Cammino di Santiago – Routes

Camino Inglés

Route Information

General Description: The short direct route used by English or northern European pilgrims arriving in Galicia by sea. 110 km from Ferrol to Santiago or 75 km from A Coruña (too short to earn a compostela). The former route is typically walked in five days, the latter in three.

Waymarking: The Confraternity of Saint James website says “The route is very well waymarked with a mixture of yellow arrows, shell tiles and marker stones.”

Terrain: The countryside is reminiscent to that of Brittany and Cornwall. There is a high percentage of road walking, especially near towns.

When to go: The Camino inglés is passable year round except that November through the end of February is not recommended. Climate tables for Santiago de Compostela and A Coruña.

Accommodation: There are only a few pilgrim-dedicated albergues (in Neda, Miño and Bruma) but there are cheap and medium priced hotels in several places.
