El Camino del Ribeiro Way is part of a long and ancient pilgrimage route that has only recently been resurrected between Braga in northern Portugal and Santiago de Compostela (El Camino de Santiago da Geira Romana e dos Arrieiros). The entire Camino is 239 km; which can be completed in 10 stages although the climb from Braga over the Portuguese mountains is demanding.
It's more realistic and comfortable to start in Ribadavia (or anywhere in the Ribeiro area) which is 109 km from Santiago so pilgrims can get their Compostela.
The Camino extends for 40 km passing through the Ribeiro wine-producing area which has Denomination of Origin status. It's an undulating walk passing terraced vineyards and the river valleys of the Minho and at Ribadavia, the river Avia. The walk leaves the Ribeiro area at the enchanting village of Pazos de Arenteiro renowned for its concentration of historic manor-style houses.
The remaining 90 km to Santiago follows the old route which was used to transport the wine produced in Ribeiro to its principal market in Santiago de Compostela, known as the Arrieiros Camino. The climb to Salón is one of its hardest points before the Camino finally becomes more populated by small towns and villages in impressive rural settings which are generally off the beaten path and away from touristy areas.
