A Guarda, Portuguese Coastal Way


The Portuguese Coastal route of the Way of Saint James starts its steps in Galicia after crossing the Miño river. The journey is by ferry between Caminha (Portugal) and A Guarda (Galicia).

From the ferry pier continues via the streets and paths of the parish of Camposancos to A Guarda centre town. After going through the town old centre, the Way proceeds to the coast via Fedorento & Area Grande Beaches. Then, leaving the shore behind stays skirting the coastline by the Cetareas Route until to get to O Rosal boundary. All of this makes a 9 kilometres low difficulty walk.

A Guarda has a Pilgrim’s Hostel (Albergue) in the downtown and just a few metres from the Camino de Santiago. Pilgrim´s Hostel closed from 19/12/2022 to 15/01/2023
