The “Winter” Route
The route primarily uses the old Roman route used for transporting ore from the mines which follows the Sil River. This route was preferred in winter – hence the name (Invierno) than crossing the snowy heights of O Cebreiro on the Camino Frances.
The Spanish association Camino de Invierno has both english and Spanish information about the route including guidebooks in both Gastilian and English.
Our own Geoff Travers based in Victoria BC, walked the route in August 2016 and details of his journey can be found here:
