It is the first pilgrimage route to Santiago, the oldest. It links Oviedo with Santiago de Compostela and runs largely along Roman road layouts.

The first pilgrim King was precisely the Asturian-Galician monarch Alfonso II “El Casto”, who, in the first third of the 9th Century, wanted to travel to Santiago to confirm that the remains that had just appeared in Compostela were really those of the Apostile. At Pambretours we decided top ay tribute to this ancient route and to the city of Lugo a city with two thousand years and three World Heritage Sites declared by the Unesco; the Camino itself, the Cathedral and the Roman Wall that surrounds the old part of the town.
