Day 3 Trek to Arcade

Today’s stage offers more of a challenge with a couple of steep climbs, the first of which opens to a rewarding view of the sea before leading you downhill to Redondela.

As Redondela is quite small, accommodation is limited, so it’s best to carry on a short distance (7 km) further to Arcade, saving the legs for a shorter walk tomorrow.

Day 4 Trek to Pontevedra

From this point to Santiago de Compostela, the Camino merges with the Portuguese Coastal Way (an alternative route along the coast), so you may see more peregrinos on the road.

Next, stop in the village of Ponte Sampaio for insight into the historical events that took place here, and then cross the Roman bridge over the Verdugo River to end the stage in Pontevedra. One of the most beautiful Spanish towns, Pontevedra is famous for its well-preserved historic centre complete with stunning stone architecture from centuries past.

Along the way, consider stopping in Barro to see the numerous centuries-old mills and cascading waterfalls of the Natural Park of the Barosa River before finally arriving in Caldas de Reis. Known for its thermal spring waters, take advantage of the spa resorts available and soak tired feet and muscles in a spa treatment.
