The PORTUGUESE ROAD, as its name suggests, is a route that crosses almost all the territory of Portugal from the South to the North. From the 12th century to the present day pilgrimage routes departing from the neighboring country of large population centers like Lisbon, Santarém, Coimbra, Porto, Braga ... and the main gateway to Galicia was and remains the ancient city of Tui.
And it is precisely in this border town, where we put the beginning of this interesting and historical route, as Mundicamino, for the moment, only treats the Jacobin routes passing through Spain.
The route begins - more specifically - on the international bridge over the Minho River, whose flow is, in turn, a border between the two nations. Then, through the narrow streets of the fortified citadel, the mighty Cathedral of Tui is reached, always ready to bless the pilgrim's passage.
The whole course runs through the Galician territory and its profile is the most diverse and surprising because of the numerous songs it hosts. A permanent succession of villages, bridges, rural chapels, stone crosses, mansions, shrines ... in an environment of mountains and sea, and adorned by a unique vegetation Camino makes this one of the most curious and beautiful. All this without forgetting the passage through the interesting cities of Pontesampaio, Pontevedra, Caldas de Reis, Padrón ..., among others.
