In recent years, it has been attracting numerous pilgrims, due to the beauty of the route, an eminently rural route, the possibility of walking by the sea, even stepping on the sand of its beaches; as well as for the cultural wealth that it treasures. These are the most characteristic signs of this Jacobean route.

It runs along the Atlantic Ocean, beginning its journey in the city of Porto.

The route is also rich in rock art and other ethnographic elements such as the Montedor windmills.

After passing through Areosa, Carreço, Afife, Vila Praia de Âncora and Moledo, we will reach the end of our stage, Caminha, at the Miño River estuary. This will be the last Portuguese city that we will find on our pilgrimage and border with Spain.
