Publisher Comments:

Updated maps and photos highlight this latest edition of the comprehensive guidebook to the Camino Portugués, with all the information needed by modern pilgrims wishing to walk the unique route to Santiago that was used by Queen Isabel of Portugal. Overview route planners, plus daily stage maps and detailed town plans, help sojourners with as much advance preparation as needed. The redone maps feature contour guides to help distinguish the terrain that will be crossed each day, while full information on pilgrim hostels and other accommodations allow travelers to plot adequate nightly stopping points. All reference information is accompanied by helpful spiritual guidelines to support the seeker's inner journey as well as the outer pilgrimage. For travelers who wish to walk the coast of Portugal, this volume has been expanded to cover the entire pilgrimage from Lisbon to Porto to Santiago.

This compact guide to the Camino Portuges (the route from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela) is a gem. I had been considering taking the plunge and walking at least part of the way next year. I even convinced my wife it was a good idea. I bought this guide to help plan the trip and learn more about what we were getting ourselves into. Brierley writes about the inner and outer journey and the bit of mystery that surrounds each day on the trail. These glimpses into the gut meaning that lies under the hiking boots is every bit as important as the route markers and lodging options. And these, Brierley brings to life with great detail, excellent maps, photos and descriptions abound. I cannot say too many good things about this book.
