The Way of St. James French Route
We'll meet at the Plaza de Galicia at 9 am to start our tour of the French Way of St. James. In just one day, you'll get to know the most important villages that belong to this part of the route, which attracts thousands of pilgrims every year. Let's go!
We'll head to O Cebreiro, the starting point of the French Way of St. James in Galicia, where the landscape turns green and the final stretch begins for walkers. Here we'll walk through the streets of this pretty village and see its medieval houses.
Following the route, we'll reach the Monastery of Samos. We'll get to know the interior of this temple with a guided tour during which you'll find out about the history of what was and still is an important location for pilgrims.
After the visit to the monastery, the tour will continue to Sarria. Here you'll have free time for lunch, before strolling through this town where many start their pilgrimage. Our next stop will be in Portomarín. Did you know that this village changed its location? We'll find out why!
Our next stop will be Monte do Gozo, known as the balcony of the Camino de Santiago. Here we'll admire the whole city of Santiago with its Cathedral as a backdrop.
To finish the route, we'll give you the option of walking the last 5 kilometres of the route. At 7 pm we'll arrive at the Obradoiro square, as all pilgrims do when they reach their final destination.
