It's a pleasure to announce to you that the guide to walk the hole Camino Portugues, from Lisbon to Santiago, is available complete free on the next website:

Then choosing "Caminos"
Then "Camino Portugues"

The AGACS was marking this Camino from Lisbon to Porto during the Spring of 2.006.

At the first is available in Spanish and Portuguese.

I hope it will help you to prepare this Camino.

Buen Camino Portugues,

Great addition to the guide (en Français) from the éditions Lepère for someone who is considering a departure in April.
As they say in the old song... avril au Portugal, à deux c'est idéal.

Thank you Javier for this good news.

3rd Edition. More content, training & pack guides avoid common mistakes, bed bugs etc
beware that the Lepere guide is via Fatima

Thanks Peter, this new guide just gives me more options for next spring.

I am not yet decided which route to take; I am not a fan of these big sites like Fatima or Lourdes, so I still hesitate wether I should take the Tomar route. Should I go to Braga ? The way to Fatima is well marked, so maybe I should take it ? Aaaah decisions.... :lol:

Your site is helping me a lot with info; I just wished my Spanish was better to read all the links you provided; I try hard though.

the way to Fatima is well used, but I'm not sure what the status is with the continuation north. The CNC haven't told us yet what their route is, so whether it's the same as the Lepere guide or not??

If you do go with this guide, the author (who calls himself Gerard du Camino if you don't know) publishes an update sheet on his website ... rtugal.htm

And for English-speakers, as the CSJ factsheet notes, John Brierley has published overview pages Lisbon-Porto on his website - presumably there'll be a new edition of his guide at some point.
I used Brierley's guide, although I only did the Tui-Santiago portion. Good news on this new free guide, though. Hopefully one day there will be an English translation?

I did visit Fatima before I walked, but I took the bus :)
