Leaving Vigo by a pleasant river walk takes you to the Castle of San Sebastian. Descend to the Barrio de O Berbes, an area well known for its wonderful restaurants and where you can sample Ostras de la Ria (oysters of the river).  Continue to  Redondela, where the route meets the main Camino Portuguese way and cross the historic centre of Cesantes before descending to the seaside village of Arcade.
