Bilbao to Santiago del Compostella via Renfe Train

I am still struggling to get from Bilbao to Santiago del C on Monday, May 19th. I know that the Refe trains go there, but there website does not make much sense. Only the instruction page is in English, the schedules are in Spanish. Would someone be kind enough to take a look to see how long the train ride/transfers are. Also what are the names of the train stations, I don't want to navigate to the wrong place! Many thanks! Anne

The whole trip takes 12 hours, from 9:15 am to 9:15 pm (more or less). This trip goes through Ourense. There is also an option that goes through Madrid. It is a night train, leaving Bilbao at 5:15 pm and getting to Santiago at 7:20 am.

Have you looked into flying? It might be a better bet.
