Description

The Portuguese Way or Caminho Portugués is a fantastic route for pilgrims looking for a more rural experience on the Camino de Santiago. The Portuguese Way is a month-long journey if you decide to walk, a fortnight if you cycle it. We recommend cycling the first sections from Lisbon to Porto. The route starts in Lisbon, Portugal’s dazzling capital and home of several UNESCO sites, and takes pilgrims along stunning countryside, villages and towns such as Santarém, one of the last Moorish bastions in Portugal; Coimbra, famous for its UNESCO 13th century university; and gorgeous Porto with its colourful river front and home of Port wine. On the Portuguese Way route of the Camino de Santiago you will walk past terraced fields, lush forests vineyards and peaceful sleepy villages. Once you will cross the border between Portugal and Spain you will start the last 100km from Tui, Galicia. Explore Tui’s beautiful old town, visit the hilltop cathedral and, if you have time before heading to Santiago de Compostela, walk across the 19th century International Bridge to Valença do Minho, its Portuguese ‘twin’ town. http://caminoways.com/ways/portuguese-way-camino-portugues/portuguese-way-full-way
