Getting into town and out again is straightforward. There is an alternative route that is signed, which takes you through town closer to the river.

As a city, Redondela has its charms. It sits well inland of the Vigo estuary and is bisected by two massive train bridges.

The Road: 

When leaving town, the camino crosses the N550 at a bottleneck on the north side of town that is heavy with traffic at all hours. Cross the N550 as soon as you get to it, and almost immediately veer left gently onto a side road.

The arrows from here leave a bit to be desired. They are...

You are climbing uphill now and will traverse around the O Viso peak. Along the way you pass an installation of...

The hotels here are located along the main road, which is both noisy and a bit dangerous. Suitable as a last resort but otherwise best avoided.

The Road: 

After crossing the bridge, take a left turn on the first street. This turn is followed by a series of zigs and zags that take you up and through town at the highest point.

The camino takes a welcome break from the road traffic between here and O Pobo.

The Road: 

Exercise caution passing through San Caetano as the road is quite narrow and the traffic is quite fierce. At the end of town turn right off the road. Soon you will be along the railway once more which you will follow along for several kilometers.

San Amaro sits square above the railway that you walked along a few kilometers ago; they tunnel through this hillside on their way to Santiago.

There are two bars in town; the first has the most character and the most business. Friendly service too.

The Road: 

Turn left at the fork in the road, past the park, and onto a country lane.

The turn off for the Portela/Barro albergue is along this stretch, and it takes you uphill to the right.

Located along a deviation of the camino, well signed. It adds a few meters to the journey but has a municipal albergue in a quiet town.

The Road: 

Before arriving at Briallos, the camino approaches the N550 once more. At this point, there are signs for the Natural Park of the Rio Barosa, and the waterfalls. The waterfalls are 500m down the road directly opposite this point and are a worthwhile detour. Picnic areas and a bar...
