Sarria to Santiago is the most popular section of the most popular Camino route – the final 115km of the Camino Francés. Sarria is the 1st town on this route that is more than 100km from Santiago – enough to qualify you for your “compostela” certificate for officially having completed the Camino.
This walk takes you through the rolling hills of Galicia – similar to much of the Irish countryside in many respects. A moderate level of fitness will do; it’s a walk that’s well within the compass of most.
More than any other section of the Camino, this final section from Sarria is all about people – you will find yourself in the middle of an eclectic mix of groups and individuals, from Spain and from abroad, those who begin in Sarria and those who have walked hundreds of kilometres from their various starting points. You will pass through farmyards and forest of eucalyptus and pine, while the many stopping points along the route make this the most social of Camino routes.
Along the way, you pass through the towns of Portomarín, Palas de Rei, Melide, Arzúa and Pedrouzo, each with their own character and with a variety of restaurants and cafes. Whether you opt for the “Menu del Día” dinner option or indulge in the seafood and vino delights of Galicia, you won’t be short of choice when it comes to wining and dining.
