Camino de Santiago Itinerary from Lisbon
Lisbon is the bright and dazzling capital of Portugal situated in a privileged area, due to it being located where the Tagus River and the Atlantic Ocean meet, meaning that we will have the opportunity to relax by the sea and enjoy Portugal’s ‘City of Light’. Lisbon has many beautiful buildings, cobbled streets and squares. We will be able to visit the city on foot or take one of the many trams that cross the city. It is recommended that in Lisbon you visit the Castle of São Jorge and, if possible, we should make our way over to Belém to see the Jerónimos Monastery and the Belém Tower, both declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
From Lisbon to Santa Iria de Azoia – 19km
Once we leave Lisbon, our journey will meet up with the famous Way of Fatima. This route is quite easy to walk as the trail follows the Tagus River through the Park of Nations. We will continue walking until reaching the small town of Santa Iria de Azoia.
From Santa Iria de Azoia to Vila Franca de Xira – 22km
We will leave Santa Iria de Azoia walking on a trail with a small hill before starting to head downhill once again in Póvoa de Santa Iria. From here we will follow our trail that borders the Tagus River. We will walk until reaching the beautiful city of Vila Franca de Xira, famous for its annual running of the bulls festival.
From Vila Franca de Xira to Azambuja – 20km
As we leave Vila Franca de Xira, we will continue our route heading towards Azambuja where we will cross a region famous for bull runs and horse breeding. We will continue on the path next to the Tagus River, which will stay with us until we arrive at Azambuja. Azambuja is famous for its running of the bulls, which takes place every year in the city streets.
From Azambuja to Santarém – 32km
Once we leave Azambuja, we will continue our journey to Santarém, our final destination for this first section of the Portuguese Way. Santarém is located 360 feet above sea level and, before reaching the small town, you will get the opportunity to enjoy walking among vineyards, orchards, groves and farmlands.
In Santarém we can enjoy the feeling of the ancient Arab city with its narrow and cobbled streets. Here we recommend visiting the Portas de Sol gardens, a beautiful lookout from where we can watch the sunset and take in some incredible views.
