Triacastela to Sarria – 20.1 km/12.9 miles

Buenos Dias from Galicia! We had a most beautiful and peaceful morning, a crisp day made for walking out in nature.

Galicia shares many historical and physical similarities to other Celtic regions, especially western Ireland. The language “Galega” is still spoken and understood by the majority. Fish dishes such as steamed octopus “Pulpo” and shellfish are served here accompanied by Ribeiros or AlbariƱo, the white wine of the region.

Sarria – pop. 13,000 of Celtic origin, is a major medieval center for pilgrims. In order to get the Compostela (the certificate) a pilgrim must at least walk from Sarria, these are the last 120 km to Santiago. Many Spaniards walk this stretch yearly for their pilgrimage.
