It runs from Vilanueva de Arousa . . . but the time varies with the tides. This is the website of the boat I took to Padron
It was a lovely ride passing many crosses along the banks of the river commerorating the route Saint James took towards Santiago.
I walked from Porto - Santiago using the Variante Espiritual and received my compostela without any difficulty late May this year. Loved this route, and thourougly enjoyed the boat ride from Vilanueva de Arousa to Padron. Check out the "HOPE HOUSE" donativo for lodging near Vilanueva de...
I highly recommend Camino Portuguese starting in Tui Spain (Or even better across the river from Tui in Valença, Portugal). Valença is an easy 1 ½ hour train ride from Porto(great little city). Once you reach Pontevedra, you can opt to take the Variente Spiritual which includes the Pedra e...
Hello - I did the costal route from Porto via Caminha then to Tui and Pontevedra mid May. From Pontevedra I went west via Combarro (great little Celtic town in Galicia) to get on the Variente Espiritual to reach Santiago via Padron. The stretch from Comabarro to Vilanova de Arousa was one of...

BlueSocks Hostel is Great! Right on the river in a wonderful part of town. You might consider taking the metro out of town towards Matosinhos to avoid a long, not so pleasant walk out of town. Also consider the Variente Espiritual once you reach Pontevedra in Spain- very very nice. Be well!!
Hello to all - I leave for Porto this Friday and hope to mail some stuff from the Porto Airport to Ivar for storage in Santiago. Do any of you know whether there is a post office at the airport and whether it will be open Saturday, May 19?
Hello all -
I leave the US for Portugal May 18 for my second Camino and will arrive Porto early afternoon the 19th. I've been planning on walking the costal route, but am having second thoughts. Any comments, suggestions on the costal vs. central vs. Braga route are welcome!
I leave for Portugal on 18 May. I will fly from USA to Lisbon, then fly Ryan Air to Porto. One can also take advantage of both bus and train from LIS to Porto. Check out Rome2Rio.com Great site!
