EDUCamino - The Portuguese Way 5/5 Day 1 Tui - Start of your journey

You will be booked in a hotel in the heart of Tui. The rooms are en-suite. Take a walk through the picturesque streets of this town, then as you approach the Plaza de San Fernando, the silhouette of the west-facing facade of the 12th-century cathedral will provide you with a lasting memory.

EDUCamino - The Portuguese Way 5/5 Day 2From Tui to O Porrino (16km,4h)

From the old port of Tui the Camino winds its way up to the old town, following the so-called Camino da Barca. Then through the Tunel das Monxas, the Camino enters a very steep section and leads to the evocative bridge of San Telmo. From there, travelling over a less abrupt terrain, we come to the town of O Porrino.

EDUCamino - The Portuguese Way 5/5 Day 3From O Porrino to Arcade (22km, 5h30)

The terrain becomes easier as we cross the Louro valley. Keeping the valley to the east, after a gentle climb you arrive at the chapel of Santiaguino de Antas; a pleasant place to take a rest. We now enter a wide expanse of woodland. Surrounded by pine trees, the Camino starts its descent through the hamlet of Setefontes and comes to Arcade.

EDUCamino - The Portuguese Way 5/5 Day 4From Arcade to Pontevedra (11km,3h)

Reaching the historic site of Ponte Sampaio, the Camino crosses the Verdugo River. During the War of Independence, Napoleon's army suffered one of its greatest defeats in Galicia at this bridge. Heading up a cobbled footpath we come to the 13th century church of Santa Maria. Views of the Bay of Vigo are stunning!

EDUCamino - The Portuguese Way 5/5 Day 5From Pontevedra to Caldas de Reis (24km,6h)

Passing chestnut groves, the Camino leaves Pontevedra and runs parallel to the railway for a while. After passing through the hamlet of Ponte Cabras, we encounter the rectory of Santa Maria de Alba, tucked away among pine and eucalyptus trees. Emerging from the dense woods of Lombo da Maceira, you'll see a statue of Saint James the pilgrim, his staff pointing the way to proceed. The lovely village of Tibo, with its fountain, public washing place and stone cross, brings us to Caldas do Rei.

EDUCamino - The Portuguese Way 5/5 Day 6From Caldas de Reis to Padron (18km, 4h30)

Exiting the town, we take a bridge over the river Umia that leads us to a fountain of hot spring water that has lent the town its name since Roman times. Entering the woods once more, the Camino make its way gently uphill to the hamlet of Santa Marina. Going downhill, we then cross the river Fontenlo. Finally, following a Camino lined with pine trees, we catch up again with the river as we arrive in Padron. Padron is famous for being the first land sighted by the ship bearing the body of Saint James.

EDUCamino - The Portuguese Way 5/5 Day 7 From Padron to Santiago (28km,7h)

The Camino passes through many small villages and hamlets before arriving at the Baroque sanctuary of A Esclavitude. On a hilltop to the left stands the mysterious, abandoned ruins of the hillfort Castro Lupario, and couple of kilometres later, we come to the oldest wayside crosses in Galicia. As we near Agro dos Monteiros, it is now possible to see the towers of the cathedral. Finally the Camino passes by the ruins of a castle known as A Rocha Vella, before entering the city of the Apostle.
