A short transfer will take you back to O Porrino, to continue your walk. Whilst leaving O Porrino does feel quite industrial, you are soon heading into the countryside again and paths through pine and eucalyptus trees. A short, steep climb up the Road of the Knights is rewarded with views of the sea, before heading downhill to Redondela. Continue along the coast, then a brief climb up through wooded forest, before reaching the coast again at Arcade.

Arcade is a wonderful little place to explore with the beautiful medieval bridge of Pontesampaio and the charming promenade being real highlights.
