The architectural grandeur of the present monuments on the route from Oporto to Santiago de Compostela are fascinating – its continuous contrast between water and land mixed with the simplicity of the Atlantic Ocean – in many places absolutely untouched and with excellent fluvial beaches and green hills, is no less interesting. You can also testify the abundant cult testimonies to the Apostle Santiago that can be contrasted throughout the cities of the coast.

This stage ends at Mestre’s beach.
Throughout this stage we will find several military constructions that were born to protect the borders between Portugal and Spain, nowadays fraternally inseparable. The Cathedral of Viana and the Museums of Costume, Art and Archaeology are interesting places to visit in the city, where we will have the opportunity to collect your stamp for the credential. Then, again, we intend to surprise you with the visit of Vila Praia de Âncora, where you can find crystal clear water beaches mixed with hills and forests – an amazing combination.
We will finish this stage at the beach of Moledo where you can observe the Ínsua’s island. Our eyes will be able to relax with these fantastic views, being prepared to receive the next stage.

Galicia is the region with the biggest variety of seafood in the world and here you will start to enjoy them!
We’ll end up in Panxón, a fishing village and a summer touristic destination by excellence.
This final part of the stage has dazzling views to the only national maritime-terrestrial park of the country – Cies Islands – maybe we have enough time to go there!
Finally, in this final stage you can see, for the first time, the towers of the Cathedral of Santiago. You will never forget this mental image, we assure you!
Later on and entering in the city through Rosalía de Castro’s Avenue, we will arrive at Praza do Obradoiro, where Santiago’s Cathedral is waiting for you to give that affectionate and majestic welcome that has been offering to millions of pilgrims and tourists for centuries.
There is no better greeting for the achievement of your goal. You can not express it with words, you have to feel it, live it.
