    The announcement has just come in that while Portugal in general will advance to the next stage of opening up on Monday, seven concelhos (districts) will stay at the current phase, while four will go back into lockdown.

    COVID Portugal’s covid status updated here

    Yes, Fisherman's Trail is the plan! We are waiting for an announcement later today about whether the next phase of opening up will go ahead countrywide on Monday as scheduled and we'll make a final decision after that.

    COVID Portugal’s covid status updated here

    It's impossible to say with any certainty, of course, but I would hope so. The next phase of reopening is scheduled for next Monday, although the countrywide R(t) transmission index is above 1 (1.06 at last check).

    LIVE from the Camino Buddhist monk en route

    He’s in Aveiro which is further south than Porto, so the border might be open by the time he gets to it (currently closed until April 16th IIRC).

    LIVE from the Camino Buddhist monk en route

    Sorry, I don't know. But maybe if Viranando went to the ferry departure point and explained his situation, he would be allowed on without paying even though there is normally a charge? Good luck in any case!

    how to travel the camino for first timer from malaysia asia

    Hi Celina and good luck with your camino! There are many ways you can go. The most common route is the Camino Francés ('French Way'). The starting point is usually considered to be St Jean Pied de Port in France, close to the border with Spain, which is about 800km from Santiago. To get there...

    Strange findings in Portugal and Galizia

    So long as this thread has been bumped, it's not 'salad eaters' exactly but 'little lettuces'. Since the Portuguese word for lettuce (alface, and the diminutive alfacinha) is derived from Arabic, it is supposed that this nickname comes from Lisbon's Muslim time (714-1147) during which it is said...
