Overview

A route full of History, culture and traditions!

The Way of Saint James offers an original and different way of sightseeing in northern Spain. You’ll discover monuments, charming towns and villages and spectacular natural attractions. In this tour you will be walking through traditional Galician villages, beautiful oak woodlands, magical valleys and perfumed forests.
Some people are inspired by an interest in culture, others do it out of a spiritual conviction, yet others love the chance of adventure or approach it as a personal challenge… but whatever your reason, the Way to Santiago will be unforgettable!
If you wish to get your Compostela, or certificate from the Camino office in Santiago, you need walking at least 100 kilometers. The most convenient point to begin from to do this is Valença do Minho.
Explore the region of Galicia, famous for its people, rich patrimony, great food and its wines.
