Day 1: A Coruña / San Xoán de Sarandóns ( Aquelabanda) – Stage 1 ( 23 km)
The variant of the English Way which starts in A Coruña, begins its route at the Church of Santiago, founded at the beginning of the 13th century. From here it continues to Puerta Real and along Avenida de la Marina with its emblematic galleries dating from the 14th century, going all the way to Los Cantones. Following Sánchez Bregua and Linares Rivas streets, we come to the Plaza de Cuatro Caminos, and along Fernández Latorre and Pérez Arda streets we reach the Eirís district of the city. We go from the municipality of A Coruña to that of Culleredo through O Portazgo, then taking the O Burgo seaside promenade where we can see the Romanesque Church of Santiago and the 12th century mills of Acea de Ama. The route continues through Alvedro, crosses the medieval bridge at A Xira over the River Valiñas and enters the municipality of Cambre, through the parish of Sigrás with its Romanesque church, to head on towards Sobrecarreira and enter the municipality of Carral through San Martín de Tabeaio and crosses the villages of Corpo Santo, Belvís, Sergude and Cañás. The route makes yet another change of municipality in Abegondo, through the population centres of San Xoán de Sarandóns (Aquelabanda).Accommodation in Costa da Egoa.
Day 2: San Xoán de Sarandóns (Aquelabanda) / A Calle – Stage 2 (21.8 km)
Through the village of O Rueiro, we come to the municipality of Carral to then go through O Peito and As Travesas. A short section separates Vento from kilometre point 42,702 which belongs to the district of Mesía where the itinerary joins up with the variant from Ferrol, until it reaches Bruma. Leaving Bruma, with its remains of the ancient medieval pilgrims’ hospital behind us, the route takes us on to the municipality of Ordes, passing through O Seixo, Cabeza de Lobo and crosses the parish of Ardemil, to carry on to A Carreira, As Mámoas and A Carballeira. On passing through A Rúa, home to the Church of San Paio de Buscás, we leave Trabe mill and O Cubo bridge behind us and carry on towards Outeiro de Abaixo, taking a wooded track which leads to the Church of San Xiao de Poulo in Outeiro de Arriba. The path continues until it reaches the small hamlet of A Calle. Accommodation in Casa Antón Veiras.
Day 3: A Calle / Santiago de Compostela – Stage 3 (29.7 Km)
The route passes through Carballo, crossing Casanova de Pereiro until it gets to A Ponte Pereira bridge, which is possibly of medieval origin. After crossing A Ponte Pereira, the path goes into a wood to cross through Carrás, a grazing land with numerous springs that often make this route impassable at this point. We carry on to Baxoia and reach Sigüeiro, a town of medieval origin (12th century) and the current administrative head of the municipality of Oroso. Once in the population centre, we continue along the Rúa Real, ending up at the medieval bridge over the River Tambre. After crossing the bridge, the route enters the city of Santiago running parallel to the river, all the way to the Church of Barciela and carries on to the so-called “Fonte do Inglés”. It goes past the area of Tambre, heading towards Meixonfrío, entering the urban centre of Santiago along the Cruceiro de A Coruña, passing in front of the administrative buildings of the Regional Government of Galicia and the pilgrim monument by Jose María Acuña, to carry on along the streets of A Pastoriza, Basquiños and Santa Clara, with the monumental Baroque facade of the Convent of the Order of St. Clare. The route continues along Rúa Loureiros to the Porta da Pena gate, all the way up to the Praza de San Martiño Pinario. It carries on along Rúa da Troia and joins up with Rúa da Acibechería at the northern facade of Santiago Cathedral.
