Es el camino que une Santiago con el sur de la península, sigue el recorrido de diversas “vías romanas” que unían el norte con el sur de la península. Un camino menos transitado pero no por ello menos bello.
In seas far north, day after day
We leaned upon the rail, engrossed
In frolic fin and jewel spray
And crystal headlands of the coast.
