Launched in 2010, this is the furthest east, least developed,

most difficult and longest of the Caminos de Santiago in Portugal.

If this caminho wasn’t designed by cyclists, it is certainly largely followed by them.

Of the 300 or so caministas each year, cyclists outnumber hikers about 3:1.

Not surprising really given the numerous and extensive road-walking sections and given that

56% of the stages are over 30km, 16% over 40km (mainly due to the lack of accommodation in many areas).

 That said, it includes some of the most stunning places to stay, architecture, vistas, etc.

you’re ever likely to come across.

 A nightmare to navigate (without GPS)…signposting largely peters out after Stage 6

…and definitely one for the brave or foolhardy!

 

[For a more hiker-friendly, easterly camino, try the Caminho Nascente or a mixture of the two...]
