The first Spanish city to know the discovery of America
The Gil Eannes and other charms of Viana do Castelo
From the Lima river to the cold and Atlantic waters of Baiona. There we will celebrate the penultimate stop of the Ruta do Cabaleiro, in order to discover all the history that surrounds it.
The reasons that make the coastal city a destination to visit are many and varied, but there is one of them that made us choose it as a mandatory stop.
And it is not the wonderful views that we can enjoy from its cliffs, but the historical fact that left it marked for life: the arrival of the caravel Pinta to its waters.
Vila Nova de Gaia: A destination starring by its bridges
The fourth stop of our journey takes us to the mouth of the river Lima, ready to dock in the huge port of Viana do Castelo and discover its charms of those who talk so much.
The sea always brings with it the stories and legends that we like the most, and maybe that is the reason why we like this city so much.
The Ruta do Cabaleiro will be filled with color in Aveiro
Separated from Porto by the most important river of the Portuguese northwest, and united by the six historical bridges that communicate them; Vila Nova de Gaia has become a city of enormous tourist attraction for the neighboring country.
The pier, its colorful boats, the Calem cellars, its cobbled streets ... The third stop of the Traditional Route will transport our pilgrims to the heart of the Portuguese north to make them live together endless moments together.
Póvoa de Varzim, the city of blue tiles
Known as the Portuguese Venice, the city of Aveiro has a special charm that makes it a must stop in the journey that will take our pilgrims sailors to Compostela. And if that were not enough, he will receive them in the best of ways: with an exquisite pork on the spit.
Póvoa de Varzim is a city that lends itself to roam and know its secrets and more historical secrets. It lends itself to enjoy the beauty of architectural elements such as the Clock Tower, the Church of San Pedro, or its beautiful fortress that years ago served as a refuge for its inhabitants. It lends itself to enjoy.
It is clear that our seafaring pilgrims will not have time to get bored in this first stop, and that the Ruta do Cabaleiro will be full of surprises this year.
