Costa Verde Highlights
Minho Portugal

Get a unique insight into the history, gastronomy and landscapes of this little-known but richly rewarding corner of Portugal.

We have designed this self-guided walking tour to help you explore the highlights (both coastal and inland) of the Minho region. Few visitors get to fully appreciate the beautiful green landscape sand deeply ingbrrained and fascinating culture of the Costa Verde.

This walking tour begins in the charming riverside town of Ponte de Lima and ends in the fascinating coastal city of Viana do Castelo. Be sure to arrive in time to roam its medieval centre and make the journey to the hilltop basilica and Celtic settlement of Santa Luzia.

Crossing the old Roman bridge of Ponte de Lima, you will follow in the footsteps of thousands of pilgrims in the direction of the holy city of Santiago de Compostela as you walk part of the ancient Way of Saint James. As well as glorious countryside, you’ll see plenty of shrines, chapels, ancient bridges and carved stone crosses.

Once you reach the northern border of Portugal at the fortress town of Valença do Minho, it’s time to head west. Follow the River Minho towards the coast, passing riverside towns such as Vila Nova de Cerveira to reach delightful Caminha.

Enjoy the outstanding natural beauty of white sandy beaches and the colourful activity of small fishing towns as you make your way south along the Green Coast to Viana do Castelo. Of course, you’ll have ample opportunity to taste crisp local wines and the freshest grilled fish and seafood throughout your journey.
