Camino Ingles

The English Way To Santiago De Compostela

Camino Ingles

The Camino Ingles offers the choice of two starting points, A Coruna and Ferrol. Historically, A Coruna would have been the more popular start but it is less that the required 100 kilometres from Santiago de Compostela, meaning it does not qualify for a Compostela.

Top Tip : You can start in A Coruna if you complete 25 kilometres of certified pilgrimage in your home country.

The Camino Ingles is sometimes called The English Way or the Forgotten Camino. It is certainly the shortest complete Camino, ending at the steps of the Cathedral in the iconic city of Santiago de Compostela.

The Galician authorities have been working hard to promote the Camino Ingles and it’s enjoying a little renaissance and gaining popularity. I’d read conflicting reports about this route and having now walked from Ferrol, I’m a keen advocate of the Camino Ingles and I look forward to my next visit.

I started in Ferrol and I loved this Camino. I’ve written a series of posts to help other would-be pilgrims enjoy this glorious walk and remove some of the uncertainties they may have read elsewhere.
