Short-break Camino Portugues Central in 3 days
This Short-break Camino Portugues Central of the Camino Portugues, or Portuguese Way will take you along the last 65km of the route historically followed by Portuguese pilgrims on their way to Santiago.
This 3 stage walk has charming Pontevedra as the starting point. Pontevedra is a wonderful and charming old town with a maritime feel and cobbled streets.
Walk from the picturesque streets in Pontevedra’s medieval old town and follow the yellow arrows across the Galician countryside and the towns of Caldas de Reis and Padrón, the hometown of Galicia’s most acclaimed poet, Rosalía de Castro, and reputedly the place where St James first landed in Galicia.
Take time to enjoy lots of delicious local foods and drinks along this part of the Camino. It is also the best place to try the world-famous Padron peppers, of course.
This short break is a perfect idea for pilgrims that are short on time but still want to experience the Camino. This is a more rural experience than the classic Camino Frances.
This is not a very challenging hike but a medium level of fitness is required.
It is also the best place to try the world-famous Padron peppers, of course. It’s not surprising that this route is one of the most popular Portuguese Camino routes.
