Praia de Ancora to Oia Monastery
Walking Day 21: 28 km, 6 hrs
Today’s journey was 28.28 km overall, 26.3 walking and 2 km on the ferry.
After arriving on the Spanish side of the Minho, we took the “long way” along the coast to A Guarda rather than the route up and over the hills that I took the preceding September. We walked the first few kilometers on the Spanish side with Jay, a college professor from San Antonio.
In A Guarda, we saw a book fair in the town square, complete with live entertainment and dancing. The narrow oceanside trails out of A Guarda to the Oia Monastery were beautiful. There are additional details of the monastery here, and additional photos here.
We ate dinner at the Casa Cultural de Oia, with a great ocean view.
