The English Way

The Pilgrims’s Road to Santiago was an essential part of medieval Europe. Pilgrims from Scandinavia, Flemish lands, England, Scotland and Ireland crossed the sea in great numbers to Ferrol and A Coruña, strategic enclaves for starting the English Road to Santiago.

History of the English Road:

Hostilities among the kingdoms of Galicia, Leon, Castilla and Aragoon, and between France and England, all made pilgrimage a complex matter. It varied in accordance with the pacts and alliances between the lands The french roads passed through. Pilgrimage by sea was free of such problems.

People used to travel there on boats used to transport goods and troops on their way to crusades. Once on dry land, they continued their journey along the Royal Highways, using churches, monasteries, chapels and hospitals as waymarkers.
