The Camino Primitivo is the closest route to the original itinerary of the Camino de Santiago: it's a more rugged, challenging, and rural path compared to the French route, but it offers a unique experience through priceless natural landscapes.
Starting from Oviedo, the ancient capital of Asturias, the journey continues through Asturias and Galicia, the mountains of Cantabria, Lugo with its Roman walls, the lively market town of Melide, all the way to legendary Santiago.
This trip can be split in two sections too:
- From Oviedo to Fonsagrada (9 days)
- From Fonsagrada to Santiago de Compostela (9 days)
