The bridge out of Ourense

Via de la Plata

The last 100km of the Via de la Plata is often mentioned as being one of the most beautiful ways to enter Santiago. A combination of rolling Galician hillside, beautiful hilltop views and ancient architecture. Starting in Ourense, a vibrant Spanish city gives you a taste of authentic Spain. From here head out into rural Galicia, and pass Barbantiño famous for empanadas, the Monasterio de Osteria, and Iglesia de Santa Maria de Magdalena. Arrive in the UNESCO world heritage site of Santiago de Compostela and complete your journey by gaining your Compostela.
