Bono Iacobus English Way from A Coruña
The English Way emerged from pilgrims coming from northern Europe. They arrived by ship and docked at the ports of Ferrol or A Coruña to begin their journey towards the Cathedral of Santiago.
For this reason, although both are referred to by the same name, they are actually two different routes. One is shorter, starting from A Coruña, and the other is longer, originating from Ferrol.
In the latest records collected by the Pilgrim's Office, we can see that this route was chosen by 6% of walkers, which means that more than 10,000 people have enjoyed it.
This time, we propose reproducing the itinerary starting from A Coruña and covering the nearly 75 km that separate the two cities. It is an ideal route for those who want to walk one of the official Camino paths without covering long distances.
In addition, we suggest traveling it by staying in a special way with the Bono Iacobus.
What is the Bono Iacobus?
It is a tourist service specific to the Camino de Santiago that allows you to travel some of its routes, staying overnight in a different rural tourism house each night.
