We will take you to the original Camino route, which gave rise to the phenomenon of the pilgrimage to the Cathedral.

During the itinerary, you will discover impressive surroundings, enjoying nature along the banks of the Ulla River, its singular estuary, and the mouth of the Ría de Arousa, sailing among mussel platforms. The Mar de Santiago excursion also features explanations by our bilingual tourist guide, as well as coach and boat trips around the region.
