  • Original Way – Lugo to Santiago 2/2 FINAL SECTION

    Walking Section 2 of 2

    The Original Way or Camino Primitivo (#caminoprimitivo) was the first Camino route to Santiago de Compostela, when in the 9th century most of Spain was under Moorish control.

    Trip highlights:

    Step back in time in Lugo: the only Roman walled city in Spain Walk across Galicia's peaceful countryside Taste octopus in Melide, Galicia's most traditional dish Immerge yourself in the bohemian culture of Santiago                

    Lugo, home to the best preserved Roman wall in Europe, stretching over 2kms wrapped around the old town. Apart from its famous wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lugo is also known for its good food. Many bars in town will serve free ‘pinchos’ when you order a drink.

    From Lugo, the Camino Primitivo continues towards Santiago de Compostela across peaceful forests and farmland, following old Roman paved roads and over pretty medieval bridges. This section joins the final stretch of the French Way, the most popular Camino route, in the lively town of Melide.

    2 Lugo to Ferreira - 26km

    3 Ferreira to Melide - 28km

    This is a self-guided tour including accomodations and 2 meals.

    The price I'm seeing is about $865 not including flights.  I priced flights at $1331 on AA (no 1st bag fees, might be other fees).

    I'm going, if anyone else is interested let me know.  I realize this a little bit "out there", but it looks like a great experience.

    Are you staying in the hiker hostels? Our group of 7 did not and we came in around $715.00(for lodging including 2 meals) US dollars staying in B&B's or little guest houses. Sharing a room for 2. Flight looks right. Right now the exchange rate is better than when we were there.

    Susan, Bruce, what are your thoughts for making the trip as cost effective as possible?

    Just hiked a portion of the French Way in Sept./Oct. this year. Started in Ponferrada to Santiago. Enjoyed the first section before Sarria most. However, all was beautiful and interesting.

    I've done some reading, and seen "The Way". Anything more about it would be great to hear.

    I completed the Camino Frances in 2014 if you'd like any insight.
