A crossroads of Caminos. Verín is the point at which pilgrims on the southern route of the Silver Way and pilgrims from the east unite.
In the heart of the historic centre of Verín, in Plaza García Barbón, the two itineraries unite to continue, towards the north, until reaching Santiago of Compostela.
Verín has its history closely linked to its location, as a border and, to its terrain, rich in medicinal water and wine. A Roman town, nestled on the banks of the river Támega, currently it has 15,000 inhabitants, including in its 17 residential areas.
Attention pilgrims! The signposts in the urban centre are incorrect and may cause problems for walkers trying to follow the route.
In the castle of Monterrei the first printing machine was established in 1494.
If you are traveling on the Camino de Santiago or are planning to do so soon, you should know that the distance separating Verín from Santiago de Compostela is 180 kilometers.
