The Camino de Santiago from Baiona to Santiago is the last stage of the Portuguese Way along the coast: This stage begins in the beautiful town of Baiona. Baiona is an elegant fishing village located in the heart of the Rías Baixas. We recommend visiting the Monterreal Castle, in addition to going for a stroll along Baoina’s famous promenade. Another recommendation is to try Baiona’s famous white wine as well as their delicious seafood.

From Baiona to Santiago, we will walk along the Atlantic coast heading towards Vigo, a perfect stage for doing in the summer months. On this Camino de Santiago route, we will be able to take in the beauty of the Cíes Islands.

We will reach the city of Redondela, where the Portuguese Way that follows the coast meets up with the Portuguese Way that goes inland. We will also visit the city of Padrón, which is known for being the birthplace of the most famous Galician poet of all time, Rosalía de Castroy, as well as for their famous Padrón peppers.

We will continue walking until we reach our final destination, Santiago de Compostela.
