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.

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

Really nice coastal walk but 29.6 km not 24! My thighs know they’re alive after this on day 1... hoping not too sore for day 2, so forced legs into the icy sea.

Nice tour, the route marking was okay. We split the distance and did it in two days.
