Tui to Sarria

Camino(s) past & future
2013 and 2016
Hi
I am walking the Portugese Camino in September, from the book it looks like the section from Tui to Santiago is not so interesting , less bush paths, and thinking of transferring from Tui to walk the last 115 km from Sarria.
Any advice on how to get to Sarria to Tui

I walked Tui to Santiago last June. It was beautiful. This is the “wine country” of Galicia. You walk through many local vineyards, as well as fields of their locally grown kale which they use to make the delicious “Caldo Gallego”. Tui- Santiago is also less traveled than the high trafficked Sarria-Santiago. Stay with Tui and be sure to try the “furancho” along the way!

I just looked up Furancho and I see it is taking a meal and wine in a private home. Are these well marked with signage using the word - furancho? Is there a guide listing these places or do you just ask the locals if there is a furancho in town when you are ready to eat? Can you recommend specific examples that you experienced? Do these tend to be economical choices...what pricing did you experience?

Thanks ahead of time, it sounds like a wonderful experience to get home cooked food in the actual home of a local. I would love that.

Along the Camino from Tui, particularly between Pontevedra and Caldas de Reis, I kept seeing the word Furancho on homemade signs and wondered what it could be. Finally I stopped at a residence/cafe on the side of the road a few kilometers before arriving in Caldas de Reis. That’s where I met the owner don Carlos. He explained to me that furancho was homemade wine from the previous year’s harvest. He had red (mencia) Albariño (white) and a generic vino blanco. He makes about 500 liters a year and sells it to his neighbors and inquiring peregrinos like myself. His wife had made several large empanadas of different fillings. I passed on the empanadas but I bought two small bottles from Don Carlos and continued my walk into Caldas. If you happen to stop at O Furancho de Barosa just before the Via Romana XIX Marker at km 48,148 please say hello to don Carlos!!

According to my notes don Carlos is on your left, directly on the Camino, just before the road that branches to Parque Natural de Río Barossa (ie just before where the Camino briefly merges with N-550). Here's his number if you're passing through and want to see if he's open: +34 610 909 970. I have his coordinates in my database but don't have access to it at the moment. Can post it later if anyone is interested.

once you get to Redondela, the CP is actually quite nice (and interesting), at lest in my opinion.

You would most likely have o go to Santiago and then backtrack on the CF. there might also be a way to get to Ourense and then to Monforte and then to Sarria...
