Willkommen in Santiago! In Santiago de Compostela gibt es sehr viel zu sehen und zu tun; dazu sollte man mindestens einen zusätzlichen Tag zu Erkundungen im Netzwerk der Straßen einplanen, die Sie alle zur Kathedrale zurückzubringen scheinen. Als PilgerIn beginnen Sie wahrscheinlich ihren Rundgang...
Hinweis: 
Ein Wort der Vorsicht in Bezug auf die Unterkunft: Wenn Sie in der Hauptsaison ankommen, sollten Sie im Voraus reservieren. Es entstanden zwar viele neue Herbergen, aber die Zahl der PilgerInnen übersteigt in der Hochsaison immer noch die Kapazität.

Der Festtag des Heiligen Jakobus wird mit einer ganzen Woche voller Musik und Tanz gefeiert, mit einem Feuerwerk auf dem Plaza Obradoiro am Abend des 24. Juli. Die beste Aussicht hat man vom Obradoiro oder vom Alameda Park.

2.50km → Quintáns
Seehöhe:

Heavy traffic here. 

Hinweis: 
Pay attention here. Although the route is well marked, it is still quite common for pilgrims to keep on following the road. If that happens to you, there is no need to retrace your steps. Keep on going to the next road (recognizable for the large stone wall) and turn right, followed by the next...
Wegbeschreibung: 

Turn right at the bus stop / Hórreo.

Wegbeschreibung: 

When you arrive at the main road of Quintáns, the camino turns left and then immediately right again... watch out for the arrows.

At the same intersection with the main road there is a bar 50m on your right.

Seehöhe:

There is a bar where the camino emerges into town.

Wegbeschreibung: 

The camino crisscrosses the main road and follows safer side streets. Keep an eye out for yellow arrows near a small bus stop that takes you to the right. If you miss it and walk too far, stay on the road and keep an eye out for a yellow arrow that will take you left. If you miss that one, just...

Bar and pharmacy on your right. Check out the vines above the bar patio; they are a combination of grapes and kiwi.

Wegbeschreibung: 

The road from Ventosa to Aguapesada is straight and along the road. Beyond Aguapesada, it follows a quiet track and road up and into the forest. The climb here is fairly steep. The towns between here and Ponte Maceira are of little note, and there is only one bar directly along this stretch. You...

There is a bar in O Reino, which technically is a bit off of the camino to your left. Useful if the bar in Trasmonte was closed or if you prefer taking the path less traveled.

The highlight of Ponte Maceira is the bridge over the Río Tambre. If not that, then the río itself. The river here is a popular swimming hole for the locals and is cold and refreshing for the feet. If you do chose to swim, mind the currents.

Ponte Maceira is one of the most...

Geschichte: 

The heavily disputed legend of the translatio tells us that it was here that the disciples of Santiago, fleeing their Roman captors, were aided by divine intervention. Upon crossing the bridge the center span gave away, stranding the Romans on the other side. This legend, which some...

Hinweis: 
The one bar/restaurant in town is closed every Wednesday.
Wegbeschreibung: 

Cross over the bridge and follow the road out of town. As is common in these parts, the camino will continue to parallel the main road, crossing and then crossing back through the village of Barca. It feels un-necessary but it keeps you away from the traffic. Negreira is the next city of note...

The Xunta albergue is on the far end of town, be sure to pick up supplies if you are not keen on walking back. All services are available in town.

Geschichte: 

“Because I am not inscribed from Noya but from Negreira, where I was born. And from Negreira, which is up the river Tambre, they take you for the army.” - a soldier to his corporal, excerpt from ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ by Ernest Hemingway.

Hemingway lived for a short time in...

Wegbeschreibung: 

The camino leaves Negreira near the municipal albergue on the West side of town. If you stayed in that albergue, go back towards town a short distance and follow the signs to the church. If you are an early morning (in the dark) walker, do yourself a favor and scout the route the night before....

There may or may not be a bar open in Zas, it is also a shop for necessities but does not do much to advertise. It is on your left, and the last time I was there asking for a coffee (July, 2018) I was told to keep on going to Peña.

Wegbeschreibung: 

You enter Zas along the road, but leave it at the bar mentioned above. The town is small, and you will very quickly find that the camino follows a nice country trail all the way to O Rapote.
