New in 2019, the Sea of Arousa Camino is a scenic Camino route also known by the names of Traslatio and Variante Espiritual. On this tour, you will be walking 160kms across the beautiful coastal region of O Salnes and up the River Ulla to the town of Padron, taking in picturesque villages, wonderful cultural heritage and lush landscapes along the way.
Starting from Praza da Peregrina in Pontevedra, the route takes you to the stunning coastal town of Combarro, Armenteira Monastery where resident nuns sing Pilgrim Mass every day, and along the superb Ruta da Pedra e da Auga natural trail to Vilanova de Arousa.
Padrón is believed to be where the boat carrying St James first landed in Galicia, as well as the hometown of the country’s most acclaimed poet, Rosalía de Castro. The last stretch of this route will bring you into Santiago de Compostela on the classic Camino Portugues trail. Please note to receive your certificate in Santiago, you will have to start your Camino in at least Vigo.
