This interesting map shows the Roman roads In Hispania:
As you can see the Camino Portugués follows Via XIX in Galicia that is indicated on the C. P. near some Miliarium (Roman milestones) that still remain.
Via de la Plata follows Via XXIV.
To remark is the Roman name for Santiago: Assegonia and the name for Porto: Cale
PortuCale was the origin of the name Portugal.

Thank you - very interesting thread.
Here is a link to an ongoing multilayered Swedish Digital Atlas of the Roman Empire and routes throughout Europe which you might find of interest.

Margaret, you never cease to amaze. Such a fascinating link: it's possible to zoom in and get all sorts of inforamtion from the side panel. I'm fascinated by the density of iron-age castros in what is now Galicia - and with how it's possible to more or less trace the modern caminos. We walk very old roads, to be sure.

Real Roman Milestone on the Camino Portuguese. I am I out on Roman Numbering System:-} This was an original milestone that was badly eroded so none of the original details could be made out.
