Camino de Santiago Portuguese Coastal Route, Day 3

<- Day 2


Walk: Pontevedra to Caldas de Reis

Distance: 22km

Today was day 3 of our 100-kilometer journey along the Camino de Santiago Portuguese Coastal Route, and what a day it was! We set out from Pontevedra early in the morning eager to see what the day would bring.

The Camino took us through a beautiful landscape of chestnut groves and pine and eucalyptus woods, walking through the woods was my favorite part of the day. It drizzled today here and there but it was nothing significant. As we walked, we passed through the charming village of Ponte Cabras, where we took a moment to admire the stunning rectory of Santa Maria de Alba.

Along the way, we came upon the hamlet of Tivo, with its lovely fountain and public washing area, before finally arriving in the spa town of Caldas de Reis.

Our hotel for the night was the Hotel Balneario Acuna Caldas de Reis, and it was the perfect place to rest and recharge after a long day of walking. The hotel boasted a thermal water spa, and we took the opportunity to relax in the hot natural springs and soak our tired muscles.

As we reflect on the day, we are grateful for the beautiful sights and experiences we had along the way. We are also looking forward to what tomorrow will bring, as we continue our journey along the Camino de Santiago Portuguese Coastal Route.

Stay tuned for more updates from our journey!
