This is also known as the Camino Mozárabe, king Alfonso IX went back from Santiago using this road in 1225. The Sanabria Way goes along the province of Zamora and enters Galicia through A Gudiña; it then goes through the beautiful city of Ourense, carries on to the province of Pontevedra, and finally the province of A Coruña to reach the Galician capital.  The Camino will reveal some Romanesque jewels, landscapes of vineyards and green walkways where tranquillity and nature rule.
