The Portuguese Camino is one of many pilgrimage routes that cross through Europe to converge in Santiago de Compostela, the presumed burial site of the Apostle St. James. This path traditionally begins in Lisbon, Portugal continuing north into Spain with a distance of approximately 610km. However we chose to begin the Portuguese Way in Porto, Portugal. From here we can take one of two routes. The first path leads along the inland known as the “Central Way”. The other runs along Portugal’s coast and is known as the “Caminho da Costa”. Both are a distance of approximately 227 km.
