The Camino from Ferrol or A Coruña to Santiago de Compostela

The Camino Ingles has 2 alternative starting points. The route from Ferrol is 110 km to Santiago de Compostela, and therefore just long enough to qualify you to earn the Compostela when you reach Santiago. The route from A Coruña is only 75 km. The two routes join at Bruma. These pages describe both routes.
The first part of the A Coruña is on city streets and an alternative is to take a bus to the edge of the city.
