Olá,

some pilgrims want to visit the beautiful town of Porto on their way back home. They have ordered their Credential at Ivar´s shop in advance. So they can easily start at the airport heading towards Angeiras > Vila do Conde.

There is a tunnel under the runway!

It´s easy to get there:

After the tunnel:

Follow the green arrows!

Later on your way:

Follow the signs to praias and campismo, leading to Angeiras > Vila do Conde along the coast. To Vila do Conde is on the main road!.

Thanks Rainer, I bet this thread will encourage some to start walking from the airport who otherwise wouldn't be able to figure it out.

I remember hearing about an albergue that was close to the Porto airport, and I'm wondering if this path passes by it or close to it.

Bom caminho, Laurie

Olá Laurie,

From Porto Airport to the nearest albergue, Pargue de Campismo Angeiras, it´s about 50 min to 1 hour to walk. Pilgrims can stay in nice bungalows for 9 € to 13 € with their Credential. Open 24 hours. The next Albergue will be S. Tiago in Labruge, 25 min to walk from Angeiras and a bit of path. There is a new albergue in Vila do Conde, Santa Clara, 2 hours to walk from Angeiras.

Why not? It´s up to the pilgrim! Well , I have done the way from Porto to Angeiras more than 20 times when living in Angeiras. Walking from Matosinhos (Mercado) over the Ponte Movel to Angeiras takes you a bit more than 2 hours. Including the Metro ride - roundabout three hours.

.
I think Laurie means the one run by the two sisters or cousins, a few minutes walk from the airport. Airporto Hostel. Much closer than the Angeiras camping.

Olá Anemone, thank you for mentioning it. I´ve never been there. You are right, it is much closer to the airport, but when your flight arrives not that late, I think it´s better to start walking. I know two German girls. They arrived Angeiras after midnight last year.

Better for whom? And under what conditions? After a trans-Atlantic flight, I am not looking to walk. If I had come in from Australia I would most certainly not be looking to walk. And then it depends on where one wants to walk to the day after...
