Camino Portugués Coastal Way

An interesting and quieter variation of the main Camino Portugues central route, the Portugues Coastal Way or Caminho da Costa runs from Porto to Santiago following the wild Atlantic coastline of northern Portugal and Galicia.

Starting in the vibrant UNESCO heritage city of Porto, head straight to the coast and walk through seaside towns and fishing villages, past river estuaries and sandy beaches. Visit one of the most beautiful and best preserved historical centres of Portugal in Viana do Castelo before reaching the natural border of Spain and Portugal and the River Miño.

Continue through historic medieval towns such as Baiona, Pontevedra and Padro. Cross beautiful Romanesque bridges and dine on some of Galicia’s gastronomic delights. Finally meet up with the main Camino Portugues rout
