Portuguese Coastal Way
Minho Portugal

The historical and spiritual Portuguese Coast Camino de Santiago offers a wide range of scenery, experiences and flavours.

The landscapes you’ll encounter in Portugal and Spain are varied and beautiful, as are the inland stretches where you will wend your way through woodland, farmland, country villages and historical towns through Northern Portugal and Galicia. You’ll witness the cultural contrast between seafaring people, traditional village life and the comparative bustle of the ancient towns and cities along the Camino.

Before you begin your Portuguese Coastal Way to Santiago, pay a visit to the 12th century Porto Cathedral and take time to explore the city. We will transfer you to Matosinhos where you will walk alongside the ocean towards the pretty old town of Vila do Conde, with a lace-making tradition and strong naval history. Viana do Castelo gives you the chance to explore its medieval history and detour to visit Santa Luzia basilica for magnificent views. Then weave your way through Portuguese countryside and back to the Atlantic Portuguese coast near Caminha, just across the river from Spain.

A scenic ferry ride takes you to A Guarda for a beautiful stretch of unspoiled coastline towards the attractive town of Baiona and its tapas bars. Between Vigo and Redondela, you’ll be able to see the Ria de Vigo lagoon, dotted with the Cies islands and floating mussel farms. Meet fellow pilgrims as you merge with the Portuguese Central Way of St James in Redondela. Take time to enjoy Pontevedra’s charming historical center and relax in one of its attractive squares. More forests, fields, rivers, villages and valleys lie between here and the spa town of Caldas de Reis. Explore Padrón, its peppers and its links to St. James before the final journey to Santiago de Compostela.
