The Portuguese Way – Lisbon to Santarém 1/5

The first section of the Portuguese Way or Camino Portugués #caminhoportugues starts in bright and breezy Lisbon, Portugal’s dazzling capital by the Tejo River and the Atlantic Ocean.This Camino route, traditionally taken by Portuguese pilgrims heads North out of the city, towards Santarém. The trail starts off in a relatively urban area as it takes pilgrims out of the capital and gradually enters the farmlands of what is known as ‘the Garden of Portugal’. Along this section of the Portuguese Way, you will follow the Tejo River valley, walking a trail that is also part of the Caminho de Fátima, the pilgrimage route to Fátima.
