After browsing around Redondela, we set out towards Pontevedra to admire the beauty of the Ria de Vigo and the bridge of Rande. The Portuguese Camino enters the municipality of Soutomaior by Arcade, famous for its oysters and we soon arrive at Ponte Sampaio and Verdugo River; place of a historic defeat of Napoleon´s army in the War of Independence. Among paved roads and some wooded stretch, we arrive at Pontevedra through Virxe do Camiño.
