Exalted by and for the service of the Crown in the Age of Enlightenment, the first references to the town of Ferrol dated from the I century, as a Neolithic fortified coastal settlement that became a town for sailors and fishermen, origin of the city. However, the geo-strategic location and uncomparable conditions of the of the Ferrol estuary, drew the attention of the Borbones, the royal family that converted the estuary and port into a arrivals and harbor for the Armada.

At the same time they constructed the defenses on either sides of the narrow mouth. First stage and starting point for the Camino Inglés, Ferrol deserves a mention on the pilgrimage road so they can stroll through its old town, although seriously wounded and a shadow of its former self, visit the vast naval and military heritage and, of course , taste its cuisine.   Location: Ferrol Distance to Santiago: 117 Km Train connection: Yes Bus connection: Yes Taxi Ranks: If Teller: Yes Police: 981314403 to 981314524 Civil Protection: 981320000 Local Police: 981944092 Pharmacies: If
