This series is a journey through the last seven stages of the Primitive Way, from Grandas de Salime to Santiago de Compostela.
Each chapter is a stage through which we will go through the pilgrims’ own experiences and emotions. We will also get to know the cultural and artistic heritage that this Way gives us.
We will travel to the Bronze Age in the Castro de Chao Samartin. We will advance to the 14th century in the Royal Hospital of Montouto. We will march on the most complete and best preserved example of military architecture of the Western Roman Empire, the wall of Lugo.
Slowing down and speeding up our emotions, we will arrive at Santiago de Compostela to finish an unforgettable experience that most pilgrims will repeat without a doubt.
