Route of the Father Sarmiento.
The Padre Sarmiento route runs through the Rías de Pontevedra and Arousa, a 170-kilometer path that ends in Santiago de Compostela. It was named in memory of Fray Martín Sarmiento’s pilgrimage, which he documented in his 1745 book “Trip to Galizia”.
Throughout the Salnés region, the Padre Sarmiento route takes you through the most incredible landscapes of valleys and rivers, through vineyards and fishing villages.
The route is divided into stages that combine nature, history, culture and art. The first stage starts in the city of Pontevedra towards Poio to reach Sanxenxo. From there our second stage takes us to O Grove, on a wonderful walk along the sea. The third stage is a circular route in the O Grove area through the Isla de la Toja with its picturesque hermitage. The fourth stage takes us through a landscape of swamps and vineyards to Cambados, the capital of Albariño. From Cambados we walk along the sea until we reach the “Port of Compostela”, Vilagarcía de Arousa. On the penultimate stage, we leave the sea behind us to go through forests to Padrón. Finally, in the last stage, we will unite with the route of the Portuguese Camino de Santiago from Padrón to Santiago de Compostela.
