Sarria wants to be the KM. 0 on your Camino

Sarria can be a starting point if you want to get the Compostela or a stop on your pilgrimage. But also the start of a journey through a region full of life, heritage and cultural and gastronomic traditions. Either way, you will be part of Sarria during your stay. Enjoy it, whether you have one or more days. Come and experience its nature, its history and its friendliness.

Sarria is the beginning, it is LIFE, it is WATER of…

  • TIMES of a meiga that filled the
  • Sarria RIVER that gave its name to the town.
  • SNOW that covers the nearby mountains in white.
  • ROCÍO that the pilgrim encounters on his way to Santiago.
  • RUST that crunches when stepping on the fallen leaves on the paths.
  • REDDING that makes the pastures and forests grow, which with its chestnuts and acorns nourish the Galician blonde and the Celtic pork.
  • RAIN to put in the water to feed the pilgrims.
  • WATER to soak the seven herbs of San Juan

Visit

In Sarria we have plans adapted to you. If you only have 1 day, we recommend a circular tour of the town, stopping at monuments, churches and historic buildings. If you have 2 days, you can also enjoy our natural surroundings, parks and recreational areas around the river. But if you are lucky enough to have more days, make excursions to the Terras de Sarria, Samos, Ribeira Sacra, Courel or Ancares. In any of these 3 plans try to feel, enjoy the details. The rich smell of freshly baked bread at the Bread Museum, the taste of the freshest products at the weekly fairs, a good conversation in a charming place, the feeling of entering another era when you visit an antique shop on Porvir street, seeing cows and pigs grazing free in the meadows and mountains, the sounds of the river…

Sarria will leave you with a good taste in your mouth

Enjoy a tasty Galician veal cutlet that melts in your mouth, a spectacular Celtic pork stew or lacón con grelos (pork shoulder with turnip tops). As well as varied and tasty traditional sausages. But if you’re more of a green person, try local vegetables (beets, turnip greens or cabbage) and recipes prepared with them, such as Galician broth. And don’t leave Sarria without trying the pulpo á feira, the most typical desserts or the bread and pastries of all kinds. Savour Sarria in bars, restaurants, fairs and local shops

Rest

After an intense day of walking or visiting the Lands of Sarria you need a good place to sleep and rest.
