Leaving Oia behind, walk at the foot of impressive cliffs until reaching the Lighthouse of Cabo Silleiro, the main point of navigation for ships sailing along the Ria de Vigo. Ascend to Baredo and a few kilometres later arrive at the 12th century Castle of Monte Real, now the luxurious Parador de Baiona hotel - speak to us about upgrading your overnight stay to here! Continue to Baiona, the first port in Europe to receive the news of the discovery of America.

In the evening take a wander through the narrow streets of the old town and enjoy an evening meal in one of the atmospheric restaurants — perhaps the delicious Pulpo (octopus) or Merluza a la Gallega (hake).

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.

Another wonderful and easy day...Walk anong the ocean and then near Baiona a steap but nice climb up to cut over. When you leave the forest area you'll walk down on roads following the way. About a km or two you'll see a stream and boardwalk. If you like take the boardwalk down to the sea and then walk the last 3 km into town along the ocean. It was a highlight. Why go over another hill?
