Walking the Portuguese Coastal Route - First Stretch: (8 days)

Walking the Portuguese Coastal Route - First Stretch: (8 days)

Historical records show that in Medieval times, pilgrims arriving from Ireland, England and other Northern countries disembarked in A Coruna and other ports along the North of Spain such as Ferrol. Over the years, these routes became known as the Camino Ingles. However, given the close historical connection between Ireland and Santiago, the Pilgrim Centre in Santiago, the local authority in A Coruna, and the Camino Society of Ireland have designated a walking pilgrimage which starts in Ireland and continues from A Coruna to Santiago, the CELTIC CAMINO. We are required to walk 25km along one of the Irish Pilgrimage Routes, such as St. Finbarr's route to Gougan Barra, St. Kevin's Way in the East, and Cosan Naomh or Cnoc Na Tobar in Kerry, along with Ballintubber Abbey to Westport Bay in County Mayo. And then we complete the remaining 75km South to Santiago from A Coruna in order to receive our joint Compostelas!
