Walking around Spain

We’re just beginning to plan our 2022 walking adventure. We’d like to start with the Camino Frances and then do the Portuguese Camino in reverse. From Lisbon we’re thinking that we will walk around the coast of Spain to Barcelona. Eventually, we think that we’ll end up in Rome.

Any suggestions for the Lisbon to Barcelona route?

Rent a house in Santiago (1 month minimum)
300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).

The Fishermen's Trail, the coastal route of the Rota Vicentina, starts at São Torpes, about 120km south of Lisbon (nearby Sines and Porto Covo are reachable by bus from Lisbon or if you'd rather take no transport, you could look into walking Lisbon-São Torpes). From São Torpes it's 13 listed stages on the Rota Vicentina along the coast via Sagres at the southwestern most point of Europe to Lagos. The Sagres-Lagos stretch overlaps with an ecovia that you can walk all along the Algarve (south) coast of Portugal to Vila Real de Santo António, across the river from Spain. I'm not sure what you'd do from there but that would get you started at least!

I can't help directly with your question but I would like to suggest that after Santiago you could spend a week to walk SdC-Finisterra-Muxia-SdC (or the reverse way) before going to Portugal. It is a good walk but really I'm suggesting it because I would love to say "I started in France, walked completely across Spain to the ocean and then down to Portugal."

If at Barcelona you decide not to go to Rome you could walk the Camino Catalan de San Juan de la Peña to the Camino Aragonese to the Camino Francés. Then backwards a day to Pamplona and then the Camino Baztan in reverse back to France. That would have your track completing a circle around Iberia.

Have a nice walk (no matter how you do it).

To continue on from this point along the coast of Spain, here's a recent GPX track that will take you from Ayamonte (across the river from Vila Real de Santo António to Tarifa where the excellent GR7/E4 route begins. Along the way, you will cross the Parque Nacional de Doñana, 30 kilometers of untouched wild beach, best walked on the firm sand at low tide, with a boat ride on a ferry across the Rio Guadalquiver to Sanlúcar de Barrameda at the end of the day. It is a glorious walk!

You’re correct. It’s been a while since I posted. We’re now in the Netherlands.
In isn’t of. So, are you subject to Schengen visa limits or free as the proverbial? Knowledge qualifies advice. As in I would never advise an innocent to test the echo in the Reading Room of the British Library but I would give that advice to one who should know better 😉

🤣 I'm only laughing 'cos, as an ex-public servant, I can recognize a slide when I see one. I spent my career trying to get a straight answer out of a safety-pin 😉

Thru 2022. You might make it all the way round. Buen Caminos
You’re very astute! The corona regulations have been areal impediment to our “Europe“ plans.
