Camino Frances

To end of camino






The Road

The camino will soon bring you within sight of Portomarín. You will also pass through the town of Vilachá before beginning the rather steep descent into the valley of the río Miño and across the modern bridge to Portomarín.

The camino into town passes over the new bridge. The old bridge spends most of its time submerged beneath the river below but by the end of summer it emerges as the water level drops. Up the stairs and through the small chapel, you are almost into town. It is a bit more uphill still.


Camino de Sant… (not verified)

There is a beautiful little cafe in Vilacha with a lovely flowered terrace/garden hidden away off the road. The kind owner makes fresh smoothies and juices along with heartier food. Worth planning a stop.

There are signs for several km about a vegetarian bar, but it was closed when I walked past. Looked new.

If you feel like you can’t make it anymore to Portomarin, fear not! There is a albergue in Vilacha. It’s new, so everything is shiny and clean!

I lost my pack cover while crossing the long bridge into Portomarin on a windy day. The wind RIPS up the river! Be sure to buckle everything down . There is a store in Portomarin that sells pack covers!!
