Grijo to Porto

Walking Day 16: 19 km, 4.5 hrs

The transfer back to the Grijo Monastery went without a hitch.

The 15 km from Grijó to Vila Nova da Goia was mostly uninspiring. That all changed when we caught sight of Porto across the Douro River. The last few kilometers of the walk into Porto is absolutely stunning.

After crossing the upper level of the Eiffel-inspired Ponte Luis I bridge, we headed to the Cathedral Se for our passo stamps.

We spent the late afternoon and evening on Rua Santa Catarina near the Bolhao Market. Both the window shopping and people watching were very entertaining.
