Transportation from Madrid to Sarria

Does anyone know how to get from Madrid to Sarria, which is our entry point for walking the Camino to Santiago? I can't seem to find it on the train (RENFE) schedule.

Hi Carol Q,

I think that the best option is a train from Madrid to Monforte de Lemos and bus from Monforte to Sarria.

From Madrid you can take a couple of trains to Monforte de Lemos, both departing from Chamartín Station (11:40 and 22:30 - journey around 7 hours 45 minutes). I am not sure if both run daily. :-/

From Monforte de Lemos you have to take a bus to Sarria (buses run from 6:35 to 22:05 - journey between 30 and 45 minutes). - trains from Madrid to Monforte de Lemos - regional buses from Monforte to Sarria
