Ciudad de Pontevedra - Galicia
[ LA BARCA DEL PEREGRINO ® ]

STAGE 1 / Pontevedra →Armenteira 23km

The variant is part of the Portuguese Way and begins in Pontevedra, in the Alba area, just two kilometers from the center. It crosses the City of Poio and heads to Combarro, a picturesque fishing town where its cobbled streets and more than 30 horres, which make it a place of great beauty, will not leave anyone indifferent.

The first stage concludes in Armenteira, a mountain town that houses the Armenteira Monastery, of great interest dating back to 1162, and offers accommodation upon availability to pilgrims. The Sisters of the monastery offer vespers and blessing to the Pilgrim at 7:00 p.m.

STAGE 2 - Armenteira→Vilanova de Arousa 24 km

The second stage runs from Armenteira to Vilanova on a route of low difficulty. From Armenteira to Pontearnelas the Pilgrim will walk along one of the most beautiful routes in the Rías Baixas: “Ruta da Pedra e da Auga” a unique natural area that runs along a path on the edge of a stream, surrounded by great vegetation, century-old trees, old mills…in a magical enclave.

After this route, the pilgrim passes through Ribadumia to end the day in Vilanova de Arousa, a coastal town where its beaches and gastronomy will delight all pilgrims.
