Leon to Sarria


Active Member
I will have to leave Leon to go to Sarria in mid-october.
What is the best method to get to Sarria as quickly as possible ?
Thanks for your replies.

Hi Ulysse and welcome to this forum!

I would take the bus to Lugo and then change to Sarria from there. Sarria is a small place, so no direct bus from Leon (as far as I know).

Leon - Lugo, see http://www.alsa.es [edit: corrected url] (available in English)

Then for the Lugo - Sarria stretch, have a look at these threads that are on a similar topic.


You will find some more bus schedules here:
http://www.santiago-today.com/bus-sched ... ostela.cfm

...but not for the Lugo - Sarria stretch. I put up these schedules in June this year, and it seems like I have made a note saying that there is a bus from Lugo to Sarria at 18.00 (true as of June 17th).

Please note, connection to Sarria from Lugo workdays at 18.00 (as of June 17th 2005). Operated by Castromil.

I hope this helps,

You could also go by train to Lugo - http://www.renfe.es - three trains per day, about 4 1/2 hours and costs about 28 Euro.
Then bus to Sarria.
:D I type too fast... I did correct the url. Thanks for catching that.

About the cost of a taxi from Lugo to Sarria... I would not know. I have never driven that stretch... maybe 50-60 euro? Just a guess.

Maybe with the train option you do not need to worry about it?
