Day 1 (Thurs 20) - Leaving Porto in a rental car at around 9am. We're planning on taking the A28 until Esposende, stopping for a quick visit of the Iron Age hillfort at Castro de São Lourenço. Back on the A28 to Viana do Castelo, where we plan on hugging the coast on the N13 to Caminha. We're going to take the car ferry from Caminha to A Guarda (probably the one at noon or at 1pm). We'll be spending the afternoon and evening on Monte Santa Trega and in A Guarda, staying at the Hotel Convento de San Benito. Any sights or archeological sites worth visiting along the way? A good seafood restaurant in A Guarda?
Day 2 (Fri 21) - Planning to start with the coastal route to Santiago de Compostela (via Vigo) from A Guarda, using the PO-552, then joining the AP-9. Any suggested stops along this route?
Day 3 (Sat 22) - Spending the day in Santiago de Compostela. Hoping to see the botafumeiro in the cathedral at 19:30.
Day 4 (Sun 23) - Morning service in the cathedral. Slow drive to Fisterra (Finisterre) with stops along the camino (like the bridge at Augapesada). 3 of our party may decide to walk a 10kms leg, if the weather permits. Which 10 kms would be a nice hike? The first 10 kms?
Day 5 (Mon 24) - Travel day: Fisterra to Muxia, via Santiago de Compostela, to Braga.
Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions!
