Hi All, I walked the Camino Portuguese from Porto earlier this summer as a solo female hiker and have written a blog about my experience that, hopefully, can help other peregrinos considering taking the same route- the blogs I read before I set off were by far the most valuable in terms of preparation, hopefully mine can now help others, you can find it here

Thanks, Roisin, for your very informative blog. I have just begun reading it and will continue tomorrow as I am now eagerly awaiting the start of my next Camino starting in Lisbon on 25 September. Your writing will no doubt provide some useful insights.

We'll be walking the Camino Portuguese (Central route) from Lisbon to Santiago and then on to Fisterra and Muxia for the first time. We will then be off to walk the Camino Ingles starting in El Ferrol. As we will not be staring from Lisbon until 25 September, you will be several days ahead of us. Enjoy your Camino!

Hi Roisin
Thank you for sharing your adventures.
I was particularly interested from Tui onwards , as next month I am starting from Porto along the coast as far as Caminha before turning inland to Valenca / Tui and will make a point of visiting the Fortress in Valenca as not sure if that's on the route from Caminha thanks again

Hi Roisin
I believe that you have misinterpreted the rules set down by the Cathedral of Santiago regarding the Compostela.Under the heading Pilgrim Passport ,in your blog and referencing the Compostela,and I quote ,"Certifying you have completed the minimum distance of 100km on foot or 200km by bike".unquote.
You state in your blog that you took the train for the last 25 kms into
Santiago .Having done so you then went to the Pilgrim Office and claimed the Compostela.
The rule is that pilgrims on foot must walk the last 100 kms into Santiago.You have misinterpreted the rule .Perhaps you should change this error in your blog so as not to mislead others.

Thank you all for sharing. I will be starting in Porto on the 18th of September. Looking to go the central route. Still feeling a little uncertain about this camino due to the multiple choice of routes. I am glad to see that there will be other pilgrims starting out as well in late September.
