Walk from Lisbon to Coimbra along the first stage of the more spiritually connected Camino Portugués. The Portuguese Road, or Camino Portugués, is considered by many as the most spiritually connected pilgrimage route. Following the path St James' body took to its resting place at the site of Santiago de Compostela in Spain, the quieter Portuguese path offers a wealth of history and delightful landscapes to discover. This section of the route, the first of four stages on our self-guided walking along the Portuguese Camino, begins in the capital city of Lisbon, situated on the Tagus River, from where you begin your walk out through fertile floodplains and gently undulating terrain, staying in small hotels with local character each evening. Along the walk you will explore the Templar town of Tomar, the Roman ruins of Conimbriga and journey on until you reach the World Heritage listed Coimbra, Portugal's early medieval capital best known for its university founded in 1290.
