Camino Primitivo & Camino de Finisterre

Camino Primitivo is where it all began, it was along this route the first pilgrims made their way to Santiago de Compostela, it is the first and the oldest of the pilgrim routes. Officially, the trail starts in Oviedo, but for many it is Villaviciosa that marks the beginning, where a path splits from the Camino del Norte and continues towards Oviedo as the primitive way. The route is about 300km long and goes through Asturias and Galicia on its way to Santiago de Compostela, it joins the Camino Frances in Melide.

Camino Finisterre is a shorter camino that takes the pilgrims to Finisterre and the end of the world. This camino differs from the other routes since you here are walking away from Santiago de Compostela instead of walking towards the city.

In the Summer of 2015 I travelled to Spain to walk the Camino Primitivo and the Camino Finisterre, here you find my story from the camino.
