. We truly enjoyed our picnic lunch as we could stop anywhere and enjoy the view. The accommodations - private room and private bathroom as we requested were not disappointing. We would recommend Santiago Way to anyone that needs some assistance in walking The Way.

I changed my itinerary about 10 times before finalizing my vacation, 2 weeks prior to my trip date. Santiago Ways (Sara Mateo) was so polite and understanding throughout the entire process. My wife and I loved our great 2 week walk on the Camino. Every reservation, baggage transfer, excursion and transportation worked out exactly as planned. Thank you Sara for our memorable vacation.

I have walked with Santiago Ways twice and have been impressed by their professionalism and services both times. I wanted to support a Spanish company for the walks, and found them to be a competitive option - in a crowded industry. Am planning to walk with them again as I’ve enjoyed my caminos so much!

We recently walked part of the Camino de Santiago Trail. Our trip was arranged by Santiago Ways. We were part of a larger group we had a tour guide and our luggage was transferred each day. Our trip was an immense success, everything went very smoothly and that in part was down to Veronica who arranged the trip. She was very helpful throughout the whole planning procedure even arranging for a private transfer from the airport to Sarria, our start point. I would recommend Santiago Ways and Veronica and would definitely use them again.

After comparing several agencies, our group of 7 decided to go with Santiago Ways for our first Camino experience as they offered an all round better price for our customised package that included insurance, meals, accommodation, luggage transfers and any required transportation to accommodation. The booking process was straightforward, they responded quickly to various enquiries and changes that we requested and they provided guidance on preparation and the Camino route which we referred to throughout our trip.We had a couple of issues including one of our group injuring her ankle but Santiago Ways were available 24 x 7 and they resolved everything efficiently including all communications required with local accommodation providers, taxis etc. which was very reassuring. Pilgrims we met who organised their accommodation en route had to deal with lack of accommodation in some locations and then they had to organise transport to and from the nearest hostels. We didn’t have any stress like this at all which left us free to enjoy the stunning scenery and great camaraderie on this wonderful trip. We will use Santiago Ways again and we can highly recommend them.

I booked my Camino de Santiago for Sept 2019 through Santiago Ways and the company made the experience absolutely wonderful. Vanessa Veiga was a pleasure to deal with, very professional and informative and made it very easy to arrange the entire trip. The accommodations and board booked through Santiago ways were amazing, we were very pleased with the diversity (B&B, hotel, hostel) of the accommodations along with the service and cleanliness of the accommodations. The luggage transfer worked flawlessly. I would rate Santiago Ways 10 out of 10 and recommend them to anyone looking to book their Camino.

I was so pleased with the trip Santiago Ways set up for me to Walk The Camino Francés. My first experience was when I requested a quote in October 2018 for a August 2019 walk. Ylenia went above and beyond to answer all our questions and to provide numerous options for me before I made my final decision on the trip. She was patient and thorough as I gathered information. Her follow up was amazing and her attention to detail was very assuring! Once I booked the trip she continued sending updates until we departed for Spain. Once we arrived in Spain Ylenia and the Operations team stayed in touch via email to answer any questions. The hotel accommodations for 39 days were all wonderful and the baggage transfer was perfect. Every day our bags were at the hotel by the time we arrived. One day my friend left her hat in the hotel room and Santiago Ways Operation team sent an email saying the hat would be waiting at our next hotel. That’s going “above and beyond”. I highly recommend using Santiago Ways for your Camino!!!!! We walked with numerous people who had used other companies and they all thought Santiago Ways had the best hotels. I’ve already referred a friend to them and definitely will use them for my next Camino. Thank you Santiago Ways!!!!!!!!

Celebrating 60th birthday, we walked 100 kilos for 10 days. No pain and no blisters. Santiago ways transported our luggage on time every day even we changed one of the hotel to Paradores. Taxis were always on time waiting for us. All hotels were clean, friendly and conveniently located. The food and buildings and history of each accommodations were all unique and wonderful! I will use Santiago ways for my next Camino. Andriana was very helpful. Thank you! Muchas Gracias!

We booked our "Camino" trip via this agency. Our agent was Vanessa and we are ecstatic with the service! The booking went very smoothly. All our questions were answered and all our wished addressed in a very quick manner. Actually, the agency had to ping us a few times via email and WhatsApp, as we were the ones too slow to answer them. They even made arrangements for us to take our dog on the trip and book the appropriate hotels. The luggage transfer was wonderful. We had a pickup from Santiago to our starting point on "Camino" that also worked perfectly. We can highly recommend the services of this agency. I have to admit that I have not compared prices and if there is something cheaper on the market, but the service we received here was impeccable. We had a wonderful trip and are planing to come back next year and walk another "Camino" again. Buen Camino everyone!

Walking the Camino was the best experience of my life! Partially because I had such a great support crew of Santiago Ways! I worked with Vanessa Veiga who organized my trip to suit my needs. When some details needed to be changed, she kindly worked with me to make it happen. My accommodations were all very different- from Casa Rurals to hostels to Pensions, but they were all excellent. The luggage transfer worked perfectly, too. I highly recommend this company to anyone planning to walk the Camino!

I used Santiago Ways on my first Camino in March this year. The trail that I did was from Vigo to Santiago de Compostela. The experience was truly fantastic ….. mainly because of Santiago Ways.My contact person at Santiago Ways was Vanessa Veiga. Right from the onset Vanessa was extremely helpful , sensitive and very attentive to all my requests. She responded swiftly to all my mails. She selected the right hotels which were excellent and the luggage always arrived on time.I am planning my second Camino next April and I would continue to use Santiago Ways and in particular Vanessa. Thanks a million Vanessa and continue the good work to all the pilgrims who want to experience a true Camino.Winston FernandezKuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Santiago Ways made it possible for me to do the pilgrimage. At 69 I did not like the idea of staying in a hostal, I like a bit of privacy and comfort! And I could not have done the walking while carrying my luggage. Adriana at Santiago Ways helped me work out my route and booked hotels and luggage transfers. Also, having them there in case I had any problems, was very reassuring. Adriana was only a phone call away. I recommend using Santiago Ways for anyone having doubts about doing the pilgrimage - they make it so much easier!

Vanessa was awesome and we loved Santiago Ways! We had a group of 8 college friends that were all around 50-years old. The deciding factor in choosing Santiago Ways was the group discount offered for groups of 6 or more. All other companies threshold for a discount was 10 people. Vanessa and the staff were awesome to work with throughout the process. We did the five day hike from Sarria to Santiago. We requested superior accommodations in places that were on the trail. The accommodations were top notch and 4 of the 5 places were directly on the trail. The exception was our night in Lavacolla in which we were .4 miles off the trail. It was our choice to stay in that location in order to have a shorter walk to Santiago on our final day so we could make the noon mass. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean each place was and they all had great bar and restaurant choices in close proximity - with the exception of Lavacolla so we recommend eating on-site - it was very good.

My family and I used Santiago Ways to organize our recent pilgrimage from Lisbon to Porto. They did an excellent job booking us (as much as possible) into wonderful, small, family-run hotels and coping with the many changes dictated by "group" travel. In addition, one of us was traveling by bicycle whilst the rest were walking, necessitating even more planning which Santiago Ways did with patience and grace. We recommend using Santiago Ways for Camino support and planning!!! Jan Schubert

My family and I (6 of us) just finished walking the Lisbon to Porto section of the Camino Portuguese. It was a wonderful experience for us. The hotels we were booked into were well chosen and the food was great. We also found the path to be well marked making way finding fairly easy. A great relief as we had heard it was not well marked. Our luggage was efficiently transferred each day and everything ran very smoothly. Thank you Santiago Ways! We would definitely recommend your services to our friends. Jill

We booked our El Camino with Santiago Ways and we were very lucky to have Silvia as our agent. She did a fantastic job organizing our trip, always promptly responding to our inquiries, impeccable English, all accommodations that she arranged for us were great, and our luggage was always delivered to the next location timely, before our arrivals to sites. I would definitely recommend Santiago Ways and ask for Silvia to be your representative.

This trip changed my life in ways I could not describe! I knew the hiking was going to be a challenge, but Santiago Ways made it so easy to plan and execute. They are truly the best and I am already planning my next trip with Santiago Ways and would not think of going anywhere else. Silvia Rivera was particularly helpful in the planning, as she answered all my questions patiently, and help me through the process. Great job, Guys, and I will see you next year!

Have just finished El Camino de Santiago from Sarria with the help of Santiago Ways. They have been extremely accesible from day one. The transfer of the luggage throught the five days was impecable, always finding the luggage in the room on every stage of the way. The food and lodging was very acceptable. If I were to do it again I would not hesitate to contact them once more for their assistance! "Buen camino".

Simply put - an incredible experience! This agency looks after every last detail. I walked the last 100 km of the Camino with their help and I definitely want to go back soon and do a longer part of the route. When that happens (which I hope is soon) I'll definitely be using Santiago Ways again! Thanks for everything.
