On Day 1: Sarria… hopefully, you have time to wander through the streets of Sarria and explore some or all of its sites.
There are many wonderful historical sites in Sarria, one of the most famous is Monastery A Madalena founded at the beginning of the 13th century as a pilgrim hospital by Italian monks of the Order of the Blessed Martyrs of Jesus, who were also pilgrims. if that is all you have time for it is not to be missed.
In the afternoon we will gather for the first time as a group (time and location to be confirmed prior to arriving). Introductions and open discussion of what we have in front of us. We want to ensure that you are all prepared for the walking days ahead. After this, we will share our first meal together then have a not too late evening to ensure we are all rested and ready to walk.
