Ready to spend 8 incredible days walking from Tui to Santiago de Compostela?

The Portuguese Central Way (and especially those tours starting from Tui) in the last 5 years became the second most popular walking pilgrimage.


Easy to explain:
– Is not as busy and touristy as the French Way
– you can walk in a beautiful uncontaminated nature
– it’s nice to discover the south of Galicia
– It’s definitely cheaper compared to the French Way

This long way (all marked) goes from Lisbon to Galicia, and its path passes through nice forests, hamlets in the countryside, and you will cross many Roman and medieval bridges. It also takes you in towns with great historical importance, such as Tui or Pontevedra.

Our Official Partner Galiwonders.com will make it easier for you to complete the last 100 km of this route, also known as the Galician part of the Portuguese Camino (the minimum required to get the Compostela once arrived in Santiago).

Please note that this itinerary is very flexible and if you have a different idea in mind and you want to add or remove, nights, services, just let us know.

Tour’s Programs

Arrival in Tui, beginning of the last 100 km of the Portuguese Way.

The route begins in Tui, which is a town located in the Spanish border with Portugal.
Before you start the walk to O Porriño, we recommend you to visit the Cathedral, and bridge designed by Gustave Eiffel.
This stage is a bit more difficult than the others as there will be a few ups and downs, but the wonderful views over the ocean are well worth the effort.
Redondela is a small town and is quite limited in terms of accommodation, this is why many pilgrims carry on to Arcade, a village which is only 7 km further (this way, they walk a little bit more in this stage and a bit less the next day).
From this point up to Santiago, the path will be the same as the traditional Portuguese Camino, so you may see more Pilgrims on the way.
Pontesampaio is a village which is worth seeing, it is interesting to learn about the historical events which took place there, and cross the Roman Bridge over the Verdugo river.
This stage ends in Pontevedra, a beautiful town which is famous due to its historical centre and its squares made of stone.
Our way out of Pontevedra will lead us back to the rural side of Galicia, so we will be able to enjoy the woods and streams.
Many pilgrims stop in Barro to see the Natural Park of the Barosa River with its cascades and mills.
Finally, we will arrive in Caldas de Reis, a town which is famous for its thermal spring waters and spa resorts.

Today, the Camino passes peacefully through small villages, with dispersed houses along the route.
Padrón is known as the first place on land, spotted by the boat which carried the remains of Saint James the Apostle. Also, it is the birthplace of great authors like Rosalía de Castro or Camilo José Cela.
The last stage is the longest of this itinerary, so we advise you to start early.
In the beginning, the path will take you through rural landscapes as in the previous days, but during the last kilometres, as we approach Santiago, the landscape becomes more urban.
When you get to Santiago do not forget to go to the Pilgrim’s Office with your Pilgrim Passport if you want to get your “Compostela” (Pilgrim Certificate).
