This trip begins with a day in Lisbon followed by two nights in Fátima. We will then spend five days walking roughly 100 kilometers along the Portuguese Way of Saint James. From the coastal city of Vigo, we’ll pass through the beautiful countryside of Galicia until we arrive in the city of Saint James: Santiago de Compostela.

Following our time in Compostela we’re off to Porto, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, for a day of sightseeing and a night before returning home.

Trip Overview

This pilgrimage is arranged in four parts: Lisbon and Fatima (two nights), the Camino (five days walking and five nights), Santiago de Compostela (two nights) and Porto (one night).

Catholic Portugal

Upon arrival in Lisbon we’ll briefly visit the Portuguese capital before departing for Fátima where we will spend two nights. In Fátima we will be immersed in the serene beauty and mystery of Our Lady’s apparitions, all the while preparing our hearts and souls for the Camino.

The Caminho Português

From Fátima we’ll depart for Vigo, Spain. On the way there we will stop at the sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte, one of Portugal’s most beautiful and sacred pilgrimage sites. After one night in Vigo our Camino begins.

Santiago de Compostela

After five days of walking nearly 100 kilometers along the Camino we will arrive in Santiago de Compostela, the resting place of Saint James the Greater. Here we will spend two nights exploring this beautiful city.


Our pilgrimage comes to an end in Porto, Portugal. The beauty of Porto is paralleled by few places in the world. Here we will spend one day and one night, exploring the Catholic history and culture here before departing for the USA from Porto airport.
