What to see and what to do on the Camino from Tui

STAGE FROM TUI TO PORRIÑO AND REDONDELA

 

We start with the town of Tui where the International Bridge over the Miño river stands out, a forced passage for pilgrims. The walled enclosure from the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries, the Cathedral of Santa María (mixture of Romanesque and Gothic) as well as the Porta da Pía or Pescadería in the urban nucleus. Between the Bridge and the historic center we cannot miss the river walk along the Miño.

Redondela, located at one end of the Vigo estuary, in which the island of San Simón emerges. We can see a Roman milestone that welcomes pilgrims as they pass through the town, as well as its two viaducts from the second half of the XNUMXth century. The pilgrims' hostel, the Casa de Petán or Santa Teresa from the XNUMXth century, the Church of Santiago and the Vilavella Convent stand out.

In Ponte Sampaio, its bridge with ten semicircular arches stands out, as well as the Church of Santa María, of Romanesque origin from the XNUMXth century.

In Pontevedra stands out the Ponte do Burgo, which pilgrims cross as they leave the historic center. In the old town stands out the Sanctuary of the Virgin Pilgrim, patron saint of the city, with a scallop plan; inside, the carvings of Santiago, San Roque and the Virgin with pilgrims' habit stand out.

In the Plaza de la Ferreria, which is entered through the Porta do Camiño, is the Convent of San Francisco next to the Plaza de la Estrella, with its Casa de Caras and the Gardens of Castro Sampedro.

 

PONTEVEDRA-CALDAS DE REI STAGE

We start the entrance of Caldas de Rei with the Church of Santa María, of Romanesque origin. The Church of Santo Tomas Becket, built in 1890, the Church of Santa Maria de Bemil, San Andrés de César and San Esteban de Saiar, all of Romanesque origin.

One of the great attractions of the town is that it is bathed by the Umia and Bermaña rivers, which pilgrims can cross thanks to their Roman bridges. Its waters have therapeutic properties, which is why there are numerous spas in the town. In the Plaza, the public fountain known as Las Burgas stands out, which is a good place to stop to cool off in its medicinal waters.

 

STAGE FROM CALDAS DE REI TO PADRON

We enter the eminently pilgrim city of Padrón, which some mark as the true kilometer 0 of all the itineraries of the Camino de Santiago, where we highlight the Neoclassical Church of Santiago from the XNUMXth century, the seal of the church shows the scene of the arrival of the body of Santiago at the port of Census. Under the main altar is "the Pedrón”, A stone that is said to have been used to tie the boat in which the apostle Santiago, already dead, was transferred from Palestine to the Galician coast. It is, therefore, a symbol for many pilgrims.

The XNUMXth century Carmen fountain, next to the Carmen convent.

The Church of Saint Mary of Hebron, The Church of Saint Anthony of Hebron.

The Collegiate Church of Iria Flavia.

The Hermitage of Santiaguiño. Its great attraction is to travel the Via Crucis of 136 steps to reach it. Inside there is a stone image of the Saint, as well as a group of rocks where the Apostle preached. Under the Hermitage is the fountain that, according to tradition, sprouted after hitting the apostle with his staff.
