Walking to Porto from Santiago

Camino(s) past & future
Camino Français September 2017, Camino Finisterre October 2017

Having walked the Camino from St Jean in September I am interested in picking up where I left off in Santiago next year and walking south to Porto. I have read about the Caminho Fatima and wonder if anyone knows how well the route is marked (with blue arrows) on the Spanish side from Santiago?
The Caminho Fatima web site doesn't give much information and their guide to walking it isn't yet available from Santiago to the Portuguese border. I understand that simply following the camino arrows in reverse can be problematic.
Any advise would be appreciated.

You will have blue arrows pointing the right way often enough. Blue arrows will
separate from yellow arrows in town called Ansiao. In places where there will be no blue arrows backtracking the yellow arrows will be neccesary. This might be slight chalenge.
You could consider using my open source map which can be downloaded at caminhomap.com as a help in backtracking yellow arrows.
Best Regards and Bom Caminho
