Easter is an amazing time to experience the Camino de Santiago. Locals love Easter and many towns host colourful, lively presentations and displays. We have three very special guided tours for Easter 2019:
APRIL 13TH- CLASSIC CAMINO – SARRIA TO SANTIAGO
The group of Camino adventurers will travel 111km on foot from Sarria to Santiago de Compostella. This is the most popular section of all the Camino routes.
You will be arriving in Santiago de Compostela on Good Friday, one of the central days of celebration in the city. Visit the old town in the evening to experience two magnificent processions: ‘Santo Entierro’ in the Church of San Domingos de Bonaval at 8pm and the Virgen de la Soledad procession taking place at 11pm from Church of Santa Maria Salome.
