The Camino De Santiago is the ancient Pilgrimage trail of St James with its source in many countries and ending up at the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain.
On this section we will be following the Portuguese coastal route starting from Baiona, Galicia in North West of Spain.
Baiona is one of the most attractive and important coastal towns in Galicia. Its protected bays offer beaches with character and safe harbour in its fishing port. There’s no shortage of fresh seafood in the town’s many tapas bars and restaurants so tuck in!
Before leaving Baiona to begin your Camino, take some time to explore its medieval streets and churches as well as the Monterreal fortress on the peninsular. Then follow the Camino da Costa through countryside, forest and villages to the city of Vigo, looking out for views of the Cies islands in the Ria de Vigo estuary.
Your route merges with the Central Camino de Santiago in Redondela, taking you through more delightful Galician countryside with stops in historical Pontevedra, the spa town of Caldas de Reis and Padrón, a town that’s strongly linked to the legend of St. James, before the ultimate destination of Santiago de Compostela and its magnificent cathedral.
Your guide and our partners in Portugal will meet you on the day before you start walking to give you a full briefing and personally hand deliver your Camino Welcome Pack. This pack contains all the materials you’ll need as a pilgrim: Your Credencial (Pilgrim Passport), a scallop shell with the symbol of St. James, a roadbook with route descriptions and tips plus a few other goodies for the trail! The member of our staff will be delighted to answer any questions that you have before starting your journey to Santiago de Compostela.
