Spiritual Variant-Translatio

There is the possibility of replacing this stage of the Camino de Santiago from Tui with a boat trip that runs from Vilanova de Arousa, through the Ría de Arousa, to the Ulla River, up to Pontecesures. From there, we will resume the journey on foot to Padrón (2.5 km).

Translatio–Translation that, according to legend, was made by the stone boat, with the remains of the Apostle James from Palestine to Iria Flavia (Padrón), along with his two disciples Anastasius and Theodore.
  • Duration: 5h
  • Difficulty: Low

Breakfast and start of the stage.

After our stay in Padrón and Iria Flavia, places of great Jacobean evocation-according to legend, here the boat with the Apostle’s remains from Palestine ran aground on a “Pedrón”, which is preserved in the cathedral of that city, we head to the end of our Way.

This stage is not as spectacular as the previous ones, as there are many asphalted tracks, and the villages are no longer as bucolic.

Despite this, we are in an area where a large part of the legend of the Apostle’s “translatio” to Santiago de Compostela took place.

Arrival in Santiago de Compostela and end of our Camino de Santiago from Tui. Lodging.

If you prefer, as an alternative, you can take the Portuguese Way along the coast, which also enjoys great popularity.
