Celtic Camino From A Coruna Last 75km

The Celtic Camino from A Coruna takes you the Last 75km to Santiago de Compostela. You must walk 25km home to get your certificate (see below). It was traditionally the preferred route for pilgrims from the British Isles and Ireland to Santiago de Compostela, hence its name.

Pilgrims would enter A Coruna or Ferrol by boat and then make the rest of the pilgrimage to Santiago by foot to visit the relics of St. James.

Early pilgrims would have arrived by boat at the port A Coruña, guided in by the Tower of Hercules – this famous Roman lighthouse, which can still be seen today at the end of the Peninsula, sheltering the city from wild Atlantic winds and waves. It is a must-see while in A Coruna.

From A Coruña, these early pilgrims would have continued on foot from the rugged Galician coastline, passing historic towns before continuing inland across the green countryside and woodlands of rural Galicia on their way to Santiago de Compostela and its famous cathedral.

As this route is only 75kms, it can be combined with a 25km pilgrimage in Ireland (such as the Kerry Camino) or in Scotland to obtain your Compostela. This is known as the Celtic Camino. It is also possible to combine with a walk in the UK, and the Confraternity of St James has a list of approved hikes on its website.

We recommend booking additional nights to explore the wonderful city of A Coruña and take your time to get a feel for the place.
