Day 8 - Tui to Redondela

Belvedere overlooking the Rio Minho

The doorway of the enclosed covent of the Clarissas Encerradas

Leaving Tui

Waymark on house waall

First view of the motorway

Marker board outside the Chapel of Our Lady of the Way

More motorway views (but at least it keeps the old roads empty for pilgrims)


Shaded tracks

The cross of San Telmo, marking the spot where the Saint died returning from Santiago. Beyond is the Bridge of Fevers!

A Madelena - the 5 crosses - and it is starting to rain.

At this point, one arrives at the large village square in Orbenlle, with 2 good cafes. Beyond thism is a 10 km. trudge through the indiustiral suburbs of Porrino. An alternative is to spend a few euros on a taxi!
