Primitive Way

Primitive Way

Our forefathers used to say “He who visits Santiago but not Oviedo, visits the servant but not the master”. This route follows the path of the first known itinerary taken by Alfonso II in the 9th century to visit the newly discovered tomb of the Apostle Saint James.

day 1 Lugo - San Romao da Retorta

day 3 Casacamiño - Melide

Another short but hard walk that ends in Melide, we climb to the highest point that is in Hospital (its name comes from an old Hospital for pilgrims run by the Order of St. John of Malta).
