    Hello, Just wondering if you can start in O Porrino can you receive a Compostela? Thanks

    Hey Barbara, O Porriño is 100 kilometers away from Santiago, so you should qualify for the Compostela. However, most folks walking this section of the CP begin in Tui where the total walking distance to Santiago is 117 km. The walk (about 16 km) between Tui and O Porriño is quite pleasant particular if you take the path near O Porriño that avoids having to walk several kilometers on a very busy highway. Tui is also a wonderful, picturesque medieval town well worth visiting. Having walked through there, Tui seems like a more natural starting point for your Camino than the next town down The Way. My blog below this post will give you some idea as to our experiences walking this section of the CP. Bom Caminho!

    ...or walk from Portugal! Valenca is also a stunning little town just across the river from Tui. Walk through the gates of the city's ancient walls, cross the international bridge, walk about 2km along the pretty riverside, then climb a bunch of stairs into beautiful Tui.
