Check in

Arrival in Tui, point of departure of the last 100 km of the Camino Portugués.

Tui– O Porriño (16 km)

Tui is a lovely town located in the boarder with Portugal. It is known as the starting point of the last 100 km of the Portuguese Way. The walk from Tui to O Porriño is very pleasant, through the countryside of Galicia region.

O Porriño – Arcade (22 km)

The terrain is quite hilly, but the landscape of the ocean is worth the effort. Redondela is a small town with just a limited accomodation offer. Some pilgrims prefer to continue for 7km more until Arcade.

Arcade – Pontevedra (11 km)

Since this stage, the route joins the Portuguese Way, so you will find more pilgrims. We recommend to stop in POntesampaio, a small town with a very interesting history. Once there, you can cross the Roman bridge above the Verdugo river, the same Almanzor crossed in 977, in his way to plunder Compostela. This stage ends up in the city of Pontevedra, famous for its old town and the shell-shaped church, Peregrina.

Pontevedra – Caldas de Rei (21 km)

After leaving Pontevedra behind, the path of the Camino will take us back to the countryside of Galicia region. We will walk through rural areas, woods, and streams. Highlights of the day: -The cascades and mills at the Natural Park of the Barosa River -The thermal spring waters in Caldas de Reis.

Caldas de Rei – Padrón (18,6 km)

On the way from Caldas de Rei to Padrón, the Portuguese Way passes through small hamlets. You will see disperse house along the walk. Padrón has a lot of history related to the Camino de Santiago.

Padrón – Santiago (24,6 km)

If you do not feel like walking 25 km in one day, we can split the stretch from Padrón to Santiago de Compostela in two. This way you will get to know Teo, which is half way. The landscape will radically change as we approach the outskirts of Santiago de Compostela. Our final destination? The Obradoiro Square, where the main façade of the Cathedral is located.

Superior Category Accommodations on El Camino Portugués

Superior Hotels

Typical in the large cities along the El Camino. They can be family hotels or international hotel chains. They are perhaps the most expensive alternative, although you can find different price levels according to the category and services they offer.

Boutique Hotels

These are small accommodations characterized by having few rooms and providing personalized attention. They are hotel concepts with a modern style and their own character.

National Paradores of Spain

This is a public hotel chain that manages a network of almost 100 charming hotels distributed throughout the Iberian Peninsula. The establishments are located in buildings of cultural interest and great historical value, and stand out for their scenic, artistic or natural interest (including ancient palaces, monasteries, fortresses, convents, fortresses…).

Rural tourism lodgings

Rural houses, pazos, inns, rectories, castles, monasteries, farmhouses… These are historic buildings of great architectural and patrimonial value. So much so, that this characteristic sometimes gives them the status of “luxury accommodation” despite of the fact that they are often rustic constructions in which natural stone and wood predominate.
