Description

  • The Primitive Way is considered the origin of the pilgrimage to Santiago. It is the oldest route on the Camino.
  • This route, which starts in Oviedo, joins the French Way in Melide.
  • This crossing was the preferred route for kings and knights during the Middle Ages, although during the Reconquista this route remained in the background.
  • At present, this route is becoming more important.
  • You must devote at least two weeks to this route, since more than 300 km separate the cities of Oviedo and Santiago de Compostela.
  • The last 100 km, necessary to obtain the Compostela, start in Lugo.
  • This route is perfect for those who wish peace, solitude and silence.
