Tour Description

The Portuguese Way Easy, walk at your own speed

Did you know that we can split some walking days of the Portuguese Way in two, so you can take your time, relax, and enjoy the walk?

If you feel that walking 25 km in one day is too much (from Padrón to Santiago de Compostela, for example) we can split that walking day in two.

Check in

Tui, starting point of the last 100 km of the Portuguese Way.

Tui – O Porriño (16 km)

The last 100 km start in Tui, where we can visit the Cathedral and the bridge designed by Gustave Eiffel.

O Porriño – Redondela (15 km)

Stage of higher difficulty than the rest, but compensated by the views of the Atlantic Ocean. Many pilgrims prefer to walk 9 km more to Arcade, given the limited accommodation offer in Redondela.

Redondela – Arcade (9 km)

From Redondela to Santiago the traditional Portuguese Way joins the Portuguese Coastal Way, so you may encounter more pilgrims from this point onwards. Don’t forget to try the delicious oysters from Arcade!

Arcade – Pontevedra (12 km)

The Way to Pontevedra will take you through rural areas, forests and streams. Pontevedra is a city worth stopping in, and enjoy its spectacular old town. Don’t forget to visit the Peregrina Church.

Pontevedra – Barro (11 km)

This is a quiet stage, without major complications in terms of terrain, which runs mainly through rural areas.

Barro – Caldas de Reis (12 km)

The beginning of the stage will pass through rural areas, and the landscape will become more rural as we enter Caldas de Reis. Once in Caldas, we recommend to enjoy its thermal waters (it is a place known for its spas).

Caldas de Reis – Padrón (18 km)

The longest stage of this Easy Portuguese Way, but without major difficulties, except for a slight climb.

Padrón – Rúa de Francos / Faramello (12 km)

Today the Camino takes us through Teo, already at the gates of Santiago. Despite the rural nature of the stage, the bustle of the city is already beginning to be felt in the distance.

Rúa de Francos / Faramello – Santiago de Compostela (12 km)

As in the previous days, the trail will initially take you through rural areas, but during the last kilometers, as we get deeper into Santiago, the landscape will become more urban. Upon arrival in Santiago do not forget to ask for the Compostela at the Pilgrim’s Office, you will simply have to show your Pilgrim’s Credential.

Standard category

1* and 2* hotels

These hotels offer private rooms with private bathrooms as well as other additional services that may vary depending on the type of category: restaurant service, television, room service, dry cleaning, ironing service, etc. It is common to stay in this type of hotels in the cities along the Camino.

Hostels and pensions

These accommodations have the necessary services to cover the basic needs of cleanliness and rest at a more moderate price than the hotels . Officially, hostels and guesthouses are 1-star accommodations. However, this rating should not be taken into account when evaluating the level of comfort and quality of their services.

Superior category

3*, 4* and 5* 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.

Hoteles Boutique

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. They can be between 1* and 5*.

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.
