Description

We leave Santiago de Compostela at 9:30 The first stop is Padrón, a town closely related to the Camino de Santiago (Portuguese Way) and with the history of the arrival of the Apostle to Galicia. We visit the church of Santiago (where the 'Pedrón' is located), the Alameda and there is time for a coffee. Then you reach the island by crossing one of the longest bridges over the sea in Europe. Once there you can choose between taking a walk through the natural park with the guide, having a drink sitting by the sea or taking a dip in one of the fantastic beaches on the island! After an hour and a half on the island, the next stop will be Cambados. Once there, you cross the town's main square, Fefiñans, with its impressive 'Pazo' and the interesting church of San Bieito. In this town you will have free time to taste local products in one of the many restaurants and also to try the famous wine of the area, the Albariño. Before entering the Ría de Pontevedra, the route visit the island of A Toxa. This island was the first vacation resort in Europe back in the late nineteenth century, it is also known for the soaps that were made here with the mineral salts of the water springs. You will see the historic 'Gran Hotel LaToja', the old soap factory and the curious 'Capilla de las Conchas' (completely covered with scallop shells). Already in the next estuary, the inlet of Pontevedra, the route reaches the town of Combarro. This is a wonderful example of popular architecture. We will walk through its granite alleys between granaries and stone crosses. There is an option to try mussels and local wine on the ship that sails from Combarro. The Marina of Combarro is the place where this activity starts. You'll seeing the mussel farms, the towns of Combarro and Marín from the sea and the island of Tambo. The return is around 7:30 p.m.
