Camino Ingles From Ferrol to Santiago Last 100km
The Camino Ingles from Ferrol to Santiago Last 100km (or the Camino English Way) was traditionally the preferred route for pilgrims coming from the British Isles and Ireland on their way to Santiago de Compostela, hence its name.
Historically, thousands of pilgrims would arrive by boat at the ports of Ferrol or A Coruña, and they would then continue their pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela on foot.
They would follow an ancient 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 to visit the relics of St. James.
The coastal city of Ferrol is also home to one of the most important Easter festivals in Galicia: Semana Santa de Ferrol (pictured). If you are travelling in Spring, make sure you catch some impressive processions during ‘Holy Week’. Easter is a significant festival in Spain and is a spectacular sight worth a visit to enjoy this tradition.
