The first section of the Camino Portugues starts in the capital city of Portugal, Lisbon, and heads North to reach Santarem and its magnificent scenic views over the area. After the urban areas of the beginning, the route heads towards a rich agricultural area, often considered as “the garden of Portugal”. On this leg, the Camino also coincides with the famous Caminho de Fatima and mainly follows the Tejo river valley. The flat landscape of the area makes it doable to anybody with an average level of fitness.

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.

This section is the last section you walk in Portugal as it moves from the coastal city of Porto north and inland passing by traditional and historical villages and towns to the border with Spain and the town of Tui.
