      The main reason to walk the last 100km is to end in Santiago and receive the Compostela. So if that’s not your goal, I would avoid the last 100km, as it can be very busy (Francés) and/or not as interesting (in my opinion) as earlier stretches on...

      mvanert reacted to Jodean's post in the thread Porto to Vila do Conde with Like Like.
      My albergue, Lost Inn, was located directly below the cathedral. It was easy to walk out the door in the morning and be at the river in about 10 min. Walking along the river to the ocean at sunrise was great. There were so many birds. I really...

      If you walk down the R. Hintze Ribeiro to the beach there's a little tourist office at the end with a pleasant café alongside - both have stamps for your credential before you hit the seafront The TO also had maps and leaflets on the...

      Walking out of Porto along the river to the ocean is not an urban walk. It is actually quite beautiful. Do it in the morning at sunrise. I really enjoyed this walk to Matosinhos. Not sure why people want to take the metro or bus for this part.

      We walked the Litoral / Coastal for many days and I remember mainly wooden boardwalks. When we did cross over there was no obvious route and so simply took the local bus. Can’t remember which town. So to answer your questions I think you could...

      As noted, the Litoral/Coastal is flat until Castelo Do Neiva, and even after that there are only a few hills of about 100 meter elevation gain. If you stick to the Litoral you will even avoid a few of the 100 meter hills on the Coastal. In...

      When we walked the Central Route, my wife had significant knee problems. However, it wasn’t due to the hills. The cause of her knee problems were the cobblestones. Walking many miles through Portugal on the cobbles caused a great deal of knee...

      I have a bad knee and have to be very careful about walking both up and down hills, mostly down, would the Central route be much different than the Litoral route? Where is the last place to change over to the Central from the Litoral? I leave...
