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.
Katherine Lee Bates
Older tan the french route ,it was the route used by the former pilgrims,not the easiest but with amazing landscapes, when the christians started to push the moors to the south Little by Little was abandoned.
This was the preferred route by the pilgrims of northern Europe faster, more comfortable and less dangerous. Got its climax on the XIV and XV centuries and most of its users were from England hence the name. They arrived by sea to one of the Galician ports and then on foot to Santiago.
