Or Ourense. I had to once, when I took a train from Sarria to SdC. Bus seems to be the direct and cheapest travel.Sometimes you need to go to Lugo, then from there to Sarria.
Also go via Lugo. There is a Lugo-Sarria bus that doesn't seem to show up on Rome2Rio when you try to search directly from Santiago de Compostela to Sarria.Yeah I am in the same boat, trying to get to Monforte de Lemos on a Saturday at the end of October. Doesn't seem to be anything on Saturdays!
Boy I must be digitally incompetent. I searched and searched for buses and trains on Saturday 30 October Santiago to Monforte, and there was nothing until late Sunday night on 31 October. And Monbus stated they only run M-F.
Best to double check. In case.VNwalking, you are fantastic!
Since you go through Lugo to get to Sarria why not start in Lugo and avoid a day or two of the Sarria crowds (its camino joins the CF, in Melida I think). A start point of Lugo (the cathedral?) qualifies you for a compostela.
VN, are you going through renfe.com? The timetable you attached looks different from what I am getting.
There was definitely an ALSA ticket machine there.Thanks Ivar! In the very last scene when you’re looking at the Alsa bus, it looked like there was a machine on one of the pillars. Do you think there is a ticket machine out there? For those of us who arrive late and are making a last minute mad dash to board?
