Triacastela Information

Triacastela is the first location on the French Camino in Galicia. This small town, (with no more than a thousand inhabitants), is overwhelmed by a large influx of pilgrims during peak season, during which time there are more pilgrims than residents.

 Triacastela is seen as a place of rest on the pilgrimage route. After the demanding walk from O Cebreiro, pilgrims should only worry about two things: replenishing energy and deciding which variant to take to resume their hike the next day.


Triacastela is one of the places with the most history and importance on the Camino de Santiago. In the Codex Calixtinus it appears as a final stage.
