Arrive in Porto on your own.
We start our route of the Portuguese way from the beautiful city of Porto. We can get our pilgrim ID if we make a short visit to the Sé Catedral. In Portugal the cobbled streets are characteristic, which makes the road more difficult for the “Bicigrino”, but only in this first section when crossing the city from Porto to Barcelos.
The Portuguese city of Barcelos is famous for its legend of the Barcelos rooster, a distinctive symbol of Portugal. This stage has no further difficulties as it is a little shorter. A visit to Ponte de Lima is worthwhile, as Ponte de Lima is the oldest city in Portugal and is a World Heritage Site.
We'll leave this section behind by crossing the bridge over the Lima River that gives the city its name. At this point we will cross forests and must follow the yellow arrows as before. Although this part of the route is not easy, the surroundings are spectacular. We reach the city of Tui via the bridge under which the Miño River flows, which is the border between Spain and Portugal.
At this point there is no other way to Santiago for bicycles, we have to take the same route as the pilgrims who walk. We will cross different cities, but the most characteristic cities that offer all the desired services will be Porriño and Redondela. Once in Redondela, it is only 18 km that separate us from Pontevedra.
In Pontevedra we can visit the famous pilgrim church, which is shaped like a scallop shell, another characteristic feature of pilgrims. The last effort to reach the pilgrimage capital is sixty-six kilometers. This last stage is divided into two parts, the first almost effortlessly to Teo in La Coruña and the second to the cathedral. Arrived in Santiago, we will feel the longed-for and famous satisfaction of the pilgrim.
CHECK OUT and end of services.
