O Porriño is the heart of Galicia’s industrialized sector and has been so for centuries, the area is rich with granite.

History: 

O Porriño’s most beloved son is the famed architect Antonio Palacios. He was fond of using the local granite as a building material, the best example of which is the Palacio Municipal in the town center. The family name Palacios appears on several buildings and monuments around town.

The Road: 

The camino leaves town along the N550. On the north end of town, you will cross a roundabout, keeping to your right. Soon the road passes under the highway, and the trail leaves the road immediately after. After going under the highway, look to your right for a tunnel that passes under the off-ramp. It will take you to Ameirolongo

If you do stop in Porriño, pension cando is a very clean and central place. It’s basically a large apartment with a number of rooms that are rented out. It has a small shared kitchen with kettle, microwave , fridge, and a laundry area to rinse/wash clothes. The bedroom was roomy, clean and tidy. All fine for 2 pelegrinos.

Agree with the other prilgrim - not worth a stop. the town is boring and not with anything interesting to do. Would not stay here again. With that said, I stayed at Senda Sur and had a very fine and relaxing experience there.

I would not recommend to stay in this town. It is loud and not really welcoming. Not much places to chill.
