Finish your walk at Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, celebrating your accomplishment with fellow pilgrims from all over the world.
Arrive at any time.
Enjoy a short orientation walk around Madrid with a free day to explore. Opt to check out the world-famous museums, do some shopping or enjoy some fantastic food.
Other options for exploring the city include the Palacio Real, Real Jardin Botánico or Escorial. Experience more nightlife at the Plaza del Dos de Mayo, in the area known as Malasaña. Taste some sangria and dance to the latest music.
Travel to the charming town of Sarria by train. Take some free time to explore before meeting up with the rest of your group.
Hike from Sarria to Portomarín throughout the course of the day.
Pass through many lovely towns along the way and maybe choose to have a picnic in places such as Barbadelo, Renta or Ferreiros.
Early start from Portomarin, continue walking through fantastic scenery with a rich history en route to Palas de Ray.

Continue walking through rural Spain. Take a break in the lively market town of Melide (454m), and try octopus, Galicia's most classic dish, in one of the many 'pulperías'.
