The Portuguese Way

The Portuguese Way, as its name suggests,  It is a route that crosses almost all of Portugal from South to North.  From the 12th century to the present day,  The pilgrimage routes departed from the neighboring country from such important population centers as:  Lisbon, Santarem, Coimbra, Porto, Braga ...,  and the main door of  access to Galicia was and still is the ancient city of Tui.  And it is precisely  in this border town where we have located the beginning of this journey.
