The Portuguese Coastal Camino Last 100km is the last stretch of the Portuguese Coastal Camino. This Portuguese Coastal Route or Caminho da Costa starts in the elegant seaside town of Baiona, in the heart of the Rías Baixas, famous for its Albariño white wine and delicious shellfish. Pilgrims can walk over 7 days from Baiona to arrive in Santiago de Compostela.
This is a superb Camino route, ideal for the Summer months. The weather along the Portuguese Coastal Camino Last 100km can be quite rainy during the year but it clears up in the summer months and the climate is comparable to the Pacific North West region of North America.
There are many things to see on this route which should appeal to those interested in a more simplistic life, filled with history, great food, wine, and beaches.
Visit Monte Real castle in Baiona, stroll along the seafront and go for a swim in the ocean before starting your journey. From Baiona, you will follow the coast trail to Vigo, enjoying views of the magnificent Cíes Islands.
The fishing city of Vigo boasts many fine buildings of Romanesque architecture with a host of museums that will keep any history buff entertained. In addition, a visit to the historic town square (Casco Vello) is advised as is taking some time to relax on one of the city’s many beaches.
The Portuguese Coastal Camino joins the classic Camino Portugues in the town of Redondela where you will start meeting fellow pilgrims. You will continue your journey passing many small villages and towns such as Pontesampaio, wonderful Pontevedra, the spa town of Caldas de Reis and Padrón, home of the famous peppers.
Once in Santiago de Compostela, you can get your ‘Compostela’ pilgrim certificate! This trip is also available as a guided tour, see details here: Portuguese Coastal Camino Guided. This route has excellent reviews with many 5 star ratings.
