Altitude:

Lisbon is the largest city along the Camino Portugués and only a few others compare to its size and sprawl and splendor. The city itself is full of award winning hostels and countless hotels for you to spend your first night in. By European standards, it is a small capital and is easy to get...

History: 

Lissabon ist seit der Zeit der Phönizier ein bevölkerter Hafen, aber die Römer hatten den größten Einfluss. Das Gebiet wurde in die römische Region Lusitania eingegliedert, die nach der Niederlage Hannibals den gesamten Südwesten der Iberischen Halbinsel bedeckte. Das Straßennetz, das es...

Notice: 

Bevor Sie losgehen, sollten auf alle Fälle Ihren Pilgerausweis holen, falls Sie das noch nicht getan haben. Er ist in der Basílica dos Mártires und der Kathedrale erhältlich. Dieses gefaltete Credencial ist Ihr Pass zum Camino und wird wahrscheinlich zu einem wertvollen...

Der Heilige Antonius von Padua wird am 13. Juni mit Umzügen in den Straßen gefeiert.

The Road: 

Der Weg von der Kathedrale ist einfach und gut markiert, der erste Pfeil befindet sich rechts unten an der Fassade. Zwischen hier und dem Parque das Nações passieren Sie einige Sehenswürdigkeiten, darunter das Museu Nacional do Azulejo. Man könnte sich aber auch einem...

Also known as Oriente, and home to Lisbon’s bus and rail stations, as well as the furthest metro stop near the camino.

As the name suggests, it is a large park and was the site of the 1998 Lisbon Expo. It remains a popular spot for locals and makes for the first green space to rest in...

The Road: 

Gut markiert dreht der Camino bei Sacavém landeinwärts, aber es gibt nicht viel zu sehen. Der Park endet auf einem Parkplatz und folgt einem breiten Jogging-Weg entlang des Kanals. Sie folgen diesem Kanal landeinwärts, um einen stark bebauten Hügel herum entlang des Rio Trancao,...

Well marked though remarkably difficult on the eyes, the camino turns inland at Sacavém (itself nothing more than an extension of Lisbon). The park ends in a disused parking lot (except for when the Circus is in town) and follows a wide joggers path along the canal.

You will follow this...

The camino passes by the edge of Granja (on your left) without actually going in. You will know it for the industrial naves on your right-hand side.

Altitude:

Notice: 

The camino, before entering Póvoa de Santa Iria, turns right and heads directly towards a tunnel that passes under the A1. DO NOT go through that tunnel. Instead, turn left and continue another 700m before turning right into a second tunnel. See caution symbol on the map above.

Póvoa de Santa Iria is a large town that the camino tries to unsuccessfully to avoid. There are services here but try to keep to the ones along the camino as the arrows are difficult enough to find without wandering off track.

The Road: 

Nach dem Unterqueren der A1 führt eine asphaltierte Straße über 2 kleinere Kreisverkehre, bevor Sie zu einem großen bepflanzten Kreisverkehr gelangen. 

Halten Sie sich rechts und nehmen Sie die zweite Ausfahrt, die Sie vorübergehend in Richtung Lissabon bringt.

NOTE: A new pedestrian path in Alhandra has replaced the camino proper, but some arrows and signs remain along the N1. These should be ignored in favor of the river path.

The pedestrian path keeps along the River Tejo into Vila Franca de Xira. The bright yellow bull ring tells you that you have arrived. Unless you need to enter the town, keep along the path. Otherwise, yellow arrows at the bull ring will guide you into and then back out of town to rejoin the path...

The arrival to Carragado is marked by the train station. Shortly after the camino turns left (before crossing the river). Follow the river 1km and then cross it via the new bridge.

From the bridge, it is 3.5km along a straight road to Vila Nova de Rainha.

No accommodation, but a pair of mini markets, a bar, a restaurant, and a panaderia.

The Road: 

Der Camino durch den Ort ist kurz und bald sind Sie wieder auf der Nationalstraße N3.

Nach Azambuja geht es entlang der Straße. Denken Sie daran, auf der linken Straßenseite zu bleiben.

Azambuja is a medium sized town with all the necessary services. See the note on Parque das Nações for information about how to take the train directly to the station here.

Die Stadt zu verlassen, bedeutet einen weiteren Bahnübergang. Die Pfeile führen Sie zum Bahnhof, und eine erhöhte Fußgängerbrücke (blau gestrichen) bringt Sie über die Gleise und auf das ersten Stück ländlichen Weges seit einiger Zeit. Sie werden fast den ganzen Weg nach Santarém in...

Omnias is just beyond the small Santarém airstrip. There is a restaurant and little else, though Santarém is close enough now.

Turn Left to cross the tracks by way of a bridge.

The climb ahead is a welcome change from so much flatness. Santarém is at the top.

Altitude: 
115

Santarém boasts an incredible number of Gothic churches, no small feat given that it has been struck by multiple earthquakes and a Napoleonic invasion. The best architectural examples (not all Gothic) are the Sé Catedral, the Convento de São Francisco, the Igreja do...

History: 

Santarém, the Capital of the Portuguese Gothic, has been a favored city by rulers since Julius Caesar set up a military camp here in 61 AD. 

São José is celebrated on the 19th of March.

The Road: 

The exit to town can be difficult to find via arrows and it is best to make your way to the Porta do Sol gardens that are part of the old Moorish castle.

As you approach the gardens, there is a small flight of steps on your left-hand side. Turn down those to a small square and the...
