The Road used by the British
El English way starts in the city of Ferrol.
The first stage of the English Way will take us along the coast through an urban and industrial land. After our arrival in Neda we can decide if we are left wanting more, in which case we will have to follow another 15 km to the city of Pontedeume.
Today we will have another quiet day. In which we will have few slopes and go hand in hand with the general road. This allows us to have multiple establishments to rest and snack on.
A stage of pleasant layout that will pass through rural areas and lush forests. Halfway we can visit the city of Miño which has a shelter and all the necessary services for pilgrims. To end our day we will arrive at Betanzos where in addition to being able to enjoy a wonderful hostel we can visit its walls and its historic center.
Today we have before us the queen stage of the English Way. Unlike previous days it is advisable to bring water and food since we will have few populations in which to feed us.
Quiet stage that runs along asphalt or dirt tracks and mostly we will descend towards Sigüeiro. We will have abundant shops until A Street from there to Sigüeiro we will find ourselves without services.
And finally our desired end. We will arrive to Santiago seeing from the distance the towers of the Cathedral. The beginning of the stage passes through rural areas to end up crossing an industrial estate and finally travel the streets of the old town of Santiago to reach the Plaza del Obradoiro.
