A little more about the hiking terrain

The final section of the French Way from Sarria to Santiago is the most popular Camino of all the Camino routes in Spain. In 2019, 189,937 pilgrims walked the French Way and 96,124 pilgrims started their Camino from Sarria (Source: Pilgrim Office, Santiago de Compostela). As a result it is a very social route which has a special camaraderie spirit that you will not find on any other Camino route. This section offers beautiful walking trails through fairy tale-like forests and quaint rural Galician villages to end in the beautiful medieval city of Santiago de Compostela. This is a great Camino to choose for people walking the Camino for the first time as it is very social, well signposted and there are a good range of cafe and restaurant along this route to allow for breaks. This trip entitles you to receive the pilgrims Certificate of Completion or ‘Compostela’.
