Camino Portuguese Pilgrimage Patch - Our beautiful Camino Portuguese Pilgrimage Patch is 100% Embroidery and bears the Yellow Scalloped Shell with the Blood Red Cross of the Order of Santiago. The Camino Portuguese Pilgrimage Route is the second most traveled route. This Ancient Symbol is often found marking the Pilgrimage Trail Route. The Scallop Shell depicted on our patches are often found washes up by the ocean’s wave on the Atlantic shores in Galicia, Spain and has long been the symbol of God’s hand guiding the pilgrims to Camino de Santiago Compostela. Over the centuries the Scallop Shell has taken on mythical, metaphorical and practical meanings and acts as a metaphor for the pilgrimage. The grooves in the shell come together at a single point representing the various routes pilgrims traveled eventually arriving at a single destination, “The Tomb of Saint James”, located within the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. Our patch has been left clean without any advertising or wording to preserved the spiritual essence of traveling The Way of Saint James. Many of our customers who walk “The Way” also purchase our beautiful 3 x 5 inch American Flag Patches and a dozen or more Camino Pilgrimage Patches for their pilgrimage to share with those they become friends with along “The Way” during their pilgrimage experience. I have been told our patches are very popular in Europe with those walking the Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage and have become collector items. For those who are interested in the spiritual essence and beauty of walking "The Way" we would like to suggest the movie, "The Way" Staring Martin Sheen and produced by Emilio Estevez honoring the pilgrimage.

"Camino Portuguese" or the "Portuguese Way" is a fantastic route for pilgrims looking for a more rural experience or for those seeking a less physical demanding trekk on their pilgrimage to Camino de Santiago. The Camino Portuguese is very flat and rural where you will walk past lush forests, terraced fields, cropland and vineyards gently winding through peaceful sleep villages. The Camino Portuguese is one of Europe's oldest routes and is actually a direct descendent of the major Roman roads that formed the backbone of the Roman Empire. It is claimed that the Camino Portuguese offers the richest cultural and architectural heritage of all the Camino's. The Camino Portuguese starts in Lisbon, Portugal’s dazzling capital and home of several UNESCO sites, and takes pilgrims through Urban Lisbon's and continues along stunning countryside, villages and towns such as Santarém, one of the last Moorish bastions in Portugal; Coimbra, famous for its UNESCO 13th century university; and gorgeous Porto with its colorful riverfront and the home of Port Wine. The Camino Portuguese Route starts in Lisbon at the Cathedral (Sé) and continues northward paralleling the Tejo/Tajo River until Golega. The route continues northwest connecting Coibra, Agueda, Ansiao, Oliveire de Azemeis, Sao Joao da Madeira to Porto continuing north crossing the Lima and Minho Rivers entering Spain. The route continues into northern Spain crossing the Ulla River at Padron and ends at Santiago de Compostela, Spain some 610km all in all.

The Camino Portuguese was used by Queen Isabel of Portugal in the 13th Century to make at least one pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. The route crosses some of the most beautiful parts of North Portugal and South Galicia (Spain) and has some of the best sandy beaches in the World with clear blue waters at Sanxenxo, Cies Islands and Baiona, where Christopher Columbus arrived with the good news of the discovery of America. The final leg of the Camino Portuguese is known as the Camino Romantico beginning at Tui, Spain.

Camino Romantico (Portuguese Way) - Is the last 115km of the Camino Portuguese beginning at Tui and continues connecting O Porrino, Arcade, Ponteveda, Caldas de Reis, Pardon ending in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

Camino Romantico (French Way) - Is the last 114km of the Camino Francis beginning in Sarria where the pilgrimage continues to Portomarin, Palas de Rei, Melide, Arzula, Rua ending in Santiago de Compostela in Spain. If you are looking for a unique, romantic and meaningful holiday or honeymoon, the Camino Romantico is for you.
