Camino de Santiago Itinerary from Santarem
In Santarém we can enjoy the feeling of an ancient Arab city with its narrow 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.
From Santarém to Golegã - 29km
Once we leave Santarém, we will walk along the banks of the Tagus River in a north-west direction. We will cross small villages and farmlands where we will see many horses and bulls, as this region is famous for their breeding. Although the walk is quite long, it’s relatively easy and completely flat.
From Golegã to Tomar - 13km
We will leave the beautiful city of Golegã in the direction of “Quinta da Cardiga”, one of the most beautiful manor homes in the country. From Quinta da Cardiga we will continue to walk through quiet villages until we reach the historical city of Tomar, where we should visit the Praza da República.
From Tomar to Alvaiázere - 31km
Our route will continue through beautiful forests crossing ancient Roman roads and agricultural paths. This route from Tomar to Alvaiázere is one of the most difficult of the entire Portuguese Way, however it is extremely rewarding.
From Alvaiázere to Ansião - 32km
After leaving Alvaiázere, the trail begins with a steep climb which then proceeds to gradually head downhill. The rest of the day’s walk will take place among hills, olive groves and farmlands until arriving at Ansião.
From Ansião to Condeixa A Nova - 32km
Along this route we will have the opportunity to cross the “Ponte da Cal” bridge that dates back to the seventeenth century. Our route will be surrounded by many trees, in particular eucalyptus, pine and olive trees. These trees will give us a break from the sun throughout the day’s travels. We will walk along this route until we reach Condeixa-a-Nova.
From Condeixa A Nova to Coimbra - 16km
We will continue our route through the beautiful countryside dotted with vineyards, olive groves and forests. We will make our ascent to Alto de Cruz de Mourocos before continuing downhill to Coimbra. Coimbra is a beautiful city, full of energy and with one of the oldest universities in Europe. The University of Coimbra was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2013.
Coimbra is a vibrant city and was formerly the capital of Portugal. It has a well preserved Gothic cathedral and is home to the University of Coimbra dating back to the 13th century, one of the oldest universities in the world. The University of Coimbra was included on the list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 2013. We can enjoy a multitude of cultural events in Coimbra.
