The Spiritual Variant is an alternative to the traditional itinerary of the Portuguese Way. An adventure in which you will recreate the boat trip of the remains of the Apostle Santiago from Palestine to Galicia. Yes By boat! And the novelty of this route is that you can make a stage by sea. A beautiful route that crosses the waters of the Arousa estuary and ascends the Ulla river, contemplating the only fluvial maritime Way of the Cross in the world.

And as if that were not enough, on the walking route of the Spiritual Variant some of the most beautiful scenery in this part of Galicia awaits you: the monastery of A Armenteira and the so-called ‘Ruta da Pedra e da Auga’, a beautiful nature trail along the Armenteira river where you will discover countless water mills.
