Travel Tales with Fergal – Camino Special – Part 3

Fergal o’Keeffe walked on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in Spain this year for my 3 part Travel Tales with Fergal Camino Special Podcast series.

Along the way he interviewed many interesting people including fellow walkers, pilgrims, guides and historians.


The Camino is over 800kms from the Spanish border in the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia and it typically takes a walker between 30 to 35 to complete.

The Camino is a truly magical pilgrimage and Fergal hopes these 3 episodes convey in some small way why the Camino is so special to me and to so many people around the world.

You hear on the podcast on this page from some of the fascinating people Fergal met along the way starting now with Jarlath O’Madain who Fergal met during the walk and then interviewed him in Santiago on the day he finished his Camino.

Fergal met so many captivating guides who were full of knowledge and this really brought the Camino’s history to life and helped me get an understanding of the different cultures of each of the four very different regions the Camino passes through. We get to hear from three on the podcast – Helder Cerejo, Patricia Longa and Ursula.
