The Camino ingles Cycling from Ferrol or English Way by bike was traditionally the preferred route for pilgrims coming from the British Isles and Ireland on their way to Santiago de Compostela, hence its name. Pilgrims used to arrive by boat at the ports of Ferrol or A Coruña, and they would then continue their journey to Santiago on foot. They would follow a trail along the rugged coastline, passing historic towns such as Pontedeume and Betanzos, before continuing inland across the green countryside and woodlands of rural Galicia on their way to Santiago de Compostela and its famous cathedral.
The coastal city of Ferrol is also hosting one of the most important Easter festivals in Galicia: Semana Santa de Ferrol (pictured). If you are traveling in Spring, make sure you catch some of the impressive processions taking place during ‘Holy Week’. This is a great Camino cycling trip.
