Camino Portugués: Stage 4 & 5: Porto to Santiago

  • Experience a route rich in cultural and archaeological heritage
  • Walking into Spain across the International bridge across the Minho
  • Walking along quiet, unspoilt coastline
  • Sipping ruby port in the UNESCO heritage city of Porto
  • Completing a unique and rewarding journey and gaining your Compostela in Santiago
Walking from Porto to Santiago de Compostela is considered by many to be the highlight of the whole route. Beginning in the World Heritage site of Porto you walk to the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, where pilgrims from all around the world congregate. This section is varied as after leaving the urban sprawl of Porto and its outskirts, you will walk through a mixture of coastal, forest and open countryside trails. You will pass vineyards, crop fields and farms along the way. You will also pass alongside some of Portugal’s best historic sites, which are well worth the visit. The Camino Portugués, in general, is quite flat and easy to navigate and is a great alternative to the Camino Frances for pilgrims looking for their next achievement!
