You know you have an addiction on your hands when you find yourself wandering on the Camino de Santiago on Google street view. If you have time on your hands, it is possible to “walk” vast chunks of the Camino from the safety of your living room. It is far less exciting, for sure, but you can get an idea of what awaits you once you “hook up”. I decided to take a tour from the outskirts of Sarria to its city centre during the weekend while not watching rugby and football.
The Camino winds along Rua do Peregrino before reaching the famous Peregrinoteca.com. Once you reach that, you can see Sarria’s famous steps that lead you to Rua Maior and its old town. Unfortunately, the great people at Google weren’t prepared to bring a car or a bicycle up the steps but we will let them off that for the time being. You can get an idea from the picture below.
I got a little surprise, however, when I found that you can view inside and around this store. Try it out.
