Spain- The Camino - Sarria to Santiago de Compostela.

Spain- The Camino - Sarria to Santiago de Compostela.

The last 5 walking days to reach Santiago from Sarria

El Camino Frances or French Route, starts in France near the Spanish border in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, goes down to Navarra and Pais Vasco and continues to Castila Leon to finally ends in Galicia at the extrem western point of Europe.

This is a 6 day section that we propose here, starting in Sarria and ending in Santiago de Compostela.

After weeks of sunburned lands, the footpath reaches Galicia! Green cultivated lands, corn and rye fields, vineyards, forests, torrent-like rivers, Galicia is a Celtic region from another time and is the end of the road, arriving in Santiago and bathing in the unforgettable fraternal atmosphere that reigns here.

Day 2

Sarria - Portomarin – 21.5 km – 5h30 walk.
After a short drive from Samos to Sarria, the way crosses over a medieval bridge and through a Chestnut tree forest, from one hamlet to another linked by trails bordered by high stonewalls. In Portomarin the San Juan fortified church is worth the visit.
