The “Traslatio”: the Camino de Santiago’s spiritual variant

Legend has it that the boat carrying the remains of the Apostle St. James arrived in the Galician town of Padrón after making a long journey from the Holy Land. From that point on, the story of the town and that of the Camino are very closely linked. Even the meaning of the town’s name, Padrón, comes from the word “Pedrón” meaning stone, because St. James’ boat was tied to a stone when it arrived. This town has since been the starting point of the Camino for Pilgrims who arrived by sea.

Follow the path that the disciples of the Apostle St. James took when they transferred his remains to Santiago de Compostela. Walk amidst natural landscapes of great beauty and history.

This path includes the only maritime “Stations of the Cross” in the world as you will be able to see 12 unique and ancient Galician Crosses called “Cruceiros”, which mark each station along the way. This route is known as the “Translatio” or “The origin of all Caminos” is where two Jacobean ways meet: The Portuguese Way and the “Way of the Sea” also known as the route of the Arousa Sea and the Ulla River.

A magical journey where we will also visit the beautiful Arousa estuary and its famous floating shellfish farms where we will learn about the process of farming delicious mussels, oysters and scallops. Last but not least we will visit the lovely town of Padrón and its famous church.
