Camino Primitivo - Stage 1

  • The original pilgrims trail to Santiago
  • Discovering the authentic towns and villages that form the backbone of the route.
  • Enjoying the fine flavours of the regional food and drink.
  • Warm and welcoming locals and the friendships made along the Way.
Walk the first section of the original pilgrims trail from Oviedo to Lugo. This first stage of the Camino Primitivo is challenging and fairly arduous, representing the most courageous character of pilgrims, however the reward at the end is well worth the effort. Starting off in the vibrant medieval city of Oviedo where the streets are littered with restaurants and small chigres (cider bars) enjoy your first slice of authentic Spanish hospitality. From here you will continue your walk westwards uncovering the beautiful Cantabrian Mountains and Asturian countryside.
