Setting off from the Gothic town of Sarria in North West Spain, you’ll wind your way up and down lush valleys and enchanting forests full of eucalyptus, fir and oak trees. You’ll encounter magnificent, man-made monuments and breath-taking natural landscapes, looking out for woodpeckers and taking in an amazing range of architecture built across centuries.
You’ll stop in rustic hamlets and traditional Spanish towns, with chances to gain insight into the current local lifestyle and the captivating cultural history of the pilgrimage.
Dating back to around the 10th century AD, the famous Camino de Frances actually begins in France and extends some 800km, but this final section gives a perfect alternative for time-tight trekkers.
You’ll, of course, end at the Holy city of Santiago, with a free day to explore its mix of ancient and modern architecture. 2021 marks the Holy Year of the Camino de Santiago, so the city will be more vibrant than ever! You can take in the towering spires of the cathedral and enormous statue celebrating Pope John Paul’s 1993 Holy Year visit, along with the striking contemporary art in the modern galleries.
