Entering Santiago?



I can't seem to find my Redbook instructions from the Camino Frances. Does anyone have the walking instructions for entering Santiago and reaching the Cathedral.

I would be tempted to say: Just follow the arrows. But here his the actual way:

Rua Dos Concheiros, rua de San Pedro, Porta do Camino, rua das Casas Reais, rua das Animas, plaza de Cervantes, rua de la Azabacheria, Arco del Obispo, Plaza del Obradoiro.



Hi Jean-Marc,

Thank you very much. It was 2006 when I last completed the pilgrimage and for some reason I can't find my Red Confraternity book. You are right, follow the Yellow arrows doesn't work that well in the heart of the city. They have a way of being very hard to find.

Thank you very much! :D




Thank a lot hermano! I really appreciate it. Time is slowly getting closer, only 4-weeks till we leave. This is my wife's first time backpacking let alone this type of distance. I don't want to mess up at the very end. :wink:

Thank you very much,

I got to Santiago on Saturday May 9th. I had no guide book or map and so just followed the arrows with no problems whatsoever. Very straightforward. Hope you have as magical an arrival as we did - Saturday afternoon, market stall, musicians, festival atmosphere, sun shining, Galician piper as we walked down the steps to the square. It was worth every blister over 519 miles! :D
