Information

This is the first stage of the itinerary that runs exclusively through Galician lands. This is an exciting route from A Guarda along the spectacular rocky coastline of the southern Baixo Miño, passing through Oia before arriving in Baiona. In Oia we will be able to know the traditional customs associated with the fishing villages and in Baiona we will enjoy its beautiful old town and a walk along the
Fortress of Monterreal.

Note that this stage can be divided in two, making a first section from A Guarda to Oia and a second section from Oia to Baiona.

 

Map

Our tour today is very simple. We will set course for Oia following the coastline, with the Atlantic always open to our left. We will leave A Guarda from the promenade, following the route of the cetarias. Once we have arrived at the Cetaria Redonda, we will have to follow the indications to go out to the PO-552 road. The route now runs along the side of the road, sometimes signposted, crossing the counties of A Guarda and O Rosal, a land of excellent wines, towards the town of Baiona.

The hermitage of San Sebastián will greet us on our arrival in the town of Oia. From here, the road becomes more interesting as you get closer to the ocean. At this point there are only a few metres left to reach the village of Portecelo in Oia. After a couple of kilometres along the Estrada Real, we will descend again on a track to a level of the road closer to the coast.

We walk a few meters and reach the main town of Oia, perfect for a stop, rest and even eat.

We take the track that goes down to the beach of Oia
