Primitive Camino de Santiago
Welcome to a different road, famous for its forests, streams, meadows and breathtaking views.
Although it has a reputation for being harder, from Viajeros Canallas we have decided to simplify this route a little, so we will cover about 152.5 kilometres from Fonsagrada to Santiago de Compostela, in 6 stages.
This route is called "primitive" because it is the first route of which there are historical references. Undoubtedly, it is a different route compared to the French Way or the Portuguese Way. In addition, the Primitive Way is famous for its essence, as it is much less crowded than the other two.
The difficulty of the Camino de Santiago Primitivo is somewhat higher than on other routes, as we mentioned. There are constant ascents and descents, as well as different types of terrain among which we can find from stony roads to asphalt tracks.
But this little extra effort is rewarded by the beauty of the landscapes along this route, streams, rivers, meadows, hills, valleys and much more. Almost the entire route is in the middle of nature, with hardly any contact with busy roads.
