Guided Caminho Português Central Route
September 20 thru October 5, 2019
The Caminho Português has been one of the main pilgrimage routes to Santiago for centuries. Set out on a journey of discovery, not only of the country but of yourself as you follow in the footsteps of countless pilgrims and walkers.
This fully guided tour travels northwards through ancient paths in the beautiful rural countryside, passing vineyards, woods, farms, tiny hamlets and small villages, towns, and historic cities.
This is a route enriched by the presence of chapels, churches, convents, stone altars usually found at crossroads and wayside crosses. We will stay in Country Houses (Quintas) and three-star hotels on this tour and your baggage will be transported each morning to our next hotel or Quinta. This tour includes breakfasts and dinners of fabulous local cuisine and delicious local wines.
We will begin our adventure in the old city of Porto, Portugal. Porto is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and well worth exploring. Don't forget Porto is famous for its Port Wine Caves - no trip to Porto is complete without a visit to at least one of these Caves.
The next morning we will be transported from our hotel in the center of the old city to Vilar do Pinheiro where we will begin our walk to Santiago. The walk to Santiago winds its way through some of the most beautiful countrysides Portugal has to offer.
