The Portuguese Road, or Camino Portugues, is considered by many as the most spiritually connected pilgrimage route. Following the path St James’ body took to its resting place at the site of Santiago de Compostela in Spain, the often overlooked, and hence much quieter, Portuguese path offers a wealth of history and delightful landscapes to discover. Choose to walk it in its entirety or just one stage.
