First of all, remember that you can now download the CIES APP on IOS and ANDROID, you have all the stages there, in addition to other very interesting information.
We begin our second stage leaving Oia behind us, we will pass near Cabo Silleiro, you will be able to appreciate the cannons that defended the coasts from possible invaders, such as the pirate Francis Drake, who in 1585 arrived in our waters.
Before arriving at Baiona, we will go up the old royal path to reach Baredo, we will shorten the journey for about 2 kilometers if we choose the coast, there are steep roads but the ascent is not too hard. My option is to go down to the Virgen de la Roca, the work of Antonio Palacios, made of granite and marble, to reach the gates of the Monte Real Castle-Parador Nacional de Turismo, we can do the path that surrounds it if we do not arrive very tired It is worth it, we can also visit the replica of the La Pinta caravel, the food market and many other popular architectural works.
On March 1, 1493, Baiona was the first port in Europe to receive the news of the discovery of America, as the Caravel La Pinta arrived, led by Martín Alonso Pinzón.
Baiona is also the southern start of the Vigo estuary, protected by the Cíes Islands, which are the heart of the Atlantic Islands National Park, which can be visited depending on the season from the port of Baiona.
The stage has a distance of 17.8 km, remaining 143.35 km to Santiago.
