Vigo - Redondela

The stage of the Portuguese Coastal Way from Vigo to Redondela is a 16 km route that offers an interesting mix of urban and natural landscapes, with a low difficulty level, making it accessible to most pilgrims.

Vigo: The stage begins in Vigo, where pilgrims should head towards Rúa Urzáiz, one of the main arteries of the city. This section passes through the O Calvario neighborhood, where the path is marked with yellow arrows. The route continues through urban areas until reaching more natural surroundings.

Senda da Traída das Augas: One of the main attractions of this stage is the Senda da Traída das Augas, a trail that offers panoramic views of the Vigo estuary and passes through forests, providing a peaceful and refreshing environment for walkers. This path combines dirt and asphalt sections and is appreciated both for its natural beauty and the opportunity to escape the city's hustle and bustle.

Cedeira to Redondela: As you approach Redondela, the path becomes urban once again. The arrival in Redondela is significant because here, the Portuguese Coastal Way joins the Central Portuguese Way, marking the point where the routes converge towards Santiago de Compostela.

This stage is particularly notable for its contrasts between city and nature, offering both the dynamism of Vigo and the serenity of forest trails and sea views. It is a perfect stage for those looking to experience the diversity of the Portuguese Way in a single day.
