CAMINO INGLES TOURS
There are two main starting points on the Camino Ingles route:
Located 120kms away from Santiago de Compostela, Ferrol is the most popular starting point on this route as you will need 100kms on foot to receive your Compostela pilgrim certificate.
It is also possible to receive a certificate if you walk from the wonderful seaside city of A Coruña which is 75kms away from Santiago but you’ll need to complete 25kms in Ireland beforehand, and show your Irish Compostela issued by the Camino Society in Dublin as proof. This option is known as the ‘Celtic Camino’.
