Help/suggestions for Portuguese Coastal

Planning to walk Camino Frances

Hi all!

I just finished the Camino Francés and now want to walk the Portuguese Coastal route! Only I will do it backwards....so from Santiago down to Porto.

Can anyone give me info on the suggested stops so I can work out a route? I have read that it is nice to mix it with the espiritual variation which I would love to do.

Any help, suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks so much!!!

I have also done the Norte the first 10 days r challenging and I did it in late August so it was hot and pretty crowded. As for skipping parts of the costal, the only city I didn't like was viana do Castelo. The bridge crossing is dangerous and we had a very bad experience in the albergue there.

Thanks Boski! Did you do the Norte in reverse? That’s what I’ll be doing. Wondering how challenging that will be
