NOW WITH THE COASTAL ROUTE!
No Login Necessary.
Re-written for the 2017 season, making note of changes to the camino made within the last 12 months (there are quite a few).
The Camino Portugues App builds off of the success of the other Wise Pilgrim Guides, which are now in their 5th season... the original camino app.
This guide covers the route from Lisbon to Porto, and from Porto to Santiago de Compostela along the Central and Coastal Ways.
A full directory of Albergues, camping, hotels, pensions, paradors, and cases rurales. With special attention to those that can be booked online.
No more "stage anxiety" or guide created bottlenecks.
Every location is geo-coded. Devices with GPS enabled will display actual distance from every point (albergue, church, city, etc.) within the app. Devices without GPS will instead show measured distances between points.
Photos of albergues, monuments and other points of interest along the way. Currently 900+ images and growing.
If you have a data connection, or are connected to wifi, you can view the locations of every point on a map. Unfortunately, this feature is unavailable without a connection.
Scrollable Elevation Map:
This one is hard to show with just a screenshot, but the elevation that appears at the top of every city page scrolls East to West. One complete elevation, from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago, uninterrupted by page folds.
Albergue closed early for the season? Have a restaurant that you want to share, or perhaps one to warn others about? Every location in the app gives you the opportunity to leave a comment and to read the comments left by others. No registration necessary.
Updated albergue information and route track.

Thank you, Thank you, Muito Obrigado, Muchísimas gracias, for this awesome APP and for the online MAP and for your great excellent efforts :D I can't express all the Grateful I am for using this app. God bless you and all the best luck.

Buen Camino hermano! Un abrazo muy grande :D
(RESOLVED) App won’t open on my new iPhone
Downloaded Apr 27, 2018. When I tried to open it on my iPhone X it immediately closes. I read another review saying to open it 3-4 times in a row. After that it opened and now it works.
This needs to be fixed. Also no way to contact the developer except through this review. That’s why it gets 4 stars.
Now that it is working, it has lots of good information I will be using on my Camino in May.
No contact info!
Type is unnecessarily too small!!
I am trying to use it right now on the Camino Portuguese central route and it is both out of date and missing some critical information.
I realize putting an app together is not an easy task, but this paid one isn’t practical to actually use on the Camino.
There are some major errors in the data and Wise Pilgrim does not offer a way to contact them about it. Overall, it’s not worth getting it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
