Route for Pilgrims
Day 1: Arrival in Porto
You can arrive Porto by your own or in case you want it, we can arrange your transfer from the airport or from any station you are. In case you make it with time , many relevant spots awaits to be visited. Moreover, the wide ranfe of gastronomic delights will allow you to start the Camino with plenty of energy!
Day 2: Stage Porto – Labruge(25 km/ 15 miles)
This is a long but not particularly difficult stage, as it runs along the coast and through flat stretches, passing along a large number of beaches with wooden walkways and cycle paths in beautiful stretches where you can enjoy the view of the Atlantic Ocean. If it is too long, many pilgrims choose to split the stage by dividing it in two, spending the night in places like Labruge or Angeiras.
Day 3: Stage Labruge – Póvoa de Varzim(14 km/8 miles)
On the way to the end of the stage we will pass through Vila do Conde, a town with a great cultural heritage such as its aqueduct, the main church and the fortress of San Juan. Once in Póvoa de Varzim we will be able to appreciate how beautiful this town is, and we will have to make a tour around it to deeply appreciate all the monuments and heritage it has to offer.
Day 4: Stage Póvoa de Varzim – Esposende20 km/ 12 miles
During this stage we will leave Póvoa de Varzim to get into a slightly different route, as we will walk through different types of paths: sometimes the Way will run next to the sea and beaches and some others we will walk through paved roads. It may not be the most beautiful stage, but it will worth it.
Day 5: Satge Esposende – Viana do Castelo(25 km/ 15 miles)
In this stage we will leave the beaches and sea views, but don’t worry, it will only be for the little more than 25 km that this stage lasts. But this does not mean you will not enjoy beautiful landscapes, such as the path to Neiva river and the old town of Viana do Castelo, end of this 4th stage of the Portuguese Coastal Way.
Day 6: Stage Viana do Castelo – Caminha27 km
It should be noted that at the beginning of our stage, in Viana do Castelo, you will have to decide whether to follow the route indicated by the yellow arrows along the interior of the road or to turn off towards the coast to continue walking along the beaches and the sea, with the risk of not having the appropriate indications to follow the path.
Day 7: Stage Caminha – Porto Mougás(24 km/15 miles)
We reach Galicia at last, after crossing the river Miño by ferry and leave Caminha and Portugal behind. In this stage we will get to know the beautiful pictures of the Galician community, such as the Monastery of Oia or the fishing village of A Guarda.
Day 8: Stage Porto Mougás – A Ramallosa16 km
In this stage, a remarkable location is Baiona. This village has beautiful sights where many pilgrims decide to end the 7th stage and enjoy the village, while some others choose to move on until reaching Ramallosa village.
Day 9: Stage A Ramallosa – Vigo22 km
There is an important decision we will need to take during the last but one stage on the Coastal Way. From Ramallosa we can reach Vigo through the Official Way, by following the indications of the yellow arrows, or to walk on instead through the path next to the sea and enjoy the sights of the Atlantic Ocean, signaled by green arrows instead.
Day 10: Stage Vigo – Redondela16 km
During this stage we will have the chance to see one of the best views to Ría de Vigo, as we will be walking our route through Traída das Augas. Besides, this is the last stage before getting into the 22nd stage (Redondela – Pontevedra) of the main Portuguese Way that we left many kilometers away in Oporto.
Day 11: Stage Redondela – Pontevedra19 km
This is a very well signposted, short and gentle walk of just 19 km. The reason of finishing this short stage in Pontevedra is to appreciate all the attractions this city can offer. Here we can find the most important Historic Heritage in Galicia after Santiago de Compostela.
Day 12: Stage Pontevedra – Caldas de Reis19 km
After leaving Pontevedra we will pay a visit to Virgen de la Peregrina Church, one of the most relevant local monuments. Now it is time to penetrate the villages and small towns located along this rural journey. To mainly avoid a national road in this stage, we will have to zigzag among the villages.
Day 13: Stage Caldas de Reis – Padrón17 km
Today you will also walk next to the N-550 and sometimes walk through it. There are approximately 18 kilometers to get to padrón. Today you will leave Pontevedra province to enter in A Coruña province. You are very close to Santiago!
Day 14: Stage Padrón – Santiago de Compostela22 km
You will wake up in your accommodation in Padrón to start the day with your batteries fully charged and you will begin the walk to Santiago de Compostela, finally the destination is very close and soon you will see for the first time the towers of the Cathedral from Monte do Gozo.
