Porto to Santiago
Portugal/Spain. The Way of St. James: Porto to Santiago de Compostela (240 km)
Ideal for beginners, this beautiful pilgrimage route starts in the city of Porto and follows an ancient Roman road, passing through historical villages, vineyards and a national border over the Minho River. As with many of the paths on The St. James Way, you just have to follow the yellow signs (arrows or shells). Tip: As the path goes from south to north, apply sunscreen on the back of your neck, legs and arms. [Photo: Flickr/José Antonio Gil Martínez]
