Anna&Michael submitted a new resource:

The Camino Portugues experience - A view from the trail: walking the Camino Portugues

A day-by-day account of walking the Camino Portugues from Lisbon, through Portugal and into northern Spain, hugging the coastline where possible and avoiding the more travelled inland route north of Porto.

For those wanting an understanding of the experience of walking this interesting and diverse Camino, rather than detailed navigation instructions, where to stay, etc.

How to Successfully Prepare for Your Camino
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
"Along country lanes, past vineyards, olive groves and pine forests, up a steep, hot rocky track and onto a cobblestoned road to the high point of Alto de Santa Clara. A very welcome cold beer at a hilltop bar, its owner insisting on stamping our pilgrim credential with her own inked fingerprint. Then, downhill, with a skip in our step, past the Roman aqueduct, a section of which has been sacrilegiously sliced out to make way for a freeway. On towards ancient Coimbra, once a Roman town and the capital of Portugal, now a university city and world heritage site."

It is not correct what you say. The medieval aqueduct was not destroyed to build the road. It is a mistake that many pilgrims make.
The aqueduct was destroyed by the French in the invasion of Portugal by Napoleon's troops.
I hope that this situation will be clarified once and for all, at least for those who read this article.
