After breakfast, take a short metro journey to the town of Matosinhos, escaping some of the urban sprawl of Porto. From Matosinhos, start your walk along the coast visiting seaside villages such as Leca da Palmeira, Labruge and Vila do Conde before arriving at Povoa do Varzim. This beautiful city is home to the Cividade de Terrosso Fort, more than 3000 years old as well as an ancient aquaduct, and a charming old town.

They are right the walk is not 25 to 30 km but rather longer. Made it to Villa de Conde by 6 pm with 7 km to go. Take a taxi .... no point in killing oneself! I am older and walk at 3 km/hr so a 33 km walk is not in my wheelhouse. BYW this is my 9th long ditance walk!!!

Not difficult terrain but about 33 km rather than 26, so a bit footsore by the end.
