We had a wonderful breakfast at the Hotel ARCE in Baiona and we were sorry thet we had to leave this nice town and especially the hotel. It would have been nice to stay here an extra day.
We met some walkers along the trail who passed us on one of our uphill climbs.
We eventually caught up to a couple of women who had passed us earlier. They had stopped at a crossroads for a rest and they directed us to our path and the they took an alternate route.
When we reached the outskirts of Vigo we could see from the distance that this was a large city with all of the same benefits and issues that are associated with a large city. Vigo is one of the larger cities in Spain with a population of 300,000 in the city and 500,000 with the surrounding areas. As with any large town, there are some abandoned areas, graffiti and industry in the town. I took this picture in one of the alleyways next to a large factory that was along the Camino path going into the town.
