Camino Portugués: Stage 1: Lisbon to Santarém

  • Experiencing a sense of timelessness and freedom amongst the ever changing landscape
  • Basking in the beautiful historic buildings of Lisbon
  • Seeing 'the real Portugal' as you travel at your own pace
  • Meeting your fellow Pilgrims and sharing your stories
  • Taking in the Gothic beauty of Santarém
This first stage of the Camino Portugués is relatively flat and easy going apart from the short climb up to Santarém at the very end of the section. Starting off in the vibrant city of Lisbon you walk north and eventually escape the urban sprawl to arrive in the ‘Garden of Portugal.’ For much of the trip you will be walking by the tranquil Tejo river until you arrive in the gothic city of Santarém. The starting point in Lisbon goes through Old Lisbon and winds along the Tejo River at the Parque das Nacoes, an old expo area that now serves as a major park destination for all of Lisbon. Throughout this stage you will walk through flat agricultural land, here you will observe the Portuguese farming lifestyle. You will pass through vineyards, crop fields and farms. This trail gives one an insight into the suburban Portuguese way of living. The Camino Portugués in general is quite flat and easy to navigate and with the route being a road less travelled, you will find it a lot quieter than the Camino Frances, but no less inspiring.
