Walk In Caminho de Santiago
The Caminho de Santiago is a message of hope that goes back to the days of the Christianization of the Iberian Peninsula. Throughout the conquest of the lands from the Moors, called "infidels" for professing Islam, the new colonizers got used to giving thanks by returning, with cross and shell, along the paths that once served to advance with the sword. Perhaps in a desperate gesture of repentance, they seek redemption from sins and eternal divine indulgences. Currently, the Camino de Santiago has an incredible demand, with some still searching for such faith in the apostle São Tiago and many for reasons of personal introspection, meeting with themselves or discovering new landscapes and inspirations.

First Note
The Caminho de Santiago of Alentejo and Ribatejo is a conception and implantation of Turismo do Alentejo, Regional Tourism Entity (in Portugal) and consists of three different routes supported by an accurate historical study of the ancestral paths that would have been used by medieval colonists and also pilgrims through the ages. The implantation works consist of the definition of steps for a day, with about 15 km to 25 km, to walk alone or in a group. The western path and the central path are properly marked with regular markings and the border path is only geo-referenced.

Caminho Nascente
West Way
3 to 19 Days - Total of 19 Stages
The Caminho de Santiago West of Alentejo runs through the inhospitable twerritories of the great white field, opened in several places and at various times by mining gold, plate, copper, zinc and lead. Here the testimony of pre-Roman peoples was left, where the still undeciphered "Southwestern writing" is kept. The advance to the Atlantic coast, once almost deserted, makes the lands of the true Order of Santiago appear, with the city with its name associated with the Mozarabic Lord who founded it - Santiago do Cacém (Kassém). Long alluvial plains are the vestiges of the great river deltas of the Rio Sado and the Tagus River and today they produce an intense agricultural activity and are important wildlife ecosystems. Crossing the Tagus River is to continue through the long agricultural fields of the current Ribatejo, where cattle can be seen in the countryside and further north you can begin to feel the new scenarios of the Center of Portugal, where the adventure should continue ...


Caminho Central
Central Way
3 to 19 Days - Total of 19 Stages
The Caminho de Santiago Central of Alentejo passes through the old access routes to the deep interior of the territory. Paths marked by centuries of conquests among peoples and conquests of the rich ore of the interior of the earth that always aroused the need for intense colonization. Throughout the ages, the big cities of what is today the Alentejo have settled here, having defended the many wars waged with neighboring Spain and with other invaders from the east with its walls and castles.
The various journeys of the Camino de Santiago Central pass through the marked relief of the Guadiana River Valley, go through the wide fertile plains of the southern lands, climb mountains that cross the territory, return to the great granite plains where the change of landscape is felt and conquer Serra de São Mamede, the highest point in the entire Alentejo. There is little way to cross the Tagus River and enter the Center of Portugal where the adventure should continue ...
