Camino Ingles Articles

The Camino Ingles or English Camino is the historic Camino de Santiago route traditionally taken by the pilgrims of Northern Europe, in particular, Britain and Ireland. The Camino Ingles has two traditional starting points: the port cities A Coruña and Ferrol. This was the route traditionally taken by pilgrims from Northern Europe, Britain, and Ireland on their way to Santiago and it was also an important trading route. Even if A Coruña is a larger and more attractive town than Ferrol, only a few pilgrims start from there because it’s situated less than 110km from Santiago de Compostela. That means that if you are starting from A Coruña, you won’t qualify for a Pilgrim Certificate unless you have already completed the Celtic Camino in Ireland. Our selection of Camino Ingles articles will help inspire you to plan the perfect trip.
