      Viana do Castelo is a nice town for a day's rest. Go to the large church, Monte Santa Luzia for a visit. Also, if you stay in Caminha, the townspeopl are very proud of the celtic ruins above the town at Santa Trega. Get a taxi up there - it's...

      I will second that recommendation! Cycling-rentals.com and ask for Didi. She outfitted six of us with e-bikes last year and the company is fabulous.

      I would love to learn of your overnight stops and accommodations here as well. I plan to walk the Camino Ingles into SdC, then on to Finisterre aftwards. Would love some ideas. I normally don't do long days when I'm solo, so this sounds great...

      I bought a nice pair of Salomon trail runners at Caminoteca in Pamplona on a Sunday a few years ago. I don’t remember the brands they carried but the trail runners worked for me all the way to SdC. They were the only place open on Sunday and the...

      I honestly wish that I'd worried a bit more about my footwear. I bought a pair of low ankle boots, thought I'd broken them in enough, but by Puente la Reina, my heels looked like raw meat. Thankfully, there was Caminoteca back in Pamplona...

      I always use the aemet app when I'm in Spain. It's linked to the Spanish national weather service. You can specify regions, municipalities, etc. I always felt it was reliable. The regular website is aemet.es.

      The Camino Portuguese is good for cycling, but the portion from Lisbon to Porto is hilly and the last leg into Porto can be quite rocky. However, if you are okay with starting in Porto, you can cycle the Senda Litoral (beach route) and/or the...
