Written for the 2016 season, making note of changes to the camino made within the last 12 months (there are quite a few).
The Camino Portugues App builds off of the success of the other Wise Pilgrim Guides, which are now in their 5th season... the original camino app.
This guide covers the route from Lisbon to Porto, and from Porto to Santiago de Compostela along the 'Central Way',
A full directory of Albergues, camping, hotels, pensions, paradors, and cases rurales. With special attention to those that can be booked online.
No more "stage anxiety" or guide created bottlenecks.
Every location is geo-coded. Devices with GPS enabled will display actual distance from every point (albergue, church, city, etc.) within the app. Devices without GPS will instead show measured distances between points.
Photos of albergues, monuments and other points of interest along the way. Currently 400+ images and growing.
If you have a data connection, or are connected to wifi, you can view the locations of every point on a map. Unfortunately, this feature is unavailable without a connection.
Scrollable Elevation Map:
This one is hard to show with just a screenshot, but the elevation that appears at the top of every city page scrolls East to West. One complete elevation, from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago, uninterrupted by page folds.
Albergue closed early for the season? Have a restaurant that you want to share, or perhaps one to warn others about? Every location in the app gives you the opportunity to leave a comment and to read the comments left by others. No registration necessary.
