Silversea Expedition Cruises To Ferrol

Ferrol

English pilgrims have arrived in Ferrol by sea since Medieval times to walk to the city of Santiago de Compostela. Ferrol is a superb harbour with a narrow entrance fortified with forts. It had excellent strategic value as a deep safe harbour and was Europe’s most important arsenal for the storage of arms and ammunition in the 17th century. It became a major naval base and ship building port for many centuries. Pilgrims walk inland from Ferrol on the Camino Inglés or English Way to Santiago. View more

In the 8th century, a light in the forest was interpreted as marking the grave of the martyr St James. Millions of pilgrims began walking to the site, now Santiago, from all over Europe to ensure they spent less time in purgatory. Several caminos, or ways, make up the Camino Santiago with the French Camino most popular today for walkers of all countries and beliefs. For time-poor visitors, coaches can cut the travel time from Ferrol. The key destination for all pilgrims is the cathedral with its tomb of St James. The building is a masterpiece of Romanesque architecture, with the Pórtico de la Gloria entrance a jewel of medieval sculpture. The Old Town of Santiago is a World Heritage Site. Pilgrims walked through ancient forests and pockets of them persist today. Fragas de Eume Natural Park protects Atlantic woodlands of White Oak and cool temperate rainforest along the river. Within the park, the siting and design of Caaveiro Monastery demonstrates how the desire to be with nature is centuries old.
