Hi! I already walked the coastal Camino (Porto Santiago) and would like to take the opportunity to walk again for 5days with an average of 30km per day. I am in good health condition and don't mind walking with heat, provided I have enough water

I am considering the following routes in summer:
- Santarém to Coimbra through Tomar
- Viseu to Chaves (I am afraid it will be a bit short in time)
- the "new" caminho do mar from Estoril to Fatima or Tomar through Sintra, Mafra and Ericeira. Did someone actually walked this camino? Is is well marked?
- Santiago - Fisterra

Any recommendation to enjoy as much as possible nature, calm and historical places?

Thank you and buen camino!

Having just returned from walking it, I would thoroughly recommend Santiago to Fisterra/Muxia. We absolutely loved finishing at Muxia - it felt very special. With 5 days, you could comfortably do this.
Probably more nature/calm than historical - from Cee to Fisterra was particularly beautiful as was the walk on to Muxia.

I agree with Rich1. The walk from Santiago to Muxia via Cee and Finisterre was the most special time for me. I found myself feeling emotional and anxious once in Santiago. I believe it was the culmination of something I thoroughly loved being a part of which created the emotional feelings, and the throngs of humanity and the height of consumerism were a stark reminder of what I was trying to leave behind. The simplicity of the Camino was wonderful. Within an hour of leaving Santiago behind the next day, I felt an immediate sense of relief. Buen Camino whatever path you take. Thank you, Ivar, for this wonderful forum. I visit it every day and feel such a connection to you all.

Wow! I couldn't say it any better! I feel exactly the same. I live thousands of miles away in southern Africa, but my whole being can still relive the feeling I had when I left Santiago d C and set out for Negreira.
Ivar, this site keeps my memories alive! Thank you and blessings

I totally agree. I did this last September and of all the lovely places we walked through, Muxia was my favourite and a beautiful place to finish the pilgrimage.
