Santiago de Compostela to Lisbon in 12 days

An itinerary from Santiago de Compostela to Lisbon, through Porto, Obidos and Cabo da Roca.

In a nutshell: a lot of Atlantic Ocean, and a lot of wind.


Day 1 – Arrival in Santiago de Compostela, checked-in at one of the many guesthouses, explored town walking around.

Day 2 – Visited Santiago on foot.

DAY 3 – Day-trip to Finisterre by bus.

Day 4 – Bus to Porto (5 hours), and check-in at hotel 6Only Guest House.

DAY 5 – Explored Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia on foot.

DAY 6 – Organised day-trip to Douro Valley to taste Porto.

Day 7 – Rented a car and drove 5 hours to Cabo da Roca, stopping by Obidos for lunch. Stayed at apartment in Colares.

DAY 8 – Around Cabo da Roca’s lighthouse and the nearby beaches.

DAY 9 – Day-trip to Sintra visiting the Pena Palace and the park. Evening in Cascais.

Day 10 – Drove to Lisbon by car (1 hour), returned car rental and checked-in at Airbnb flat in Alfama.

Day 11 – Chilled out in Lisbon/Alfama.

Day 12 – Way back.


1.200 euro per person sharing accommodation, excluding flights. You can make it cheaper considering we travelled in mid August with high season prices, and we chose mid-range rooms from 70 to 100 euro per night.


From Santiago we went to Finisterre, and Porto, by bus. We got tickets for Finisterre at Santiago bus station, the ones to Porto online. In Porto we rented a car to get to Lisbon, where we returned the car and moved around by public transports/taxi.


You could also start directly from Porto, and give two extra nights to Lisbon.
