CAMINO INGLES APRIL 2016 from FERROL TO SANTIAGO 118Km
Traditionally pilgrims from England and Ireland sailed to a Spanish port such as Ferrol and walked from there to Santiago. The modern day camino is marked from the port. Take care of your own travel arrangements and accommodation. For more detail see www.csj.org.uk You can download a guide for all the caminos from this website or order the booklet.
