Camino Portugués

Camino Portugués, Lisboa - Santiago de Compostela, 632 km, 25 days

There is a trail between Lisboa and Santiago de Compostela, and it is marked. The downside is that it closely follows the road, even if you do not walk on the roads themselves. So, from the point of view of a good hike, there may be better Ways of St. James.

Visit Traildino's overview page for the Way of Saint James / Camino de Santiago.

  • Portuguese way
  • There is an alternative Portuguese route that follows near the shore where you don't have to walk close to the roads and it's an excellent hike. Together with the French, the Portuguese way is one of the most beautiful.
