Hi, I am starting at Porto early in March and really looking forward to it! Unfortunately we won't meet, but I am sure there are others on their way to Santiago in spring. Anyone else going be on the Portugues in March?

All the best,

I've just returned from Camino Portugues a few days ago. In Porto we stayed at the following Pension: It was central, clean and a fair price. The route from Porto to Valenca at the border is EXTREMELY well marked. It seems that there were arrows every 20 meters or so. We skipped the first 10 km. out of POrto by taking the bus to Meia (#600 bus leaves from Aliados)--In Meia follow signs to zoo and at Blue tiled church near zoo you can find yellow arrows. We chose to not walk out of porto as we heard it was on busy roads the first 10 km. Have a great time.

Cost of accomodation on Camino Portugues

Can anyone out there give me an idea what accomodation costs would be from Porto to Santiago? I am planning on going September 2010. In some preliminary reading, indications are that the 5 Euros per night thing we experinced on Camino Frances aren't as common here.
