This first stage is characterized by a continuous path of steep ascents and descents, which first will lead to the top of San Roque where the statue of Pilgrim welcoming us. From here, always contemplating a barren landscape of high but gentle mountains, dotted with abandoned villages, churches that make up a typical landscape of stone and austere Romanesque style; traverse Hospital, O Padornelo and Fonfría, to continue down by stony paths up to Fillobal and later to Triacastela.

3° Day. Triacastela – Sarria (19 km).

Breakfast. The The route that we undertake today offers beautiful scenery and numerous examples of Galician architecture. He addresses the Monastery of Samos, one of the oldest Western (6th century) and from there to the town of Samos.

From here, we can only cross Gorolfe, and Reiriz guided to get into the Villa de Sarria.

4° Day. Sarria – Portomarín (22 km).

Breakfast. The twenty-seventh day is for a good part of the walkers, as Sarria is very close to the mythical last 100 kilometers and the minimum distance to be traveled on foot to win the Compostela. The stage does not disappoint at all the first or the experienced pilgrim. It offers countless villages of the Concellos of Sarria, Paradela and Portomarin, good examples of Romanesque neighborhood paved tracks, trails and rural corridors, medieval bridges, rustic bridges ...

5° Day. Portomarín – Palas de Rei (24 km).

Breakfast. The stage is fractionated between Ligonde mointain, which in turn divides the basins of the rivers Miño and Ulloa and Concellos of Portomarín and Monterroso.

8° Day. Arzúa – O Pino / Amenal (19 km).

Breakfast. Between Arzúa and the cathedral of Santiago there is nearly 40 kilometers and the most logical and prudent way to divide the section is by doing stop and inn in Santa Irene or in O Pedrouzo.

Today’s stage is short and takes us to the town of Lavacolla. Upon reaching the top, you pass by the airport and begin the gentle descent to Lavacolla. By Lovacolla passes a stream that the ancient pilgrims used to wash and purify themselves before reaching Santiago de Compostela. Lavacolla, as in the term of Santiago, is located close to the Monte do Gozo, a small hill from which pilgrims have the first view of the Cathedral of Santiago.The Monte do Gozo, converted into the Xacobeo 93 in a area for pilgrims, has a large monument on its summit, the source and the chapel of San Marcos. From here, the journey is almost urban, coming to the Cathedral through the San Lazaro neighborhood, Rúa de San Pedro, Door of the Camino, Rua das Casas Reais and Plaza de Cervantes, loss and directly access to the cathedral through the Holy Door, or if no Holy Year from the Azabachería.
