The route in Estonia is 330 km long and divided into 13 stages.
The starting point of the Route is the Tallinn Dome Church, where the pilgrim credential can be purchased. The route runs from church to church, from point of interest to point of interest.
The Romea Strata follows the first part of the Estonian Way of St James, which from Tallinn passes through Pärnu and continues via Riga to Santiago de Compostela. From Pärnu-Jaagupi the Romea Strata leaves the route of St James to follow a branch of the Estonian Way through Tahkuranna, Häädemeeste and Ikla to Valga, the connection point with Latvia.
The branch-off from Pärnu-Jaagupi to Valga was created in July 2021 as part of the Holy Year. This section of the trail is not marked in nature and it is therefore necessary to follow the GPS tracks.
The itinerary in Estonia is very naturalistic as the country is sparsely populated. The route is easy as Estonia is a predominantly flat country: in the north it is characterised by ridges of glacial origin, in the central part there are small hills and it is rich in lakes and watercourses, while the innermost part of the country, in the south-east, is rich in hills.
