    In 2019 I, like you, started in Barcelos. I stayed in Barcelos Way Guest house. My train from Porto was delayed, it was late and very dark when I arrived. The owner of the Guesthouse sent a taxi to pick me up at the train station and stayed...

    Its what I would call gently rolling, pretty easy walking. However, many of us have walked from St Jean or Pamplona, so by that stage are pretty match fit.
