Camino Portugues from Lisbon to Santarem

Camino Portugues from Lisbon to Santarem map

From Lisbon to Santarem, the starting point of the Portuguese Way, the Camino Portuges

The Portuguese Way or Camino Portugues became very popular after the country gained its independence in the mid 12th century. Nowadays, some people claim the Portuguese Way offers one of the richest cultural and architectural heritages of the whole of the existing Caminos. The Camino Portugues starts in Lisbon and crosses Lisboa, Alentejo and the Central and Northern regions of Portugal. It then enters Spain in Tui to continue North through Galicia and towards Santiago de Compostela! Read more

Camino Portugues 1/5 Day 1 Lisbon

Located on the Atlantic Ocean coast and on the banks of River Tejo, the westernmost capital city of Europe is a great place to visit and relax. It has both historical interest and the seaside buzz. Visitors can visit UNESCO World Heritage sites such as the Jeronimo Monastery and Belem Tower amongst other interesting architectural buildings and squares. There are so many things to see and do in Lisbon that visitors have access to a wide array of different experiences.

Camino Portugues 1/5 Day 2 Lisbon to Santa Iria de Azoia (26km, 5h)

From Lisbon, the Portuguese Way of the Camino de Santiago also follows the famous Caminho de Fatima, all the way to Santarem. Leaving Lisbon is relatively easy as we follow river Tejo via Parque das Nacoes. We then follow a farm track through a green valley and it's hard to believe you are only few miles away from the heart of Lisbon! The short first walking day soon brings us to Santa Iria de Azoia where we spend the night.

Camino Portugues 1/5 Day 3 Santa Iria de Azoia to Vila Franca de Xira (22km, 5h)

Leaving this suburb of Lisbon, we start the day by a gentle climb up to then walk down to Povoa de Santa Iria. The Camino then follow Rio Tejo mostly along a flat and busy national road towards the attractive and colorful Vila Franca de Xira, home of a famous bullfighting festival.

Camino Portugues 1/5 Day 4Vila Franca de Xira to Azambuja (20km, 7h30)

Leaving Vila Franca de Xira, we continue our way through a region of where bullfighting and horse breeding are part of the daily life. The Camino continues parallel to the Tejo River before heading inland towards the pleasant town of Azambuja, another place famous for its "running of the bulls" yearly event in May.

Camino Portugues 1/5 Day 5 Azambuja to Santarem (32km, 8h)

This last walking day brings us to the highest point of this section, at a mere 110 metres high, in Santarem, which is also the final stop over of our first stretch of the Portuguese Way. This is a very enjoyable walk as half of the day is spent through crop fields, fruit groves and vineyards.
