This Jacobean pilgrimage route owes its name to the fact that it was the favourite route for English pilgrims on their way from the British Isles to Santiago de Compostela, who arrived by boat in Ferrol or La Coruna and then continued their journey on foot.
This alternative is ideal for those who prefer a quieter, calmer route and amidst the enchanting coastal landscapes, next to the estuaries of Ferrol and Betanzos, to the heart of rural Galicia dotted with several villages and towns with a wealth of history and culture.
