On this first stage, you can start from the center of Vigo, at the Church of Santiago de Vigo.
You will follow the entire coastline until you reach Redondela, during this journey you can enjoy the Vigo estuary, the Morrazo coast or the San Simón cove and its island. San Simón is famous for being a lazaretto at first and later a prison, during and after the Spanish Civil War.
Very close to San Simón, in Cesantes, you will finish the stage in Redondela.
After a well-deserved rest, you can visit the old town of Redondela and try one of the delicacies of the area, the Arcade oysters.
In this second stage, you will depart from Redondela towards the Roman bridge of Pontesampaio, a bridge with a fascinating history, as a key battle took place here during the War of Independence against Napoleon. The locals managed to defeat the French army and expel the Napoleonic troops.
After several kilometers walking through different villages, you will reach the endpoint of the stage, the city of Pontevedra.
Pontevedra is a historic city with a beautiful old town. If you stroll through its narrow streets, you will quickly notice both its cultural heritage and its lively atmosphere.
In this stage, we will leave Pontevedra through the O Burgo bridge until we reach the Alba marshes, a protected wetland that delights birdwatchers.
After passing through these marshes, we will enter the forest towards the Barro area. Just before reaching Briallos, there is a detour to reach the Barosa river waterfalls, we recommend that you visit them.
On the way back from Barosa, we will continue along a pleasant path full of vineyards and typical Galician houses until we reach Caldas de Reis.
Caldas de Reis is famous for its thermal waters and spa, if you feel like recovering, don’t hesitate! Take a bath and you will feel like new.
After spending the night in Caldas de Reis, we will begin the stage by venturing into the forest that belongs to the Bermaña Valley. It is a path of great beauty that will lead us to Pontecesures and its Roman bridge.
The Roman bridge of Pontecesures separates the province of Pontevedra from the province of A Coruña across the Ulla River.
About 3 kilometers later, we will reach the end of the stage, Padrón.
Padrón is famous for Rosalía de Castro, Camilo José Cela, and of course, its peppers.
In this final stage, we will leave Padrón towards Iria Flavia and A Escravitude.
In Iria Flavia, you can visit its beautiful collegiate church, and in A Escravitude, you can visit its beautiful sanctuary dedicated to the Virgin of Slavery.
