The Portuguese Way – Coimbra to Porto 3/5

The third section of the Camino Portugués or Portuguese Way route of the Camino de Santiago takes pilgrims from the pretty and pocket-sized city of Coimbra, famous for its UNESCO-listed old university to colourful Porto, home of Port wine.

From Coimbra, the Portuguese Camino continues North towards the Atlantic coast and the superb city of Porto. On this part of the Caminho Portugués you will walk past vineyards and peaceful woodlands, crossing river valleys and following old Roman tracks at times. Pretty little villages and hamlets will welcome you on your way. Your final destination is the centre of Porto, a stunning and lively UNESCO World Heritage city. If you can, plan your trip to arrive in Porto in time for its traditional Sao Joao (Mid-Summer) celebrations.
