The Compostella collectors will love this one ! Makes you wonder why this one can be shorter and qualify but Coruna or just directly from either Finisterra/Muxia doesn't.

@DoughnutANZ Thanks for posting the information on this Camino.

When looking at a map the route seems odd, in that you walk the northern edge of the Ria de Muros y Noia as far as Noia and then start on the southern edge from Porto do Son back to Noia before heading inland to Santiago.

Do you or any other forum member happen to know if there is some significance to this and whether there is a walking stage from Noia to Portoo do Son or whether you would take public transport or a boat?

Hi, I had a quick look on Google Maps and didn't have the problem that you highlighted and so I suspect there are towns with similar names in this area.

Below is a route that I looked at on Google Maps. Please be aware that while the route follows the towns listed on the route it isn't necessarily the Camino route. Google Maps tends to route walkers along roads whereas many Caminos will route along walking paths that Google Maps doesn't have access to.

Shared route
From Muros to Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela via AC-550.

To see this route visit https://maps.app.goo.gl/FPnNL94zzFr2cRb37

Edit: Sorry, you are correct. I misread the towns. I will have another look.

Having looked at the two sites that I found with information about this Camino I can't find an answer to your question.

You are correct. It is not clear how to get from Noia to Porto do Son.

Found this which may help:

The route has the peculiarity of having a double starting point: from both banks of the Muros-Noia estuary .

The northern Muradana route is somewhat longer (about 80 km), while the Sonense route is about 53 km long. Once you meet in Noia, the tour continues through Lousame and heads inland through Rois, to then approach the final destination: the tomb of the Apostle in the cathedral of Santiago.

We will highlight 2 very special routes to travel the Camino de Santiago from the Muros-Noia estuary ; one that goes from west to east and the second that has two starting points: the port of Muros and the watchtower of Porto do Son.

 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

Selective economic development— a cause or effect, or both.
 
Ideal pocket guides for during & after your Camino. Each weighs only 1.4 oz (40g)!
Shorter than 100 km? Are you including the entire route to Santiago?
I haven't measured an off road track but certainly the road distance is well under 100klm from both start points, however the Northern route looks to be a little longer.

Do we have anyone on the forum who has actually walked this Camino?

Thanks @Blister Bill for your research on this way.

Hi, my friend and I are planning to do a Camino in August 2024. We would like to do around 200 km across 10-12 days, but ideally we would like to avoid the major busy routes like the Portuguese or...
