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.

Some beautiful peaceful meandering woodland paths contrasted by a few road/industrial sections..... Amazing cafe/restaurant 50 yards off the path a mile or so before Arcade.

I don’t care for this route. I would like to at least stay a night in Redondela and not walked another 5 miles all the way to Arcade
