What a wonder and what a joy this last route.
I have to indicate that this “River Route” does not count as the Camino de Santiago, but with the kilometers we carry in our backpack, we will not mind enjoying this wonderful route, the alternative would be to leave from #Vilanova walking to #Pontecesures (28 km ) and then continue.
We will make the journey in a private boat, at a cost of approximately 19 euros the journey, lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes where they will explain the operation of the rafts and the details to take into account of the crossing, its Via Crucis, the island from Cortegada, which is part of the National Park of the Atlantic Islands, we can also taste the famous clams of #Carril, for example.
We will cross the Ría de Arousa and ascend the Ulla River, recalling the journey that Teodoro and Atanasio made from Palestine in AD 44 with the remains of Santiago Apóstol.
We will arrive in Pontecesures to continue the Portuguese Way to Santiago, about 24 km of travel to finish our #Camino and get the #Compostela, remember that now you have to get a ticket before 14:00 P.M. to seal the end of the Camino and to have your Credential sealed.
How good I felt arriving in Santiago, the end of the stage.
