Saint James Way – Torres Way

A different way of walking to Compostela

The Torres Way is named after its most famous pilgrim, the Salamancan writer Diego de Torres Villarroel. It is a Jacobean route that runs along ancient medieval roads that connected Salamanca and the interior of Portugal to the western Iberian Peninsula and the coastal routes leading to Santiago de Compostela.

Over more than 20 days of walking this Saint James Way, pilgrims enjoy a route that is diverse and has its own identity, one that is challenging and at the same time fascinating, one that is unknown and yet has so many points of interest for the worship of Saint James.

Those who venture along these almost 600 km of this Saint James Way face steep climbs and long, solitary journeys, but also pass through unexpected urban centres, stunning landscapes and come into contact with an amazing heritage.
