The Portuguese Way along the Coast

The Portuguese Way along the coast is a simple route that is suitable for all types of pilgrims. In addition to its undeniable scenic quality, it is the perfect route to do at any time of the year. In summer you can enjoy the beach atmosphere of the coastal towns, taking the occasional dip; while in winter it is the perfect route for those who wish to escape from the crowds and bustle of other busier routes.

Not all pilgrimage routes can offer you a swim at the beach after the end of each stage. The sea breeze on your face, sun and beach, what more could you ask for?
