greetings, all.

In the near future as group of us would like to walk about 2-3 days from Portugal to Santiago--where in Portugal should one begin?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jaycee,

Welcome to the board!

Have a look at these messages, as one our members "Pilgrim" just finished a Porto to Santiago pilgrimage.

viewtopic.php?t=148

It seems like "Pilgrim" walked Tui to Santiago in 5 days. Tui is just inside the Spanish border, have a look at this map:

Regarding starting points in Portugal. On a trip (by car) down to Porto a few weeks ago, my wife and I stopped in Braga and really fell in love with it. It has a nice old town and cathedral.

Alternatively, on the border between Portugal and Spain there is an old fortress (La fortaleza) that has markets every weekend. From there it would be a 10 minute walk to Spain; it's just across the river.

Anyone with any ideas about a good starting point in Portugal?

Greetings from a rainy and windy Santiago,
Ivar
