On forwarding excess luggage from start to finish

I know we can have our luggage stored at the travel agent in Santiago, but as I want to off load 3/4 of my pack in Porto before setting off - what is the best and cheapest way of sending it on to Santiago. I'd like to be able to pick up some clean items after 2 weeks walking with bare minimum and thus some smelly gear!
Thanks anyone

You can use the Correos - Post Office. They will store your package (even a 20kg suitcase) for up to 14 days. They have charges on their website for both boxes and postage.

The Spanish Post will not work for sending a parcel from Portugal. They will hold it for your arrival but it must be mailed via the Portugese mail system.
