bus from la coruna to sarria


New Member
We are arriving in la coruna on the night of sat 23rd may and want to get to sarria as quickly as possible the following day (sunday- will this be very difficult?) to start walking. Any idea how we can get there? Also, can we get a pilgrim's passport in la coruna?

Nunca se camina solo

I see there is a train to Sarria from A Coruna - but not at weekends so that doesn't help!

I think the way to do this is A Coruna - Lugo - Sarria - there have been previous posts on the Lugo - Sarria journey. Ivar seems to have researched this and I'll PM the question to him in case he doesn't catch these posts.

As for your other question: Passprts are available from the Sacristy of the Church of Santiago in A Coruna after Mass:

Masses: Daily at 12 noon and 8pm
Sundays and Feasts at 10.30, 11.30, 12.30 and 8pm

Credenciales cost 0.5 €

Forgive me raising a point - why travel to Sarria to start? On the Camino Ingles You could either start in A Coruna or get a bus round to Ferrol and start from there - if traveling from A Coruna you won't qualify for a Compostela but from Ferrol you will. It is a fine route. There are regular buses to Ferrol including on Sundays.

There are lots of bus companies providing services out of A Coruna therefore whatever you decide either get your hotel/hostal to check the times or call in at one of the two tourist offices in A Coruna - open until 2 pm on Saturdays. Or e mail the question to them on

In any event - buen camino.

Hi there,

I just looked up the train schedule from La Coruña to Lugo on May 23rd (Saturday) and I did find an early train, leaving La Coruña at 06.50 arriving Lugo at 08.28. Then there is another one at 08.27 arriving at 10.21. Am I reading this wrong?
Have a look at the schedule here:

For the bus, I had a look at this site and fouind this: ... /lugo.html

* Bus / Autobœs:
o A Coruña - Lugo: 8:00, 10:00r, 11:00, 12:30, 13:30, 16:00, 18:30, 20:00.

Now, I know this is not an official site, but it gives you an indication. I think I would go for the train.

Buen camino!
