Tui to Santiago de Compostela

< Back

The Portuguese Way is considered one of the most fascinating and culturally rich routes, both in terms of architecture and culture. Our beautiful route begins at the northern border of Portugal in the town of Tui and ends in the city of Santiago de Compostela, marking the final stretch of the Portuguese Camino. Over the 114 km route, we will experience diverse landscapes - passing through large forests, traditional agricultural areas, small villages, and picturesque and historical towns.

As we walk through the beautiful scenery, we can enjoy the local cuisine and the exquisite Albariño wine that the region has to offer. We will visit Arcade, a town famous for its annual shellfish festival, as well as Pontevedra and its classic old quarter. Walking along this trail is an experience not to be missed!

The route begins at the beautiful and historic town of Tui, situated on the banks of the River Minho on the border between Spain and Portugal.
