CCG-Day 7: O Pedrouzo – Santiago de Compostela-20km

On Day 7: O Pedrouzo –  Santiago de Compostela you face your last 20km walk day in Camino!

The first half runs through rural landscape, similar to days before.

From Lavacolla you walk through the airport, highways, urban and residential areas. Then you reach Monte do Gozo (Mount of Joy) 5km before the city centre, from here you will glimpse the spires of the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.

The entrance to the old city of Santiago (100,000 inhabitants) is stunning, an incredible walk through the historic city streets leading you under the Arco del Obispo where you make your triumphant entrance into the Plaza del Obradoiro, Congratulations!

This night is one of celebration, the City will be brimming with Pilgrims and Locals alike enjoying the local cuisine and wines, sharing tales of their Camino and for many saying farewells to fellow pilgrims met along the way.

We will meet for our last Crossroads Travel Meal together, a chance to share the triumph of having made it to your destination and achieved your Compostela!
