Madrid to Santiago

by nino224

Trying to figure out the best way to get from M to S. I'm walking the English route of El Camino, Ferrol-Santiago. The train schedule I looked at says Madrid to Santiago is 6 hours. Is that correct?

If you want to find train times and details for almost all european trains, the excellent:

http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

is the place to look.

Madrid>Santiago de Compostela takes from 7+ hours.

The Spanish railway site:

http://www.renfe.es/horarios/index.html

also gives 7+ hours, but does not list the alternative departures shown on bahn.de (probably because I don't know the Spanish box to tick for 'show all departures). It only shows the two fastest direct departures.

You can also fly www.ryanair.com, even cheaper and of course, faster

7hrs and 1 minute on the TALGO train leaving Madrid Chamartin at 1420 or 8hrs and 50 minutes on the overnight train that leaves at 2220. It is a long way!

The buses of the ALSA company take about 9 hours for the journey www.alsa.es

Train costs about 48 Euros, Bus about 42.

Spanair ( daily flight) do it in 1hr 10 minutes plus of course the time it takes to get to the airport, check-in security etc etc. Prices of course impossible to summarise but at least double train or bus cost it looks like to me.

Iberia (about 5 daily flights) also 1hr 10 minutes.

I hope that helps.

Cheapest budget airline fares are booked well in advance..don't leave it too late or the train may well be cheaper.

Be aware of the Ryanair 15kg hold baggage limit and strict check-in times. A couple of minutes late and you will miss your flight with no refund.

Re: Madrid to Santiago

by leics

Remember to factor in time to/from the airport, time to check-in (usually closes 40 minutes before departure, good idea to be there around 2 hours beforehand to allow for queus there and at security) and for baggage reclaim.

Time saved by flying set against train may not be as great as one supposes.

You are welcome and enjoy Santiago de C., a lovely city!

Hi,

Depends on the date you need to be there but there is a direct fligh from Madrid to Santiago http://www.bookryanair.com/skysales/FRSelect.aspx that costs you about 76€ (I had a look to the prices a minute ago). In my opinion its not worthy to go by bus or train because by plane it will cost you just about 30 more Euros.

Enjoy your trip

Travel Tips for Santiago de Compostela

A Great City

by lexmark110

I did the Camino Santiago from Merida to Santiago and had a most wonderful experience. It was wonderful to take my time and walk from town to town with nothing but my prayers, thoughts and backpack. It gave me an appreciation of Spain and her people in a way that can't be done in a week or two of touring. Enjoy Santiago and make sure to see the Cathedral, go to the Pilgrim's Mass at noon and eat some Tarta de Santiago. Arriving at the Cathedral after walking 500 miles and sitting in the Pilgrim's Mass. It was a wonderful journey that I encourage everyone to do.

Keep your Rucksack Safe -- Keep your kit Dry

by into-thin-air

If you are travelling Anywhere and using a Rucksack / Backpack as your luggage then I would Strongly recommend that you use some form of Rucksack / Backpack Pro-tector !!

This tip is from my own personal experience, as I have had Big Problems having my Rucksack damaged or even destroyed by airlines, particularly on Airport Carousels,
What can happen is that one of the straps can drop in-between the lats on the moving Carousel and then as your Rucksack goes around a corner, the strap gets ripped off, I lost the entire back and carrying system from one of my rucksacks !! You Definitely don't want this to happen, Especially on the way out to start walking your Camino !!
As The Rucksack Pro-Tector has the second function as a water-resistant liner for your rucksack. It is a particularly useful piece of kit for Camino walking, Other rucksack protectors leave you with the problem of having to carry it around with you for the walk with no useful function !! I have tried many of the Rucksack / Backpack Protectors that are available on the market and was disappointed with how they performed, So after having many problems with these decided to design and manufacture my own.
Full details of how this came about are written up on my Nepal page.
So, Obviously my own recommendation would be to get your Rucksack / Backpack Protector from Pro-Tector Also, after successfully designing, producing and selling the Rucksack Pro-tector for several years, I have now introduced some new lines such as a Pro-Tector Travel Wallet and a Pro-Tector Document / Valuables Travel Pouch.
If you think that any of the above would be of benefit for yourself on your own travels then please take a look at my web-site

Paris to Dakar or t'other way round!

by suvanki about Dakar Bar

Before my trip I'd read of the Paris - Dakar bar 'crawl'. There are 2 bars of these names within walking/ staggering distance of each other.

I came across the Dakar bar by accident, I was just looking for somewhere to get a coffee.
However, it was getting quite cold, and when I looked at the menu of drinks, I decided upon a liquor coffee (pic 2)
I later passed the Paris Bar (pic 3) but didn't go inside - maybe next time I'll do the Paris - Dakar!

Cathedral - botafumeiro

by micas_pt


The botafumeiro is an enormous piece to burn incense inside the Cathedral. It is said that is the biggest of its kind in the world.

This botafumeiro was manufactered in 1851 by Jose Losada; it weights 80kg and it’s 1.60m high. This kind of object was first used on the 14th century, and its purpose was to “lighten” the air inside the chapel by burning incense - the pilgrims “smelled” as they walked for days to arrive in Santiago de Compostela and didn’t bath ...

The botafumeiro is made of silver brass and it requires several men to manipulate it on the Cathedral.
