What is the Camino Ingles? An Introduction to the English Way.
What is the Camino Ingles? The Camino Ingles or English Camino is the historic Camino de Santiago route taken by pilgrims coming from Northern Europe, in particular, Britain and Ireland, and it was also a very important trading route.
What is the starting point of the Camino Ingles?
The Camino Ingles has two starting points: A Coruña and Ferrol.
Even if A Coruña is a larger and more attractive town than Ferrol, only a few pilgrims start from there, because it is situated less than 100 kilometres2 from Santiago de Compostela.
The Camino Ingles from Ferrol
The first two walking days of the Camino Ingles from Ferrol are beautiful, as you weave along with the coast soaking in the seaside views.
The towns you visit along the way are quaint and pretty, with Pontedeume and Betanzos being particular highlights.
You can sit and rest or take a cooling dip at A Magdalena beach as you make your way between towns. Betanzos town is full of history and wonder, and you will have a great time exp0lring its historical buildings.
Bruma Meson do Vento and Sigüeiro are your final two stops before you reach the sacred City of Santiago de Compostela. The landscape in the lush green area of Ordes on the way to the Church of San Xiao is an idyllic taste of the countryside and your last rural experience on this Camino route.
