To get to A Guarda by road, we have several options. You can arrive from Baiona skirting the sea coastline or from inland, travelling from Tui, or even coming from the south, from Portugal.
GETTING BY ROAD
From inland the Iberian Peninsula, merely take the A-52 signposted to Vigo. Then we have two options to get A Guarda from Vigo:
If you prefer the quickest route, take the A-55 signposted to Tui and leave it at junction 30, continue forward through PO-552 until A Guarda, travelling in parallel with the Miño river. In the locality of Goian (Tomiño), you can stay ahead in PO-552 or take the quickest route, join the CG-4.2 signposted A Guarda.
If you prefer travel skirting the sea coastline, in Vigo, you can take AG-57 (toll) to Baiona and then continue by PO-552 signposted A Guarda.
Travellers coming from Portugal have the possibility of arriving via ferry, crossing the Miño river in Caminha (Portugal) to A Guarda depending on the tide. By road, you need to pass the river by International Bridge that joins Valença do Minho (Portugal) and Tui (Galicia) or the Friendship Bridge that joins Vila Nova de Cerveira (Portugal) and Goian (Galicia), and then take PO-552 or the quickest route taking CG-4.2 signposted A Guarda.
