Day 1 Ferrol to Pontedeume

The Camino Ingles has two starting points. The El Ferrol route is 110 km to Santiago de Compostela, and this is sufficient to obtain a Compostela when you arrive in Santiago. The A Coruña route is only 75 km. The two routes join at Bruma. La primera parte de la ruta por A Coruña trancurre sobre el centro de la ciudad y lo mejor es cojer un bus al centro de la ciudad.
