Day 2 A Rua to Lavacolla6.8 Miles / 11 Km 3-4 Hrs 270 Metres
Your first day on the Camino brings you through some little villages, woodlands and open country along quiet paths and tracks. Not far from Santiago de Compostela you come to the village of Lavacolla where it is said that, after weeks or months of travelling, pilgrims traditionally bathed in the local stream to purify themselves before their arrival in Santiago.Please note that, in order to create a gentle walking tour, these two hikes are very short and can each be completed in 3 hours. If you feel that this may be too short, you should have a look at our moderate level Camino tours. Alternatively, we can modify the tour so that you can complete the walk from A Rua to Santiago in one day. Please just mention this on your Booking Form and we will make the modification for you.
Day 3 Lavacolla to Santiago de Compostela6.2 Miles / 10 Km 3-4 Hrs 190 Metres
From Lavacolla the Camino soon reaches the top of Monte do Gozo, the Hill of Joy. Here is the place where pilgrims can get their first view of their destination, the spires of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. The end of your walk then leads you through medieval streets and past grand squares, fountains, palaces and churches before you arrive at the magnificent cathedral.
Day 4 Departure from Santiago de Compostela
