Padrón might just be the most important little town on this or indeed any other camino. It was here that the remains of Santiago arrived after being sent out to sea on a stone boat, as told in the story of the ‘translatio’. 

His arrival to the specific point is attributed to the fact that it was here that he first arrived to preach while still alive, so his return was a homecoming of sorts.

Padrón is also the birthplace of Rosalia de Castro, Galicia’s most famous and beloved laureate.

Padrón (and Herbón) are home to that delicious green and possibly spicy pepper you may have had the pleasure of eating.

The Road

Take a look at the elevation profile for an idea of what these last 24km will be like, many pilgrims underestimate the elevation changes which increase as you near Santiago.

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

The entry into town is not attractive, very industrial. But if you stick to the Camino path, it is a bit better. Stayed at Camino Portuguese, a relatively new, spotless, place with a restaurant below. Great location on road out of town. Basic but nice and affordable.

Clean and modern . Host is very attentive to keeping the place neat and tidy .
There is an oven but no stove to use , there is a microwave , toaster and kettle .

A great stay just before making it to Santiago . It’s on the yellow path so no need to deviate . Supermarkets were about 200m away . Restaurants across the albergue

Stayed in Pensión Jardín in Padron. This has to be a stop in your Camino. Beautiful Church( with lots of history regarding St James), town and the pension just made the stay in Padron the icing on the cake.

A very, very nice place to stay is “os Lambrans” 2,5 km after Padron. If you want to treat yourself.
