Benvenuti a Santiago! Ci sono un sacco di cose da vedere e da fare qui; è vivamente consigliato trascorrerci almeno una giornata intera aggiuntiva per esplorarne il dedalo di stradine, che sembrano portare tutte alla Cattedrale. Davanti alla Cattedrale troverete il chilometro zero, contrassegnato...
Attenzione: 
Fate attenzione per quanto riguarda l’alloggio. Se arrivate a Santiago in alta stagione è consigliato prenotare in anticipo. Nonostante ci siano state alcune new entry nella lista degli albergues negli ultimi anni, il numero di pellegrini in alta stagione è ancora straripante.
Festività: 

Il giorno di San Giacomo si festeggia con un’intera settimana di musica e balli e con spettacolari fuochi d’artificio in Plaza Obradoiro la sera del 24 luglio. La visuale migliore la si ha da Obradoiro o dal parco Alameda.

Il cammino: 

The start of the camino to Finisterre is poorly marked, and the fading yellow arrows are hard to find. Fortunately, the way is easy to describe and is very brief; you will be in the forest in less than 1km. 

Facing the Parador (with the Cathedral to your right) exit the square along the...

Heavy traffic here. 

Attenzione: 
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...

The albergue is about half way through town and a bit (400-500m) off the camino.

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...

Il cammino: 

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...

The highlight of Ponte Maceira is the bridge over the Río Tabmre.  If not that, then the río itself.  For legal reasons I cannot advise you to swim in the river, but I can tell you that if you waited until the late afternoon to do so you would not be alone.  I can also tell you it is quite...

Storia: 

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...

Attenzione: 
The one bar/restaurant in town is closed every Wednesday.
Il cammino: 

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...

Il cammino: 

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 basic necessities but does not do much to advertise.  It is on your left and there are stacks of empty bottles to give it away.

Il cammino: 

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.
