Camino Portugues: Redondela - Santiago


After getting to Redondela, the terrain provides slightly more incline than during the previous section. But, you will never climb higher than about 200m. After Ponteveda, you will find some stretches through the beautiful and green Galician woodland. Here the terrain rises and falls while you continue towards Santiago. It's an amazing section of the trip, where you will often pass by Galician vineyards.
