    A Second Camino - but which route to take?

    Hello all Having completed the Camino Frances last August and September, the idea of returning to walk another Way to Santiago has rarely been far from my mind. Now I've finally decided that it must be done - and after dabbling with the idea of walking the Ingles, or the triangle between...

    Which Camino - Portugues, Norte, Frances or Other?

    Hi all, I'm going to be kids free in a couple of years and want to enjoy some "me time"! So 2022 looks like being a great year for a walk after the holy year in 2021. I completed the Frances by bike in 2017 over 12 days and don't think I really did the pilgrimage justice, so I'm thinking...

    Points of interest from Tui to Santiago

    Hi everyone! These forums have been an amazing resource - they helped prepare my boyfriend and me for walking the Primitivo in 2018. Our pictures and reports along the way have inspired my parents to walk the Camino as well. We're planning to accompany them wherever they decide, as we're super...

    Camino Portugues costal with crossover at Viana do Castelo

    Hi there, we are planning to do the Camino Portuguese this spring with two of our best friends. We ourselves have done a few 'walkabouts' but we look forward introducing our friends to the magic we keep finding again and again. Because of my partner issues with her feet we want to avoid...

    Choosing 5 12km sections

    My mother turns 80 next year and the Camino is on her bucket list. She feels she can walk 12km per day for 5 days. We have chosen to do the Camino Portuguese central as it should be flatter and scenic. My husband is available to drop us off and pick us up and the beginning and end of each day if...

    How to get to Ponte de Lima?

    I'm flying to Porto, but I only have one week to walk. So I was thinking of starting at Ponte de Lima. Does anyone know how to get from Porto (airport) to Ponte de Lima? I found this bus, but it leaves at 15.30 and my plane lands 14.50, so that is too close, I guess...

    I was lucky enough to hear Vespers at a few locations on my Camino in 2015 on the Frances. Now I am getting ready to walk the Camino Portugues in August and would love to hear that again. Are there places on the Portugues you have attended Vespers that I can mark in my Brierley so I won't miss them?

    Portugues vs Frances for the anxious

    Hola! everyone (first post) I had been pretty set on doing the Portugues, either late this year (October/November) or early next (March/April), largely as I saw it as avoiding possible accommodation problems by taking a quieter route. Having read on this forum about the fewer number of...

    NEW or USED? Brierley 2016 Version Guide Portugués Guide

    My guidebook was stolen when I was on Camino in May 2016 at Rates. While I'm no longer on Camino, I find that I miss having the book to refer back to. I'm wondering if anyone has a new or used "A Pilgrim's Guide to Camino Portugués" mid-2016 version by John Brierley they'd like to donate or...

    Camino Português in October

    Hi to everyone. Two years ago I did the Camino Frances in January. I knew exactly that I needed winter dresses. Now I'm planning to do the Camino Português next end of September or in October, from Lisboa to Santiago. I don't understand at all if I need summer or winter dresses. I have got only...

Any observations...
