You will say goodbye to Baiona cycling through a residential area that will gradually lead you to a more rural environment with scattered villages, interspersed with the occasional wooded stretch. After a short drive on the road you will reach a series of villages before arriving at the first stop of the day, the city of Vigo.
After the usual stop, you will leave Vigo following a long road through quiet villages, after several kilometers, the houses will be replaced by trees and great panoramic views of the city of Vigo and the estuary, full of rafts; in the background you can also see the Cies Islands.
You will descend with this wonderful scenery to the town of Redondela, where you can make another technical stop. From this point only 6 km separate you from Arcade, a small fishing village famous for its oysters. So you know, good place to eat.
Shortly after saying goodbye to Arcade, you will enjoy one of the most iconic sceneries of the entire Portuguese Way, Ponte Sampaio. It is a colossal stone bridge that spans the river Verdugo and where, during the War of Independence, a battle was fought that led to the withdrawal of French troops in Galicia. After crossing the bridge you will pedal past pazos, hórreos and cruceiros and small villages until you reach Pontevedra.
