The town of Tui contemplates its reflection on the calm waters of the river Miño. A border town chosen by thousands of pilgrims to begin their adventure on the Portuguese Way and reach Santiago de Compostela.
If you decide to become a pilgrim on this route you will walk through small rural villages surrounded by vineyards and fields. Halfway you will find an encouraging travel companion, the Atlantic Ocean, which will guide you for much of the route, giving you amazing views of the estuaries of Vigo and Pontevedra. An ocean that will leave you to give way to beautiful medieval bridges, chapels and thermal villas.
The Portuguese Way from Tui is also a journey for the senses; you will discover landmarks of Galician gastronomy. Impossible to resist the famous Arcade oysters, a portion of mussels washed down with an unmistakable Albariño wine or to discover if the real Padrón peppers are hot… or not.
