In Portuguese the Caminho da Costa is an increasingly popular route from Porto, up the coast through beautiful towns such as Vila do Conde, Viana do Castelo, Baiona and Vigo, joining up with the Central route at Redondela. Those following the Spiritual Variant will head westwards from Pontevedra to Vilanova de Arousa and take the chartered pilgrim boat up the Ría Arousa to Padrón, a day’s walk from Santiago.

This guide also contains information on the Spiritual Variant from Vilanova de Arousa by boat up to Padrón, via the estuary up which the body of St James was said to have travelled in a stone boat. Contains line maps, height profiles, photographs, accommodation details and facilities.
