My first camino experience
Hi, I plan to do Camino Frances route in Sept 2018 but I can’t decide where to start my journey. Which town is more accesible from O Cebreiro or Tricastela? And anyone could give advice on how to get there? I only have limited time, 8 full walking days :(

from Madrid you can take a bus or train to Sarria or Ponferrada, then taxi to start point

If you are flying into Madrid you can get an Alsa bus (www.alsa.es) from terminal T4 at 10:00 or at 23:59 to Piedrafita do Cebreiro. This takes 5 or 6 hours and cost about €35. You then either have to walk or take a taxi for the remaining 3 or 4km up to O Cebreiro itself.
