Caldas de Rei is best known for its hot springs (caldas). They still exist, but the tradition of putting your feet into the fountain is discouraged for obvious hygienic reasons. All the same really, a hot soak after a hot day of walking isn’t the best of plans. To see the springs (and to follow the camino), turn left after crossing the first bridge in town.

The camino passes through the old quarter before arriving at another bridge, on the opposite end of which is the municipal albergue and the way out of town.

The church in town is dedicated to Saint Thomas Becket, one of very few of the sort in Spain and possibly the only one in Galicia. If you are only passing through town in the afternoon, the palm trees that surround the church make for a cooling place to relax.

The Road: 

Auf dem Weg aus der Stadt geht es wieder entlang der N550 (was offen gesagt häufig zwischen hier und Santiago der Fall sein wird). Biegen Sie an der ersten Kurve rechts ab.

As you walk into Caldas drop down to the tapas bar on the right . Unbelievable food and cheap too. A place to lose an afternoon
