I am planning my next caminowalk from Verin. Try to find out how to travel from Porto to Verin. Do I have to go to Vigo first or can I go by bus or buses more directly from Porto to Verin or near Verin? If I have to go to Vigo first, will there be buses from Vigo to Verin? Will I have to go via Ourense? Bjørg

If Porto Alto the same as Porto it looks as though the Monbus line goes from Porto to Verin.

Give it a try. http://www.monbus.es

Porto Alto seems to be a smal place between Ourense and Verin. Thank you for trying. I am looking for a bus from Porto in Portugal to Verin. When you look at the map, the roads go in directions which make me think that there may be bus conection. Bjørg

Hi,

You can get a bus from Porto to Chaves, just over the border from Verin. The following Portugese website http://www.rede-expressos.pt gives times and routes. I believe it involves a change of bus at Vila Real.

My mother-in-law is from Verin and tells me that there are regular buses fom Chaves passing through and stopping at Verin although I haven't been able to find a timetable on-line for these so can't confirm. As an alternative, you could always walk to Verin from Chaves (about 30km) or get a taxi from Chaves to the border and start your Camino from there (about 17km). I'm pretty sure there is waymarking on that route from the border at Feces de Abaixo.

The tourist office in Verin (http://microsites.centromultimedia.net/ ... /index.htm) may be able to supply further information on the buses.

Are you heading via Laza or Sandias when you leave Verin?

Hope all goes well. Cheers
Mig.

Great! Thank you! I have been walking Via de la Plata in parts, and reached Ourense this April (via Laza). Had to stop there. No more holiday. This summer I walked in France (via Le Puy). The "problem" now is that Ourense - Santiago - Finestere - Muxia is about 8 days walk, and I usually have 12 days. So I thought I could walk a part of the southern route from Gudiña to Ourense. (Now via Sandias.) Now you gave me the idea of starting at the border or even in Chaves. But then I need a guide or a good map... If you now more about this posibility, I am very thankful! Bjørg

The XACOBEO 2010 website has details of various stages around the Verin area including A Gudina to Verin and Feces (Portugese border) to Verin as well as providing a basic tool for a tailor made itenary. See the following link and then select as required.

Having only ever driven between Verin and the border I can't vouch for the consistency of the waymarking but from the main road N532 there is obvious signage where the route diverts off through some of the side villages so I don't think that you would encounter many problems. The main road from the border to Verin is wide with a good hard shoulder to walk on.

Be aware that Verin to Sandias is about 40km. There are some steep climbs early on although the bulk of the walk is relatively flat.

Regards
Mig

Thank you! Planning a walk gives (almost) as much joy as walking it. Discovering new posibilities is part of that joy. :D Bjørg
