Camiño de Santiago across Gerês (Hiking) -Stage 1

Braga - Portela de Santa Cruz


Rates

Person: 180€


Duration

11 hours


About

Braga’s Cathedral is our majestic starting point. Learn how Braga and Santiago de Compostela cities’ History cross, especially about their rivalry, and let its beautiful façade bid you farewell as it leads you off to an auspicious hiking day.

From the Roman and Suebian capital you will explore a progressively greener landscape as you head northeast towards the Portela de Santa Cruz and have the opportunity to discover monuments like a chapel from the VII century or a Benedictine monastery from XII century.

We can’t say for sure this first stage does follows the path of the roman road XVIII that names this Camiño due to the uncertainty of its location. It will, however, take us to the beautiful town of Caldelas, with its SPA and springs used since the roman times due to of its therapeutically properties.
