Camino Pilgrim™ Guides: Camino Inglés – Ferrol or A Coruña to Santiago de Compostela 2018/19, Johnnie Walker
The pilgrimage way to Compostela enjoyed widespread fame throughout medieval Europe. Land and sea alike were furrowed with routes rich in spirituality leading to Santiago de Compostela. The maritime routes drew pilgrims from Scandinavia, Flanders, England, Scotland and Ireland on their way to destinations such as Ribadeo, Viveiro, Ferrol and A Coruña. Blessed by an exceptionally strategic location, the latter two coastal enclaves are the starting points for the two alternative itineraries that make up the English Way.
This guide is a new update to this pertinent route traditionally used by English pilgrims, starting at either Ferrol (110km from Santiago) or A Coruña (75km), including the recent re-routing! If starting from A Coruña, ensure you have made up and documented the remaining 25km in your home country first to qualify for the compostela or certificado! Includes line maps, height profiles, photographs, accommodation details and facilities.
