More Information

The Route of Father Sarmiento follows the pilgrimage undertaken in 1745 by the Spanish Benedictine monk and scholar Father Martin Sarmiento.

One of Spain’s most fascinating historical figures of the Enlightenment era, Father Sarmiento fought superstition and ignorance throughout his life and wrote on a wide range of disciplines including linguistics, theology and medicine.

This walking route named in his honour follows a 190-kilometre path from Pontevedra to Santiago de Compostela, via the valleys and seaside villages of the gorgeous coastal area of O Salnés.

Full of history, tradition and nature, this is a journey to inspire beautiful photographs and wonderful memories.
