Book recommendation Lisbon to Santiago

Camino(s) past & future
Camino Frances (Aug 1, 2019)
Can anyone recommend a book available in Kindle form that tells about the towns and sights along the Camino Portuguese? (I am cycling the Portuguese Coastal Route right now).

I already have a paper copy of Brierley’s map book and Wise Pilgrim’s “The Camino Portuguese” app, which is saving me from getting lost as I cycle the route “backwards” from Santiago. Even without internet service or wifi, the Wise Pilgrim app shows me as a moving blue dot on my iphone. It is only necessary to keep it charged and mounted on my left handlebar where I can see it. 👌

I just finished walking the Camino Frances for which “Moon Camino Santiago” fulfilled this purpose well. But there’s not a Moon book for the Portuguese.

Starting from Lisbon I used the combination of the Wise Pilgrim App which was absolutely invaluable and the book by Harms et al 'Camino Portuguese' which I had downloaded into the Kindle App on my iPhone. The book gave me all the information that I needed about the route, accomodation and some information about historic points of interest along the way. Its a Camino guide and not a tourist guide and there may be books that give more tourist information but it worked well for me.

Gracias, looks like the better of the 2 available Kindle books. And absolutely agree about the Wise Pilgrim app without whose blue dot I would be lost every day.

addicted since 1999 (Aragones, CF), lots of caminos in Spain and Portugal since then
Take gronze.com to find the route and accomodation. It's understandable without spanish skills, but the full value you get from the countless spanish comments about the places where you can stay. The Chrome browser translates automatically at least to an understandable level.
