    Delighted to find this information today. Heading over to walk Lisbon to Santiago on October 2nd and is planning to visit Fatima on route, so this is perfect.
    Just one question. Do I need 2 passports. One for Camino do Tejo and another for Lisbon to Santiago.
    Thank you for all your hard work on our behalf.

    Jerby thanks for your kind words of support. If your final destination its Santiago you should take a pilgrim passport of Santiago. But if you also want to have the pilgrim passport for Fátima please enter our website http://www.caminho.com.pt/credencial_e.html and follow the instructions.
    If you are planning to visit Fátima you also should visit Tomar. Its a beautiful Templar town and its the fastest way for you to return to the Caminho de Santiago from Fátima. You can connect two towns via the Caminho Nascente http://www.caminho.com.pt/mapas_e.html
    Bom caminho Rodrigo Cerqueira

    Rodrigo, thanks so much for your quick response. With this new information I may change my plans. After walking to Fatima I might get a bus to Nazare and then walk back to Tomar. Thanks again for all your help. I've also applied for the passport.

    Hi Jerby
    I'm happy that you decided to do the Caminhos Poente and Nascente.
    The guide It's still under construction, ( sorry about all mistakes) this is a Beta version of the Caminho Poente Guide maybe it's useful to plan your Caminho http://www.caminho.com.pt/mapas/Caminho_poente.pdf
    I wish you a good pilgrimage.

    Hi Rodrigo, one quick question. I am hoping to walk Lisbon to Fatima on October 2nd and on arrival in Fatima I hope to catch a bus to Nazare and stay overnight in the Lab hostel.
    My question is, where do I find the first blue arrow to start my walk back to Fatima and on to Tomar?
    On your guide you mention campismo do calhau but I can't seem to locate it. Is it called by another name? Thanks again for all your help. Really looking forward to getting on the road.
