Thanks to the large number of pilgrims who decide to make the Camino de Santiago from Sarria, travel to this Galician town has become very accessible.
That is why, from Viajeros Canallas we leave you with several options to get there and this link to the stages of the French Way if you want to know a little more about its route and how to get to Sarria Camino de Santiago.
How to get to Sarria by plane
From Santiago there are several easy options to get to your destination. There are Monbús buses to Sarria and, if you don't fit in with the timetables, don't worry! We recommend a fantastic alternative: go to Lugo, which has many more timetables every day, and then take a bus to Sarria, which is very close by.
From the experience we have of our travellers, another very profitable option is to take a taxi shared between several people (in fact there are taxis with capacity of 7 and 9 people). In addition, in Viajeros Canallas we always make a WhatsApp group for each group of the Camino de Santiago and there you can get in touch to share the taxi and get to Sarria in a very short time.
If your city does not have a connection with Santiago de Compostela by plane, check the option of arriving at Vigo or A Coruña airports.
How to get to Sarria by coach / train
There are direct trains from Chamartín to Sarria, which take approximately 6 hours, and many others that connect the capital with both Lugo (which is very close to Sarria) and Santiago de Compostela.
At the moment there is no bus from Madrid to Sarria, but there are buses from Estación Sur, Moncloa and T4 that go to Lugo in about 6 hours and a half, and then you can take one of the alternatives mentioned above to get to Sarria and start the Camino Francés.
From Barcelona, without a doubt, the best option is also the train. There is a train that goes directly to Sarria or with a single transfer in Monforte de Lemos.
As it is direct, although the journey time is about 12 hours on average, it is a highly recommended option if you want to do the French Way of St. James.
This same means of transport may also be the best option for you if you live in Tarragona, Lleida, Pamplona, Zaragoza, Vitoria, Palencia, León or Burgos, as the train makes several stops in all these cities.
If your place of origin is Andalusia, Extremadura or the Levantine Coast, the best option is almost always by coach or train to Madrid and from the capital take any of the options mentioned above.
How to get to Sarria by car
If you prefer to take your car and go to Sarria, from our experience we can tell you that parking there is easy and safe, as this town and its streets are very quiet.
Don't worry about returning to pick up your vehicle when you have arrived in Santiago de Compostela and have finished your journey.
As we have already mentioned, there is a bus service that takes you to Sarria so that you can easily return to your place of origin.
As mentioned above, all the groups that do the Camino de Santiago with Viajeros Canallas are part of their own WhatsApp group.
This makes it easy for you to get in touch with people in your town or nearby areas to talk about transport and even share a vehicle between several people to get to Sarria.
