Sarria to Santiago - 7 Days

The French Way

The French Way is the most popular route between the St. James Ways (English Way, Portuguese Way, North Way, Primitive Way, Via de la Plata,…). In 1987 the Council of Europe recognised it as the “I Cultural Itinerary of Europe”, also UNESCO gave the distinction as “Cultural Heritage of Humanity” in 1993. In 2004, the St. James Way received the Principe de Asturias Prize.

The French Way takes its name from the fact that it begins on French territory, and enters Galicia along a steep path that reaches its maximum height in the O Cebreiro highlands.

On the Galician part of the route walkers can enjoy the hospitality of the people, a wealth of varied, delicious gastronomy, the considerable artistic heritage, and a country that warmly welcomes the traveller.
