Do you want to do the Camino along the coast, but you don’t have many days and still want to obtain the Compostela? Then this is the ideal route for you: the Portuguese Way along the coast from Baiona.
Your journey begins in the historic town of Baiona, one of the jewels of the Galician Atlantic coast. This place was the first port to receive the announcement of the discovery of America, and this has been marking all its festivities and traditions throughout the centuries, until today, making it a unique tourist destination for the most beach-going pilgrims.
We will enter, from here, in an unparalleled journey along the Vigo estuary, one of the most impressive Galician coasts, full of the greatest “mariñeiro” spirit of the place, where the fishing villages will be the protagonists. And you know what that means, don’t you?
Indeed, on this route you will enjoy one of the greatest gastronomic offers of the sea, as well as emblematic sites where you can enjoy the aroma of salt water, such as coastal fortresses and monasteries.
This route is a little less crowded than other neighboring routes, so we will have a perfect route for a few days of disconnection and tranquility, although we will continue bumping into a lot of services, bars and restaurants, where we can enjoy the unique and exquisite coastal cuisine.
