The “Caminho Sudeste”

Past OR future Camino
3 French from St. Jean Pied Port, 3 Portuguese from Lisbon, 1 Portuguese from Porto, 1 Primitivo from Oviedo, 19 Lisbon - Fatima, 2 Porto - Fatima, 1 Coimbra - Fátima... Open the caminhos Nascente Fátima - Tomar, Poente Nazaré- Fátima, the north connection from Fátima to Ansião and Caminho Santiago central.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the opening of the route “Caminho Sudeste” (54,3km) that connects Abrantes to Fátima through the countryside. This is the result of the dedicated work of António Domingues, Carlos Sousa, Fernando Taboada and the Associação de Amigos dos Caminhos de Fátima. The Camino starts in Avenida das Forças Armadas, Abrantes in Portugal. On a temporarily basis, the way initially follows the N3.
It’s a trail without major difficulties regarding altimetry and it’s recommended to be done in two days if walking, with nice surprises along the way such as “Vila da Constância”. It’s suitable to be done on foot, by bicycle or on horseback.
There is an Association in Vila Nova that shelters pilgrims. We are working towards improving reception conditions. We recommend you take a mat and a sleeping bag. There is a Youth Hostel (Pousada da Juventude) in Abrantes.

This pilgrim’s route intersects with the Caminho de Santiago in the “Grou” region, but it’s not the Santiago’s Way, nor was there any study done about the past history of this route. - If the main objective is to arrive quickly, then you should go by car. – Among other things, the Camino is a way to withdraw from the bustle of daily life and the conflicts of who is the stronger or better skilled. – There are no shortcuts in the Interior route.
We would like this Camino to move forward into Alto Alentejo. We are working to have the guide of this route available on our website.

Pilgrim’s greetings!
