Throwback Camino – Camino Portuguese from A Guarda – Day Four

Vigo – Redondela

I was happy to be leaving Vigo. Our Camino was not over and we had many kms to go. Leaving the town, we faced a steep climb but the walk to Redondela was a short one. The forecast for the day was good also, so we were were all set.

We left Hostal Real before 8 am after some breakfast and made, we for the coast. We were sticking to the Senda Littoral but not for long. Today would be the day we would join the main Camino Portuguese. I was looking forward to it.

After our climb, we pause to look back with some satisfaction. There is the port of Vigo behind us – ahead of us is Redondela. As we continue we climb a particularly steep hill. I keep my eyes peeled for other pilgrims – this is the main Portuguese Way, isn’t it??

We follow the Camino into the forest where we meet pilgrims from Ireland, from the USA, from Portugal, and from Italy. After 16 kilometres we arrived at the plaza in Redondela and see many pilgrims sitting out in the sun. It is just before midday. It has been an enjoyable day and I look forward to walking into Pontevedra tomorrow.
