In summer dates the influx of tourists and pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago is increased markedly, and therefore the police presence must be increased. This increase in main surveillance we can see, for example, in Tui, where a squad of mounted Civil Guard ensures the safety of pilgrims since early this June. In addition, this fleet will be one of the first lines of prevention and action in the fight against forest fires in southern Galicia.

Pilgrims, security forces and neighbors, highlight this service, in addition to the Camino a much safer route, be very sensitive to the environment and the good atmosphere that permeates Camino de Santiago. "Contact with the neighbors is much more direct, the horse reaches places inaccessible to motor vehicles which are also potentially dangerous to the environment also" assured Sergeant Velasco, one of the squad leaders of the unit.Security forces Foremost, your focus when preventing forest fires and, while recognizing that there are a great sensitivity among the pilgrims, there is always some clueless, "some still asks if he can have a barbecue."



To live the Camino you must be registered and/or logged. Take the first step and start your story!

Esperemos que este año se produzcan pocos o ningún incendio, tan dañinos para la fauna y flora local.

Y lo peor es cuando luego te das cuenta que es todo obra de un barrenado en algunos casos...

La verdad es que es una pena ver algún bosque en Galicia quemado.
