Camino de Santiago

So many have travelled along these tracks, spurred by a great devotion. It is a route that impresses all who follow it with it challenges, delights, and lifelong lessons.
It is a pleasant bike ride, starting from Porto where you will spend the night after your arrival. You will cycle around 60 kilometres per day, following the medieval pilgrims’ way from Porto to Santiago de Compostela. You will go past famous Camino de Santiago landmarks such as Barcelos, on the Cavado River, and Ponte de Lima with its world famous arched bridge. In Valença, you will cross the River Minho on the remarkable bridge built in 1885 by Eiffel, to Tui in Spain. All along the way you will have a chance to speak to the friendly local inhabitants who are always ready to welcome all who come to visit their region.
Sense the excitement that all pilgrims feel as they approach Santiago de Compostela. The air thrills with their enthusiasm and it is clear that this is one of Christianity’s greatest holy cities, a beautiful city to which so many people throughout the ages travelled. By all means, do visit the cathedral to Saint James. It is a place of history, devotion and hope. A lovely town to end your biking journey.
