JD Camino Portugués_1543.jpg
Beginning either in Porto or Lisbon, the Caminho Português, or Portuguese Way of St. James is a twelfth-century pilgrimage route, passing through some of the most beautiful countryside in Portugal and western Spain. Hiked in the wet and green conditions of early spring 2018, and begun on Easter Sunday in Porto, the 240-km Camino Central encompasses fields, forests and farm tracks, tiny villages and medieval cities, crossing the Ave, Neiva, Lima, and Coura rivers, into the Spanish province of Galicia at Tui/Valenca. Five further days along this route took in the Spanish towns of O Porriño, Redondela, Pontevedra, Caldas de Reis, and Padron, before culminating in the city of Santiago de Compostela, the destination since the Middle Ages for thousands of faithful travelers.
