Portuguese Way

The Portuguese Way is the second most popular route of the Camino de Santiago. It enters Galicia from Portugal and runs parallel to the impressive Rías Baixas, from south to north. It is, therefore, smoother than the French Way, without its slopes, following one of the Roman roads that have been the backbone of the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula since ancient times. It also offers the possibility of discovering Portugal, one of the most interesting European destinations.
