Camino Portugues

→ 3.50 → Cesantes → 3.90km → Arcade

To end of camino
The Road

Getting past Cesantes means crossing the N550 once more, at probably the most dangerous point in a curve in the road. Head straight across and keep to your right.

You are climbing uphill now and will traverse around the O Viso peak. Along the way you pass an installation of pilgrim shells and if you have a marker on hand you can leave a message on a sun-bleached shell. From here it is downhill again to the N550.

At the entrance to Arcade, the camino turns left rather unnecessarily. It will cross back over the N550 in a few hundred meters, taking you past the albergues and shops of Arcade.


Camino de Sant… (not verified)

Stayed overnight on half board dinner and breakfast included, good 3 course pilgrims meal and breakfast included. Checked in at cafe then was escorted 150m to Pension Rural rooms.


Wonderful place to stay. House is situated 10 minutes off the Camino, before reaching the track leading to Pension Jumboli.
Spotless accommodation, big single room (doubles available), huge garden with classic view of the Vigo bridge, breakfast supplied, very friendly owner. In 12 years on Caminos, this is the best ever.


O Refugio was really a lovely place, super friendly and helpful intern and owner. German and English speakers. Nice garden, lots of space for laundry. Dinner is available for purchase.


Meal at Jumboli is really big! I (girl) couldn’t finish both dishes. Delicious homemade food. EUR 9,5 with the beer.


A Dársena do Francés is a beautiful new place right on the Camino in Cesantes. Lovely garden, breakfast included in €20 fee, washer/dryer available, nearby grocery/restaurants
