Walk alongside the Ria de Vigo which is protected by the beautiful Cies Islands archipelago, home to some of the most beautiful beaches.  If you want to visit the Cies Islands add an extra night in Baiona from where you can take one of the regular boat services to the islands (only available in summer). This does need to be booked in advance however as visitor numbers to the islands are limited to protect the fragile environment. Pass the historic fountain of O Pombal, before crossing two Romanesque Bridges and continuing into the marshland area of Foz del Rio Minor.  Visit the Votivo do Mar Temple in Nigran before reaching the city of Vigo.

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
