This week-long adventure begins in Tui. At O Grove we will go on board a catamaran to travel the sea-river route along the Ría of Arousa and river Ulla, paying homage to the arrival in Galicia of the Apostle Saint James’ body. From Padrón, we will continue the Way to Santiago
We propose discovering the suggestive path of the Portuguese Way from Tui to Santiago. in a week. During the journey will we recreate the legend of the “Translatio Sancti Jacobi” (the transfer of the remains of the Apostle) on an attractive sea-river journeythat includes the largest estuary in Galicia and goes up the river Ulla. We will come across towns bathed by sweet and salt waters that house a cathedral-fortress, medieval bridges and even a set of raised stone granaries standing by the sea shore.
We recommend arriving in Tui, early in the afternoon, through the AP-9, A-55, the N-550 or PO-552. It is a beautiful villa enriched by the river landscape of the Miño, that serves as the natural frontier with Portugal.
We begin the visit by going up to the promontory which is the villa of Tui. We will feel as if time had stopped in the Middle Ages as we go up the streets Rúa Canicoba, Entrefornos, do Corpo Santo or when we pass through the tunnel de Encerradas. This is a vaulted passageway that runs below the convent of the Claire Nuns and that connects the high part of the villa with the area inside the walls. The hands of the nuns that inhabit the convent knead the dough for the “pececitos” (little fish), delicious almond pastries. Their recipe is a secret that is well-kept within the walls of the convent, but this does not stop us from tasting them, for they can be purchased at the convent or in pastry shops.
