Pambretours inaugurates its new route “Camino Primitivo”

More than two years ago Pambretours began its journey through the most historic roads of Galicia, those that are part of one of the oldest and most traveled religious pilgrimages in Europe: the Camino de Santiago.

We want to continue sharing unforgettable moments with you and enrich your experience as pilgrims by showing you new ways to discover Compostela. For this reason, we are inaugurating our new tour “Camino Primitivo” which we will tell you about next.

What is the Primitive Way?

It is the ideal starting point to discover the path of the first known Way, the one undertaken by Alfonso II, the Chaste, in the 4th century to visit the tomb of the Apostle Santiago.

What is different about this route?

Although the French Way (which originally started from Roncesvalles) is still the busiest due to its infrastructure and services, there are other equally interesting and less crowded alternatives (something that is especially appreciated in the summer months).

The Primitive Way has the charm of being, historically, the first route traveled. It is also perfectly signposted. Even the most wooded and difficult areas have been cleared.

If you want to enjoy the view of evergreen valleys, we recommend you to discover the natural and scenic richness of the Camino Primitivo: ancient oak trees, megalithic sites, military fortifications and Roman bridges.

As in most of the Jacobean routes, the religious architecture is profuse and abundant. Among the temples and monuments worth visiting are the Cathedral of Santa María and the wall of Lugo (which is part of the cultural assets inscribed by UNESCO as World Heritage of Humanity), the Roman bridge of Lugo, the temple of Santa Eulalia de Bóveda (4th century), declared a National Monument and through which passes the Roman bridge of Lugo, the temple of Santa Eulalia de Bóveda (4th century) declared National Monument and through which passes the Roman road of the 19th century that linked Braga with Lugo, the Church of San Román de la Retorta and, already in Melide, the Benedictine monastery of San Antoniño de Toques and its pre-Romanesque church of the 9th century.

At the end of our journey awaits us, as it could not be otherwise, the solemn vision of the Cathedral of Santiago, considered by many as one of the most beautiful religious temples in the world, and which symbolizes the end of our goal as pilgrims.
