Start your tour towards Redondela


Your first day on El Camino starts in the picturesque village of Tui, next to the Minho River. We recommend you start Camino by visiting La Cathedral de Santa María de Tui with its impressive Romanesque foundations from the 12th century and get your first pilgrims stamp (sello) in the Cathedral. From the old town of Tui, you will be walking uphill along El Camino de Barca. When you're out of Tui, you will pass the Tunel das Monxas and continue up to the beautiful bridge of San Telmo. From here on the terrain becomes a little easier on your way to O Porriño. Today´s hike will be 32 km (7 hours) long.

Today's walk is around 19 km (4-5 hours). Once you get to your destination, enjoy the city’s old town, relax after a day’s walk and have a glass of the fantastic local wine - some of the world’s best white wines are found here!


Meals: B

Reach Caldas de Reis


After you've soaked up some of the charming atmospheres of Pontevedra and enjoyed a tasty breakfast, it's time to make your way to Caldas de Reis, a small town where you can find some excellent thermal baths. On your way, you will be passing many churches and monuments, among them The Church of Santa Maria de Caldas with foundations from the 13th century. In the beautiful area of Tibo, you'll find the church of Saint Tomás Becket, a pilgrim who made a stop in Caldas in the year 1167 - remind you you are following an incredible history. Follow the Royal Road, cross the medieval-era Puente Bermaña, and reach the valley of the river Bermaña, surrounded by centuries-old forests. Today´s route will be around 22 km (4.5-5 hours) long.

Reach Padron


Today you will hike for 18 km (5-6 hours) to reach Padron, the second most important point in the pilgrim’s journey after Santiago. It is here where, according to legend, St. James’s bodily remains were brought by boat in the year 44 AC by two of his disciples. From this sacred place, his body was brought to Santiago de Compostela. On your way to Padrón, you will get to see some of the famous old water mills, churches, and beautiful scenery. In Northern Spain eating is almost a ritual ceremony, and Padrón is no exception to this. Try the Pimientos de Padrón, a little green pepper served fried and salted, simple and delicious.

Reach Santiago de Compostela


Pat yourself on the back because you've made it for your final day on the trail! After the last 25 km, passing through small villages and feeling the thrill of the finish line rushing closer, you will arrive in Santiago to get your last Pilgrim’s stamp and La Compostelana. Here, you can attend the Pilgrim’s Mass and enjoy the city of Santiago and its small streets full of restaurants and bars. Feel the history - and the thousands of pilgrims’ histories - which for many years has been building the bridge between the ancient and the modern Santiago. Have a well-earned rest in Santiago.
