The English Way also known as the Celtic Camino: Ferrol & Coruña - Santiago
The Camino Inglés or English Way, also known as The Celtic Camino, was popular with pilgrims arriving by sea in the medieval period. It is quietly coming alive again and ready to welcome pilgrims seeking a more solitary way along the rugged rías of Northern Galicia. It provides the minimum distance required for a pilgrim to apply for a Compostela. This reference contains all the information needed by modern-day pilgrims wishing to walk these sacred roads. Overview route planners plus daily stage maps and detailed town plans help sojourners with as much advance preparation as they need. The maps feature contour guides to help distinguish the terrain that will be crossed each day, while full information on all pilgrim hostels, as well as details for alternative accommodation, allow travellers to plot adequate nightly stopping points. All reference information is accompanied by helpful spiritual guidelines to support the seeker's inner journey as well as the outer pilgrimage. This lightweight guide fits into a walker's pocket for carefree traveling. This guidebook also seeks to find a balance between the outer and inner journey, between the practical and spiritual, which is why it is subtitled A Practical & Mystical Manual – that we might find a place to eat and sleep at the end of a hard day's walk but also, and crucially, that we might find the courage to dive into the mystery of our own soul awakening.
