The Camino Ingles (English Way) is one of the most popular Jacobean Routes among pilgrims arriving in Santiago.

Among its attractions we find its short duration (the English Way is covered in 3 or 5 stages), its good signage, its medium level of difficulty and an acceptable network of accommodation and services, among which is the Paq Mochila de Correos.

Ferrol and A Coruña are the current starting points of a Route whose origins lie in the sea, where pilgrims from northern Europe arrived. Today we invite you to discover its attractions through a Map with Top 10 things to see and do on the Camino Ingles.
