In recent years, it is the road that has seen the highest percentage increase in its number of pilgrims. The proximity to the coast and many large towns where to spend the night have facilitated its growth. From Tui, a city on the border with the neighboring country, the different groups will leave and walk north towards Compostela passing through Porriño and Redondela. The city of Pontevedra with all its attractions and its thousand-year-old basilica dedicated to Santa María becomes a place of obligatory stop. Caldas de Reis and Padrón will be the last stops. This last emblematic place, since the tradition tells that the ship that brought the remains of the apostle Santiago docked here.
