The Portuguese Way (sp: Camino Portuguese) is a great option for pilgrims looking for a more rural experience on the Camino de Santiago. It starts in Lisbon, the Portuguese capital city and home of several UNESCO sites; and passes through Santarem (one of the last Moorish bastions in Portugal), Coimbra (with its 13th C. university - once the best in the world) and Porto (UNESCO World heritage site and home of Port wine). Along the Portuguese Way, you will travel along terraced fields, vineyards and sleepy villages.

The last 100km, starts in the border town of Tui, which has a beautiful historic centre and fortress facing its counter-part in Portugal on the other side of the river. See the full description of the Camino Portuguese Way and itinerary or the travel guide.
