Various ones.
I recently joined a facebook group who are promoting the Camino from Braga which goes via the Penudes national park, I started to get feeds for another route which is been waymarked at this moment from Braga it is not a Camino de Santiago but goes to Muxia and intersects a with the CP a couple of times, it's not a historical route but goes through several Marian places of pilgrimage here is a link I took from Luis Freixo website who has been heavily involved in setting this up https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&s...FjAAegQIABAB&usg=AOvVaw1ai5voe2qccFzHgsY5DzSq it is a download, on my Facebook feed Portuguese and Galician groups are working together in waymarking it.

I toured Portugal in 2017 including Braga and the beautiful Peneda National Park. That would be wonderful if waymarking was improved enough for this route to take off. It will definately include lots of ups and downs, especially in the park!

I keep getting feeds for this route on my Facebook, the route looks stunning on the Portuguese sections after Braga, it is probably waymarked or looks it on the photos that I keep seeing. Senhora da Peneda is place of pilgrimage and is very near to where the Camino Geira is as it passes by. It would be possible to start in Braga on this route and then after Senhora da Peneda follow the Via Marina until it comes close to Castro Laboreiro and follow local walking routes to it and onto the Camino Geira and then Santiago.

Far too many...
There isn't a lot of info about this route. I'm looking for a map of the Mariana from Santiago, with accomodation, but I don't find anything.
