The Camino Portugues became an extremely popular route when the country gained its independence – way back in the 12th Century. Today, some believe it to be the route richest in cultural and architectural curiosities. The Camino Portugues starts in Lisbon and crosses the Alentejo and the central and northern regions of Portugal. It moves into Spain then, to Tui, and continues north through Galicia and on to Santiago de Compostela.
