Vigo, from the diminutive Roman word for small village, is no longer deserving of the name. It is now the largest city in Galicia which is a remarkable feat given that it didn't start to see any real growth until the end of the 19th century. When it did begin to grow, it did so with reckless abandon and is now something of a disorganized city.

The Road: 

Departing Vigo is a simple affair, and it provides much better scenery than the way into the city. Follow the pedestrian Ruá de Urzáiz to the Rúa de Toledo (which is one street before it ends), and turn left. You will cross the Rúa de Jenaro de la Fuente and continue...

Very good accommodation. Small room, good shower and toilet. Very close to Camino. Very friendly and helpful.

There is a bar about half way along the path to Redonela which serves coffee, food etc. About level with the big bridge
