Starting in Tui

Time of past OR future Camino

Is Tui to Santiago further than 100km and therefore qualifies for the Compostela?
Also, does anyone know how to get to Tui from Vigo train station?
thanks in advance.

Hi, yes Tui is quite a common starting point and will qualify you for a compostela. Be sure to try to get stamped twice a day though as I think you're supposed to if you start in Galicia.
I think there are buses between Vigo to Tui.
I also met someone who walked it!

Thanks for your quick response. Some more questions...
Where do I get the credencial from?
And has anyone walked it in February / March time? What sort of weather can I expect?

I'm a big fan of getting a credential in advance:
But I think you can get them in the cathedral in Tui. Not totally sure though as it was closed when I was there.

I walked in May and it was really very very hot, much more so than the more northern routes at that time of year. Earlier in the year may be a better temperature!
