English Way

The case study in this first edition of Routing will be the English Way. Throughout 7 days we will travel the route that pilgrims traditionally followed that from other points of Atlantic Europe arrived by sea to our coasts.

 

The English Way has two alternatives in Galicia, the variant that departs from Ferrol (118 km) and the variant that starts from A Coruña (74 km), connecting both routes in the town of Bruma. This road combines urban and rural areas, which will allow participants to have a global vision of the problems and constraints in the management of the roads.

In recent years, this route was the subject of intense conditioning and promotion work, the route that experienced a greater proportional growth in the number of registered pilgrims.

Enrollment

Registration fee: € 450 (includes, if desired, accommodation and maintenance in Phase 3)

Reduced enrollment of € 250 for unemployed up to a maximum of 5. In the case that a number of higher scholarship applications are received, the best proposals will be selected.
