What is the Traslatio of the Camino de Santiago?

The TRASLATIO is part of a stage in the Spiritual Variant the Portuguese way of Saint James. In our remembrance we started from the fishing town of Vilanova de Arousa. The 28 kilometer route crosses the Arosa Estuary and goes up the Ulla River to Pontecesures, an hour’s journey full of history and beauty. A few minutes after our departure from Vilanova de Arousa we will be able to see the “Bateas”, floating wooden platforms where mussels are grown and we will explain the importance of this mollusk. Shortly after we will find Cortegada, an island that belongs to the National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia, which is home to the largest laurel forest in Europe. Its location at the mouth of the river divides the Ría de Arosa and the Ulla River.

West Towers, in Catoira

The West Towers are the ruins of a castle whose function was to protect Santiago de Compostela from invasion attempts, which is remembered every year with the celebration of the Viking Romany of Catoira.

In the 9th and 10th centuries, the fortress was a bastion, “the key and seal of Galicia”, its objective preventing the passage of ships from the Arousa estuary to the Ulla river.

Nature in its purest form

The Ría de Arousa is one of the richest in the world, with a great diversity of fish, crustaceans and shellfish. Throughout the O Salnés region there is a wide variety of Albariño wines with their own Rías Baixas designation of origin.

You will be able to discover unique corners that will make you rediscover them with more time. Vilanova de Arousa, Cambados, Vilagarcía de Arousa, Sanxenxo, O Grove, A Illa de Arousa and Catoira, with the remains of the Torres do Oeste, built to defend against Viking attacks, will be places that you cannot miss.

Centenary cruises

A wonderful route full of history where we will see the only maritime river Via Crucis formed by 12 cruises (out of a total of 17), which are located at the mouth of the Ría de Arousa and the banks of the Ulla River.

Most were built in 1960 by Alfonso San Martin Abelleira. We highlight the beauty of “El Calvario”, the name given to the three cruise ships located in Punta Patiño, which were built in memory of Santiago Apóstol and his two disciples.
