After a few false starts due to Covid, am finally booked to start in Porto in a week's time. Planning to route through Barcelos to Ponte de Lima and then onto Tui but in looking at the map, it seems a detour to Braga and then onto PdL may be an option.

Is there a signposted route from Braga and what is it called?

Thanks to all. Next question - Porto - Barcelos - Braga on the CP or Porto - Guimarães - Braga on the Torres?

Seems Guimarães is a more interesting destination than Barcelos.

Ah ok. Got it! 🤣 Sorry for the incorrect info @Corned Beef
No worries, it's confusing with all these different caminos! Hopefully my overview on the Portuguese caminos that's coming next week will offer some clarity. ;)

Seems Guimarães is a more interesting destination than Barcelos.
I would agree with that, personally, but it might depend on how interested you are in Portuguese history. Guimarães is the place where Portugal was born (by virtue of a document asserting its independence being signed there) so it's a significant place for Portuguese people. It's also a lovely town with a great castle, a palace and a 13th-century church. On our camino this year we arrived in Guimarães by complete coincidence on Portuguese national day (June 10) with a lot of people celebrating so it was a wonderful time to be there.

It's the Torres. It's a 33km stage from Braga to Ponte de Lima and it is signposted at least in the beginning (we actually followed the Torres arrows incorrectly for a few minutes after São Frutuoso while trying to pick up the Geira). Details in Spanish from the official site here.
You guys are the go to experts on everything Camino in Portugal and far western Spain for sure! Thanks.
