It’s wonderful to be able to have such a short stage during this day. This way, we have the opportunity to have much more time to visit Pontevedra. Today’s section provides us with a very pleasant walk from Arcade to Pontevedra, during which we will get to know relevant facts of history. Ready?


We leave Arcade by the famous bridge of Pontesampaio, a bridge in the province of Pontevedra that is witness to the epic battle against the French troops led by General Ney, during the War of Independence in June 1809. This battle meant the victory of the Galician and Spanish army over the French, with its consequent withdrawal from this territory.
