View attachment 133504
The ferry is the primary means of crossing the Mino River, and its closure would be a major issue. for perigrinos and the broader community.I am not at all familiar with the Portuguese routes and the significance of this, and I see that it was a news story from May 2022. Perhaps someone can explain what it means to pilgrims.
HI,We publish this post because many pilgrims go to the Ferryboat "Santa Rita de Cássia" and find themselves with the unpleasant surprise that it is not operational.
Since April 2022, with the support of the Xunta de Galicia, the Concello da Guarda and the Câmara Municipal de Caminha, AGAN+ has launched the XacobeoTransfer.com service to cross the Miño River for pilgrims, tourists and residents (on foot or by bicycle) as a quality alternative, safe, regular and well valued by pilgrims.
This was also the case when I walked the Camino da Costa in 2019. The hospitalera in Vila Praia de Ancora recommended this guy. At the Tunel just before Moleda do not take the option to head into Camiha but continue along the costal path. You will arrive at two cafes side by side. Have a coffee and phone the boat man and he will come and take you across. He charged 5 euros and likes to have 4 or 5 people in the boat. It is quite an experience as he just takes you over the estuary and tips you out on the beach.
