Camino Portugués

Walk the full Camino Portugués from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela or just specific stages and enjoy a less travelled side of Portugal, but one which is no less inspiring and rich in cultural and architectural heritage. From the smells of cooking from the Churrascaria, the swell of emotion from your first sight of Santiago de Compostela, and the warmth and friendliness of the local people, you can be sure that this Camino will make a lasting impression.
