Portuguese Coastal Camino: Where are the guidebooks?

Hi. We're walking from Vila Do Conde to Santiago in June. Can anyone suggest a decent detailed guide to the route? Having done the Frances, I am spoiled with the Brierley guide - I know there is a Portuguese Way version he has produced but it only takes a few pages at the end to cover the coastal route. All suggestions welcome - thanks!

Johnnie Walker's guide has some info, too, I believe. https://www.caminodesantiago.me/com...rto-to-santiago-2017.124/download?version=411

And there's a map on this website showing you the many possible combinations of Central Route plus Coastal Route.

Which way are you thinking of walking?
Thanks very much! I'll check those out. We are aiming to hug the coast from Vila do Conde as far as Vigo. To be honest, I had originally thought there was just one route. Its become a little more complex now it seems - so I think we are going to be walking the "Senda Litoral" rather than the Caminho Coastal proper. From Vigo we head inland to eventually rejoining the traditional route at Pontevedra.

Hi there, we are planning on doing the Portuguese camino from Porto to Santiago and are undecided as to which route to take. Coastal or interior. We prefer less highways and roads and more gravel and path. Historical and scenery. Any suggestions or tips would be great !!

There is a guide book from Sérgio Fonseca. Price is 12 € + 2 € or a bit more shipping cost:
