El Portuguese Way It has the added attraction of walking between Spain and Portugal. The main starting points are the cities Porto and Tui / Valença do Minho. We are facing the second Camino de Santiago with the largest influx of pilgrims, after the French Way.

This route became relevant, as a result of the independence of Portugal in the XNUMXth century, and denotes the international relevance of the Way, as a backbone at the European level. Gaining strength in recent years is the variant of the Portuguese Way along the coast.

The Camino de Santiago Portugues has a great historical tradition, fostered by the support received from the old Portuguese crown, which documents pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela from the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries.

Throughout the stages of the Portuguese side, we can “notice” that the cult of the Apostle Santiago is present in the essence of the towns we visit.

This route that grows year after year in an unstoppable way, stands out for its beautiful landscapes, for the incentive that the proximity of the sea supposes and for its scenic beauty.

In Portuguese territory, the elements that identify the Jacobean itineraries are manifested in the parishes dedicated to Santiago, his establishment in the pilgrimage routes and the chapels built in his honor, as well as bridges, fountains, cruises, images of the Apostle, devotional brotherhoods, Monasteries, heraldry, festivals, etc.

Whether we start it in Portugal or in Spain, the pilgrim will feel “at home”, as you will notice the kindness of its people and the desire to help in whatever is necessary.
