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.

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 :)

We've made a spur of the moment decision to walk from Porto on the central route in the first week of October. Anyone walking at the moment? How busy is it and how is accommodation holding up...
Hi, I'm starting on Sunday October 2nd from Lisbon. Flying in from Dublin, Ireland. Just wondering if there are any others starting then as I'm travelling on my own and would appreciate some...
Hallo, I lost my airpods on my camino Portugues between Porto and Santiago. Thought they were in my luggage but now at home and know I lost them. Somebody maybe found them? Thanks! Sita 🌷
