Lisbon will be crowded (July/Aug ‘23)


Traded in my work boots for hiking ones
Time of past OR future Camino
Frances, Portuguese, Aragon, Norte, SJWayUK, Nive
Just a heads up for those traveling to/from/through Lisbon this summer: the Catholic Youth Day is scheduled for July 30-August 8, 2023 there. Expect hundreds of thousands of youths there that week plus travel to get a bit packed pre and post. Additionally, hostels may not be available in Lisbon and the surrounding areas.
Ideal pocket guides for during & after your Camino. Each weighs only 1.4 oz (40g)!
Thank you for the alert.

I would imagine a reasonable percentage of those people will also be either visiting or making a pilgrimage to Fatima as well during that time.
