Choose the English Way tour, from Ferrol to Santiago

The English Way has this name because it was the preferred path for those pilgrims coming from Northern Europe, from England, Ireland or the Scandinavian countries.

In the past those nordic pilgrims, after a long journey by boat, they used to disembark in the port of Ferrol or Coruña, and from there they continued their way walking to Santiago de Compostela.

Nowadays, pilgrims who want to qualify for the Compostela Certificate they would need to start in Ferrol and walk at least 100 km.

We recommend this alternative route to those pilgrims who want to stay away from the crowds and enjoy the peace and the quiet.

Tour’s Programs

Arrival in Ferrol, starting point of the English Way.
The first walking day is the longest one; it is possible to split it in two walking days.
We recommend visiting the port of Ferrol before leaving the city and stop at the Monastery of San Martiño de Xubia in Neda, right on the way.
This is a coastal stretch, with pleasant views.
Before reaching Betanzos we will be able to visit the church of San Pantaleón de las Viñas, an iconic point of the English Way.
This is a quiet walking day, through small rural areas; some of it will be in parallel to the river.
There is a mix of paved roads and unpaved rural paths.
The route will take us through small rural villages, leaving behind chapels and Cruceiros (transepts).
The last walking days is only 12 km long. This will allow you to arrive in Santiago early enough to enjoy the city. From Sigüeiro, you will feel the presence of the cathedral in the distance.

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).
You visit Santiago.
