Hello, Has anyone travelled by train or bus from Santiago to Zamora on to Granja de Moreruela, I've checked online and it seems there is a train from Santiago to Zamora. I will be flying from the UK.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks


What are the best options to getting Granja de Moreruela, I could just start at Zamora
 
Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.

€149,-
When we walked the Sanabres, we started in Zamora. Stayed in Montamarta, Riego del Camino, and then Granja de Moreruela where the Sanabres starts. The next day, Granja to Tabara, was a very long day. As I recall, we could have stayed in Faramontanos. Highlights on the Sanabres for us: Casa Anita in Santa Croya, the albergue in Rio Negro (and the restaurant, Me Gusta Comer), the castle in Puebla de Sanabria, the walk from Lubian to O Pereiro, the bakery in Cea, and the monastery in Oseira.

Thanks for the replies, I don't mind starting at Zamora, The main question is where to fly in to, Santiago or Madrid? I know my way around Santiago thats for sure, are there more options to Zamora from Santiago trains etc?
 
I don't know which would cheaper for you. It is the same train line from either Madrid or Santiago. From the US it would be cheaper to fly to Madrid, but I am not certain from the UK. You should also check the train times as you will have to get from the airport to the train station on both accounts.

In 2019 travelled by train to Zamora. Then a bus from the bus station to G de M. I pre-booked the bus online. It was difficult to get information at the bus station about which bus was the one that went through G de M as I could not speak Spanish. I eventually ended up on the correct bus. It arrived in Zamora about 30 minutes late.
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.

There are lots of flights from the UK to Madrid and I’ve just booked my train to Zamora though I am staying one night in Madrid and then catching the fast train at 10.04am the following day. It takes just over an hour. It’s just over two hours from Santiago to Zamora depending on the time of day. There are very few fast trains whichever you decide on so don’t get caught out if you then want a bus to Granja de Moreruela afterwards.
 
A vote here for the train. From SdC is comfortable and fast. The bus station at Zamora is rather basic, though the man in the consigna (left luggage) was very helpful. It seemed that it is only served by Alsa buses.
 
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

When was this? A month ago I spent 2 hours at the Zamora bus station trying to find the Alsa service to Granja based on an old post - they don’t service it now - see my previous post in this thread which refers to my post in the earlier thread. They are # 11 in both threads. I give the details there of which service does operate.
