Make the Camino de Santiago in a different way ... Sailing aboard a sailboat!

This itinerary of 6 days and 5 nights, with the option of extending it for one more day, gives us the opportunity to navigate the Atlantic coast of Galicia. We will enjoy the experience of navigating the calm waters of the Vigo, Pontevedra and Arousa estuaries.

On the route from Baiona to Ponteceseures, we will get to know the Rías Baixas and, particularly, exceptional places such as the Atlantic Islands National Park, small fishing villages, historic towns, large cities such as Vigo ... We will pass through the different ports to seal the Camino credential, which will give us the opportunity to obtain the Compostelana at the end of our journey.

On board the ship we can discover the phases of the birth of the Xacobea Route. Everything is born from the transfer of the body of the Apostle Santiago in him from Jerusalem. According to accounts, after the death of Saint James the Greater (one of Jesus' favorite apostles, later beheaded by order of Herod Agrippa), his disciples collected the saint's remains and transferred them in a rudderless boat, guided by God. from Palestine to the Galician coast, where he was buried. On his tomb a mausoleum was built according to the pattern established by the Roman necropolis: a small construction surrounded by columns. His remains are still in the basement of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela
