Plan to walk beginning May 2017
Hi All!

My mom and I are planning to walk the Camino from Porto to Santiago starting on the 16th of May 2017. We are planning to walk the Coastal route up to Caminha, and would then like to join the Central route at Valenca, walking via Vila Nova de Cerveira. We would like to know whether this route is marked, and is it easily accessible? I see on Google maps there is a main road that one can follow, the N13, but we would prefer walking the road less traveled by car. We estimate that this is about 30km, and would like to do this in one day.

I look forward to hearing your insights!

Best regards,
Lize

Jsalts map reference http://www.caminador.es/ is very good. These maps are downloadable and very detailed all the way to SdC. We walked from Caminha to Valenca last July with no map and no problem. Just bookmark the maps and download what you need as you need it. The Camino winds it's way on streets through neighborhoods with lots of beautiful homes and scenery. You should have no problem but if you do lose the path just keep going East and stay near the river Minho which will be easy for you to see for most of that stretch.

Thanks Paintboy. Did you do Porto to Caminha on the Coastal route, and from there to Valenca and further on the Central route, or did you revert back to the Coastal route?

Hi Jill

Thank you for the links, it is really very helpful. I think I am missing something, the caminador.es site is in Spanish, is there an English option? Or is it only in Spanish?

Thank you!
Hi Lize, no English version, sorry! Use Google Translate:

https://translate.google.com/

for any words that you don’t understand, but maps are pretty easy to follow in the original language.
Jill
