Description

We refer to the Jacobean pilgrimage from Portugal, which presumably already existed in the high medieval period. Bridges, rural chapels, sanctuaries, cruceiros, pazos and historic cities are shelled along a route that begins on the banks of the river Minho, in the city of Tui, to conclude before the tomb of St. James. The Portuguese Way in Galicia is a route of remarkable monumental evidence, with strong cultural realities that go beyond the architectural and museum, to mean a space of privilege walking on horseback among friends.if the pilgrim wishes, it is also available the Portuguese Way from the city of Braga.
