Route

Here's a bit of my route planning for the Portuguese Camino. I contemplated taking the coastal route from Porto but changed my mind last minute because of heavy rain. From Porto I took a bus to Valença and started my walk there. 

I designed this route based on some excellent advice I got from one of the members of Camino de Santiago Forum


"As an advice leave Porto on the detour to Matosinhos and Walk to Vila do Conde. There you can decide whether you will follow the coast to Esposende and Viana do Castelo or you head inland on the central route to São Pedro de Rates and Barcelos. Do you want to continue on the coastal, in Caminha you can decide to take the ferry to A Guarda and walk on to Vigo or head to Valença do Minho /Tui on the central route. In Pontevedra as described you can stay on the central route to Caldas de Reis and Padrón or choose for the ruta de Salnés as we will do".
