Portomarín

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.

I wanted to reserve a private room there yesterday for the end of May. I was only offered a room with dinner for €50 per person!! So the double room should cost 100€/night, a far cry from 47€. Then I decided not to make a reservation.

I had a great night here last night. The owners daughter prepared us a lovely dinner. She served and then joined us for dinner and shared in wonderful conversation. By far this was one of my favorite alberges.

While still steep. It is paved and shorter. The original way is rocky and very steep.

I took the alternative path to portomsrin and it was also steep down then followed road to the bridge so I’m not sure there is much between the options!

About 1-1.5km before Portomarin there is a choice of paths; the standard Camino and the old route. We chose the standard Camino and while it was fine on a sunny day the steep section is seriously steep and difficult, so I wouldn't want to do it during or shortly after rain.

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.
