Day by day itinerary

DAY 1: 
PONTE DE LIMA - RUBIAES (18km / 11.2 miles)

NOTE: If you need a Transfer to Ponte de Lima from Santiago, Vigo, Porto, or any other city please let us know to quote the extra cost. 

  • Meet your guide in the beautiful medieval town of Ponte de Lima.
  • Leave the historic town by crossing the Romanesque-Gothic bridge over the River Lima. After reaching the other side of the bridge, a right turn will plunge you into the rural world of the farming parish of Arcozelo.
  • After Labruja, agriculture becomes scarce and is replaced by forests as you climb to Portela Pequena. These 2 uphill kilometers from Labruja are the most demanding of the whole Way but the views from the top are a reward indeed.
  • Halfway up we find the Cruz dos Franceses and then climb to the forestry commission house at the summit.  Views like these deserve to be appreciated and you will certainly have earned a rest.
  • A picnic lunch of tasty local produce will be waiting for you to replenish your energy.
  • From the top of the hill, it is an easy journey downhill through woodland, passing an old watermill before arriving in Rubiães.
  • End the walk at the magnificent Romanesque church surrounded by curious gravestones and Roman engravings.
  • Now all that remains is for us to take you back to Ponte de Lima by car.
  • NOTE: If you need a Transfer to Santiago, Vigo, Porto, or any other city please let us know to quote the extra cost.
