Porto - Braga - Santiago


New Member
Hello to everyone

This summer I'm going to take first camino. Decided to walk from Porto. I know there are 3 different roads: cost, common and through Guimaraes-Braga

I want to walk 3rd road - Porto - Guimaraes-Braga - Ponte de Lima..., but I could not find any info about this road. I have searched this forum also.

I'm interesting in:
- do the road has waypoints
- how about pilgrim accomodation(albegues) as I know they do not exists on coastal road

Any help is appreciated

thank you,

The way to Braga is well marked but there's no albergue. The only pilgrim option, other than commercial, is to ask the firemen (bombeiros) for hospitality. They are very accommodating.

Bom caminho!!
