All of us have heard at least once of the Camino de Santiago, the traditional pilgrimage experience in Spain. But did you know about the Portuguese alternative?
According to the data of the Pilgrim Office of Santiago, the first quarter of this year, the number of travellers who have followed the Portuguese “Camino”, has increased more than 86% compared to 2017. It’s a trendy option to appreciate the pilgrimage heritage following the medieval route of the Camino de Santiago that takes travelers from the picturesque town of Porto to the holy Santiago de Compostela.
The journey on the Portoguese way is an out-of-the-box idea for a memorable incentive progamme where we will guide you along the Portuguese Way to Santiago, enjoying rural roads, ancient chapels and bridges.
Groups will follow the footsteps of the Counts Don Enrique and Doña Teresa who, back in 1097, chose it for the beauty of its dreamy landscapes and stunning scenery.
The 149.5 km route along the Atlantic Coast, enters Galicia by the Miño River and is divided into 5 sections, which can be chosen according to the physical preparation of each group.
The Portuguese Way will take us to places such as Tui, Mos, Pontevedra, Caldas, Padrón with the chance to stop to visit towns such as O Porriño, Redondela, Arcade, Pontecesures, A Escravitude or Milladoiro.
Once in Santiago we suggest to have lunch at Casa Manolo. It started with a small shop in San Agostiño and thanks to word of mouth of its customers, it became a mandatory stop.
