From Lugo to Santiago de Compostela

We can also call the Camino as fraternity. Sharing: life and restlessness, abundance and scarcity, spreading and increasing values, as well as sharing our faults and overcoming them.

Tranquil path – so much that we could encounter deer

We start in Lugo, a scenic Galician town at the Camino Primitivo, the first Camino ever. It is surrounded by a walk-on city wall. We cross the Rio Miño and embark on a small tranquil way that leaves us off the large routes to allow a quiet setting and a big dose of nature for our first two days. In Sobrado dos Monxes we will reach the Camino del Norte and sleep at the monastery in the pilgrims albergue and let us touch by the sung vespers.

After one stage on the Camino del Norte we will reach the Camino Francés and merge into the large stream of pilgrims that will accompany us the last two days to Santiago de Compostela. We will visit the churches of Arzua and Pedrouzo. The last walking day we get up very early to be on time for the pilgrims mass in the soul elating cathedral of Santiago de Compostela at noon.

In Santiago we will collect your Compostela and enjoy arrival on the amazing Praça de Obradoiro and let feelings flow – whatever they are.
