From Porto to Fatima

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know if there is a guidebook for this route?
I know one can follow the blue arrows from Porto, but I would love to have something on paper too.

Maybe someone has walked this way and would like to share some information about the distances and places to sleep. Carrying my backpack I can do about 18 - 22 Km a day. Also I would like to walk along the coast as far as possible before going inland.

Thanks!

Hi, @Emia,
I don’t know about written guidebooks, but I can tell you that the premier website for walking to Fátima has been de-activated. You can read about the reasons on their website.


The website does, however, still contain GPS tracks and a list of accommodations.

Following the coastal route “backwards” might be aa bit challenging. And I believe the Fátima arrows may also be somewhat sporadic. So I would definitely recommend using your phone to download tracks to follow when things get unclear.

Good luck with the plan! Bom caminho, Laurie

Sorry to hear about the demise of this website. It was useful in helping me plot how to get from Tomar to Fatima in 2018, even though my route wasn't on any official trail. Portuguese locals were also very helpful in keeping me on the proper path.

Hi Emia,

I walked from Porto to Fatima in October of 2017. I kept a blog you may find some helpful info. in there or to at least give you a taste of what the walk was like. Here's the link to my blog - https://dam2015caminodesantiago.wordpress.com/ - click on the Caminho de Fatima link from my home page:).

The Brieley guide for the Portuguese Camino could be used in reverse. It had the diversion to Fatima
