Pilgrimage Routes to Santiago


Valença is one of the great references of the Santiago Way (Saint James). By the route of the old Roman road, the stone crosses, the shrines, the Veiga da Mira roman/medieval bridge, lead the Way to the Fortress, continuing to Tui. The city lives the mystique of the Paths and contributes its elements, such as the fortress, history, legends, monuments and marks that the pilgrims have been leaving over time, enriching this route that invites to experience a unique life. Faith and experiencing new experiences move pilgrims from all over the world who find in Valença a point of support and reference in the Hostel of São Teotónio, a space of welcome that takes the name of the first Portuguese saint. Valença is a secular landmark on the route to Santiago.
