The Camino Ingles was the route followed by the pilgrims of western and northern Europe, especially from the British Isles, hence their name, and arriving by sea to the ports of Ferrol and A Coruña. The Camino de Santiago Ingles extends from Ferrol to Santiago, and is a beautiful route that allows you to enjoy both the coastal landscape and beautiful greens in the interior.
It is an ideal itinerary to enjoy the calm and get away from crowds. You will pass through villages of great historical tradition such as Pontedeume or Betanzos.
If you do not have much time, a good alternative is to make the Camino Ingles from A Coruña, also known as Camino dos Faros, but in this case you will not be able to obtain the Compostela since it does not reach 100km.
Arrival in Ferrol, a city historically important for its fishing activity as well as for its commercial port and shipyards.
In the first stage you will enjoy the views of the estuary to reach the town of Neda later. There you can spend the night or follow your Camino to Pontedeume.
Short stages option, Easy Camino: If you have opted for this itinerary option you can divide this stage into two stages with less route , spending a night in Neda , where you can take advantage to visit its historical center of high cultural value. The first 15 Km stage will take you from Ferrol to Neda, and the second 14 Km from Neda to Pontedeume.
Without a doubt today will be one of the best stages. You will continue your path along the coast with spectacular views over Betanzos, Ares and Ferrol. It is not an easy stage, but when you get to Betanzos and see that it is one of the most charming cities in Galicia, you will also discover that the effort has been worthwhile.
We will continue our Camino Ingles in a stage of ascent in the middle of the tranquility of a pleasant rural environment. We will meet the towns of Matino and Boucello, and we will also pass through the abandoned Hermitage of San Paio. Finally we will arrive at the village of Bruma, where its popular medieval hospital and the Hermitage of San Lorenzo is located.
We will continue our journey leaving Bruma to enter the green village of Ordes, passing through the church of San Xiao de Poulo and small towns like Casanova until we reach Sigüeiro, on the banks of the River Tambre.
We leave Sigüeiro from across the bridge over the Tambre River to undertake our stage that will end in the city of Santiago de Compostela until we reach its magnificent Cathedral in the Plaza del Obradoiro.
It is time to explore the splendid city of Santiago de Compostela, its historic center and countless examples of history and culture that have led it to be part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. We recommend including some extra night to have more time to discover the city with guided tours or to Finisterre.
