The Camino de Santiago French Route meanders across Northern Spain entering Galicia at the village of O´Cebreiro. From here the pilgrim trail leads the pilgrim to the town of Sarria. In the centre of the town on the pilgrim trail. This is the last major stop before the commencement of the last 100km and it is from here that many pilgrims set off on their mission.
On arriving in Sarria on foot the pilgrim crosses the Sarria River then crosses the Monforte Road before being confronted by the daunting Pilgrim Steps. These steps trodden by millions of pilgrims over the years lead to the main pilgrim street of Sarria - Rua Maior - with its infamous albergue municipal. It is at the top of these steps the pilgrim encounters the marker stone for 111,5km to Santiago and Pension Escalinata.
Pension Escalinata offers the weary pilgrim an oasis, a place to rest and feed and regenerate energy for the rest of the journey. The bar serves, breakfast from early morning, bocadillas throughout the day and a pilgrim menu to satisfy the most hungry. This is supported by a fine collection of drinks and the best coffee on the Camino. The bar also has public internet and telephone.
