The Portuguese Way: from Oporto to Santiago 14 Days / 13 Nights

Description

If you have two weeks available to do the Portuguese Way, why not start it in Oporto?
  • Oporto is one of the largest and most important cities in Portugal, with a recognized historic center (World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1996), a city known for its wine, bathed by the Douro River.
  • In addition, this road will take us through the north of Portugal, where we will meet countless towns, such as Barcelos or Ponte da Lima. And, of course, this trip will take us to enjoy the cuisine of the Portuguese country, and its landscapes.
  • The border with Galicia marks the bridge that unites two cities such as Valença do Minho, in Potugal and Tui in Galicia.
  • In Galicia we will visit and know important and historical urban centers, such as Pontevedra, Caldas de Reis, Padrón ...
  • With our help, it will be much easier for you to complete these last 200 km of the Portuguese Way.
