1st day: Arrival in VIGO
Fill in your pilgrim’s passport and visit this active and beautiful city.

2nd day: VIGO - REDONDELA (16 km - 4h - difficulty 2/3)
Breakfast and start of the stage. From the city of Vigo, continue your coastal Camino with the Bay of Vigo to your left. Vigo is one of the seven largest cities in Galicia and is currently probably the most populated one. People from the entire region and even from other parts of Spain have always flocked to this city to work in its naval and fishing industries.
After the serenity of the isolated Mougás, Vigo will give you the experience of life in a busy town. The stage ends in Redondela where you will rejoin the original Portuguese Route.

3rd day: REDONDELA - PONTEVEDRA (19.6 km - 5h - difficulty 2/3)
Breakfast and start of the stage. The way out of Vigo might be a bit confusing, but once you manage to leave the city, the path begins to clear and the open ocean gives way to the “rías” or Galician fjords.

4th day: PONTEVEDRA - CALDAS DE REIS (21.1 km - 5h15 - difficulty 1/3)
Breakfast and start of the stage. This stage starts in the historic centre of Pontevedra, with a walk out of the old city to the millennial bridge, O Burgo, over the river Lerez, and continues along the beautiful valley of the River Gandra to San Mauro.
From here, the path widens, making for a peaceful and serene hike. We finally reach Caldas de Reis via the church of Santa Maria, close to the bridge over the River Umia, where this stage ends.

5th day: CALDAS DE REIS - PADRÓN (18.6 km - 4h30 - difficulty 1/3)
Breakfast and start of the stage. We leave Caldas de Reis via some enchanting stretches of the Way, across the Medieval bridge over the River Bermaña, following a path that leads us to the village of Cruceiro, on a picturesque trail through forests and meadows. After crossing the river Ulla, we arrive at Padrón, the place where, according to legend, the stone ship with the body of the Apostle James (Santiago) was moored.

6th day: PADRÓN - SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA (24.2 km - 6h - difficulty 2/3)
Breakfast and start of the stage. This last stage starts by leaving Padrón and continuing through Galician villages to the magnificent sanctuary of Nossa Señora da Escravitute.
You finally start to see Santiago de Compostela in the distance and at Agro dos Monteiros, you will be able to see the towers of the Cathedral for the first time.
After crossing the River Sar, you will make your way through the suburbs of the city to the Faxeira gate, the entrance for the Portuguese Route in this old city. Walk through a labyrinth of streets to Obradoiro square and its Cathedral, where the Apostle awaits you.

After breakfast, go to exchange your pilgrim’s passport, if you haven’t already done it. Alternatively, we suggest you visit the cathedral and the surrounding areas or attend a pilgrim mass.
