From Aguiño and Ribeira to Rianxo on the north shore, and from O Grove to Carril on the south bank, sailing boats and rowing boats, and today motor boats too, work the estuary to supply us with the very best seafood and fish. From the island of Cortegada onwards, there are a series of cruceiros placed on islets or on the shores of the Ulla estuary, marking the Way, passing the mythical Torres de Oeste in Catoira and the unspoilt area of the Brañas de Laíño, until reaching Padrón and from here, going on to Compostela.
Padrón is a modern town, which according to the legend, is the spot where the boat containing the remains of the Apostle Saint James from Jerusalem moored. The boat was tied to a stone, “O Pedrón”, in reality a Roman altar which can be seen below the altar of the church of Santiago. Padrón, with the name of Iria Flavia, was one of the great Roman metropolises of Galicia. There are also reminders of Saint James at the Fuente de Santiago and in Santiaguiño do Monte, where a hermitage and some megalithic remains remind us of the first preaching of the Apostle.
This sea route was also followed by the Portuguese, who were overjoyed to be following the exact route taken by the disciples who brought the relics of Saint James
