Camino del Norte from Vilalba to Santiago Last 100km
The last stage of the Camino del Norte from Vilalba to Santiago, the last 100km of the Northern Way, takes pilgrims from the market town of Vilalba and across Galicia’s farmland and lush countryside all the way to Santiago de Compostela.
On the last stage of the Camino del Norte from Vilalba, you will enjoy walking through the forest, basking in the green countryside, and visiting very scenic landmarks along the way. If you are interested in history, there are many historical monuments for you to visit.
One of the highlights of this trip is the magnificent 10th-century monastery in Sobrado dos Monxes. There are many old and interesting churches to visit along the way and you will learn much about the history of Spain and religion.
This first part of the Camino is very scenic and quiet and a perfect time to unwind and relax in nature.
In the second half of this Camino route, you will be joining the famous Camino Frances in Arzúa. Therefore, you get the best of both worlds: a less-travelled path on the Camino del Norte and the most popular and social trail on the Camino Frances.
Don’t forget to sample the delicious cheeses of Arzúa before you leave!
Then it is on to the famous Monte do Gozo (Mount of joy) where you will catch your first glimpse of the Cathedral at Santiago de Compostela – your finish point.
Since you will be walking over 100km, don’t forget to stamp your pilgrim passport and request your Compostela certificate when you reach Santiago!
*You also have the option to start from the coastal town of Ribadeo, where you can explore the impressive Cathedrals Beach.
