Camino Inglés (The English Way)

Sigüeiro - Santiago de Compostela

16,5 km Difficulty
This is the last section before the exhilarating arrival at the Praza do Obradoiro. You need to leave Sigüeiro through the Calle Real. You have four hours ahead of you, first crossing the bridge over the river Tambre. The path runs parallel to the river until A Barciela, where it continues towards the industrial park of O Tambre.

Here you have to follow Vía Galileo, towards the Cruceiro da Coruña and the area of Meixonfrío, already in Santiago. From here you continue towards the Avenida de Castelao and the rúa Xoán XXIII, to access the old town through Pastoriza, a parallel street to your left.

The convent of Santa Clara and the Rúa Loureiros lead you to the so-called Porta da Pena, which ends in San Martiño Pinario. The Acibechería, located next to it, is already by Santiago  Cathedral.

Here 10 things to do in Santiago.

Tips from our postmen and women

 José Manuel González, Correos of Santiago
“This Route enters through the so-called Porta da Pena, one of the seven entry gates to Santiago de Compostela, a street leading to the church of San Martín Pinario. Beware! Many pilgrims think this is the Cathedral! You have to walk past it and continue along the Rúa da Azabachería. The street bears this name as this is where the “azabacheros”, the guild of jet carvers, used to work. Jet is the magical stone of the Camino and it is supposed to have some healing qualities”.  José Manuel González, Correos of Santiago.
