Hi can anyone recommend me any good books on the Camino Portuguese especially on the interior route from Porto to SDC. Or any youtube videos ... I find reading a book on other pilgrims journeys were very helpful to me when I walked the Frances in 2016

Many thanks

Hi, Fr alasdair, If you are interested in the Interior route, which goes from Viseu to Chaves, then to Verin in Spain and into Santiago on the Sanabres, you should scroll through this subforum: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/forums/camino-portugues-interior-route.163/ There are several detailed foruom reports.

But since you say "from Porto", I think you are probably interested in the Central route. That is the more traditional Camino route, which goes up to Valenca do Minho and then over to Spain at Tui. There is also a subforum for blogs, etc. for that route here: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/forums/camino-portugues-blogs-photo-albums.60/

I'm pretty sure you will find what you are looking for. One outstanding blog that describes Maggie's walk from Lisbon to Santiago is online at https://magwood.me/my-caminos/camino-portuguese/

Bom caminho, Laurie

"Portuguese Camino - In Search of the Infinite Moment" Amazon/Kindle books authored
"Slow Camino"
Part travel guide, part meditation, part adventure tale, Portuguese Camino: In Search of the Infinite Moment is a memoir of two journeys taken simultaneously—one interior, one exterior. Terence Callery, a former aquaculture executive and alpaca farmer from Maine, undertakes the legendary Portuguese route of the Camino de Santiago. As he walks, he delves into the history and flavor of the local cultures, as well as his own personal history, in a travelogue that is soothing and satisfying.

The Practice Portuguese podcast guys (Rui and Joel) are doing a video series about the CP at the moment. I haven't watched any of them as I don't like to see photos/videos of places before I go there myself, but here's a link to the first one.
