Arrival to Sarria, beginning of the last 100Km of the French Way.
Day 2: Sarria – Portomarín (22 km)
The peaceful route from Sarria to Portomarín will take you through small villages, lovely landscapes and past Romanesque churches. At the end of the stage (22Km) you will arrive in Portomarín, which is one of the most beautiful villages of this part of the Camino.
Day 3: Portomarín – Palas de Rei (25 km)
Today you will start walking through a pine forest, and the route will take you through many picturesque hamlets. The most interesting Romanesque church you will find is Santa María de Castromayor, after Portomarin.
By the end of the stage you will get to Palas de Rei, one of the most emblematic stops of the French Way.
Day 4: Palas de Rei – Melide (14 km)
This walking day is a bit shorter, so you will have time to stop and contemplate some of the hamlets you will pass by on the way. Once in Melide, we strongly recommend to try the traditional octopus (pulpo in Spanish). You will see many pulperías around!
Day 5: Melide – Arzúa (15 km)
One of the most interesting points is the medieval town of Ribadiso, just before Arzúa, one of the most beautiful spots.
Once you get to Arzúa we recommend you taste the local typical cheese!
Day 6: Arzúa – Pedrouzo (19 km)
The walk will take you through eucalyptus forests, charming villages and across small rivers. We strongly recommend you visit the Chapel of Santa Irene, which is a very common stop among pilgrims.
Pedrouzo is quite small and during high season most of the accommodation can be fully booked. But do not worry, we have many different options in the area, which are also very popular.
Day 7: Pedrouzo – Santiago (20 km)
Finally, we get to the last walking day of the Camino. You will be able to observe from the top of the hill, “Monte do Gozo”, the lovely city of Santiago de Compostela, and its beautiful cathedral, your ultimate goal.
Many pilgrims stop there just before descending, recalling the best moments of an adventure that is about to finish.
When you get to Santiago do not forget to go to the Pilgrim’s Office with your Pilgrim Passport if you want to get your “Compostela” (Pilgrim Certificate).
