Itinerary

Day 1:

Arrival in Baiona, beginning of the last 100 km of the Portuguese Coastal Camino.

Day 2: Baiona– Vigo (23 km)

The route begins in Baiona, a small town where the first news of the discovery of America was received. The caravel Pinta docked in its port when it came back from the new continent.
The route will take you along the beaches of Nigrán and you will be able to admire the Cíes Islands.
The landscape in the last kilometres, will become more urban, as you get into Vigo, the most populated town in Galicia.

Day 3: Vigo – Redondela (15 km)

Pilgrims will be able to take in the impressive veiws of the Estuary of Vigo on the left.
This walking day is a bit shorter and less intense, so you can enjoy a quick dip in once of the many beaches you come across from Vigo to Redondela.

Day 4: Redondela – Pontevedra (20 km)

From this point up to Santiago, the path will be the same as the traditional Portuguese Camino, so you may see more Pilgrims on the way.
Pontesampaio is a village which is worth seeing, it is interesting to learn about the historical events which took place there, and cross the Roman bridge over the Verdugo river.
This stage ends in Pontevedra, a beautiful town which is famous due to its historical centre and its squares made of stone.

Day 5: Pontevedra – Caldas de Rei (21 km)

Our way out of Pontevedra will lead us back to the rural side of Galicia, so we will be able to enjoy the woods and streams.
Many pilgrims stop in Barro to see the Natural Park of the Barosa River with its cascades and mills.
Finally, we will arrive in Caldas de Reis, a town which is famous for its thermal spring waters and spa resorts.

Day 6: Caldas de Rei – Padrón (19 km)

Today, the Camino passes peacefully through small villages, with dispersed houses along the route.
Padrón is known as the first place on land spotted by the boat which carried the remains of Saint James the Apostle. Also, it is the birthplace of great authors like Rosalía de Castro or Camilo José Cela.

Day 7: Padrón – Santiago (24,5 km)

The last stage is the longest of this itinerary, so we advise you to start early.
At the beginning the path will take you through rural landscapes as in the previous days, but during the last kilometers, as we approach Santiago, the landscape becomes more urban.
When you get to Santiago do not forget to go to the Pilgrim’s Office with your Pilgrim Passport if you want to get your “Compostela” (Pilgrim Certificate).

Day 8:

Check out Santiago
