Our tours along the English Way to Santiago de Compostela

In the years following its recovery, Galicia had two alternative routes of the English Way: a route from A Coruña (the branch is also known as Camino de Faro) and another from Ferrol.

Both routes are popular and meet halfway in the town of San Lorenzo de Bruma before joining together for the remaining 40 km (3 stages) to Compostela. The routes are full of attractions and history.

History and heritage mark the 120 kilometers from Ferrol to Santiago de Compostela. Although less known, this pilgrimage is short, pleasant, and well-signposted. This route has become an increasingly attractive option.

Ferrol and A Coruña are attractive cities which are both gateways to the English route. But If you want to learn about the English history of the Camino, a visit to Pontedeume or Betanzos is essential.

The yellow arrows and classic cairns provide sufficient signage. Although there are only five public shelters, there are plenty of hotels and private lodgings to cover a pilgrim’s needs.
