JACOBEAN ROUTE FROM BRAGA (PORTUGAL) TO SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA
Camino Miñoto Ribeiro Association
We are a non-profit association, founded in 2014, whose objective is to restore, promote and achieve the recognition of Camino Miñoto Ribeiro as the official Jacobean route to Santiago de Compostela.
The historical heritage we encounter along the way is astonishing: Roman roads with ancient pavement, mediaeval trails, monasteries, old hospitals, churches, wine cellars, and historical town and villages.
Incredibly rich all year round and at any stage of the route, the nature is overwhelming with an amazing variety of flora and fauna.
Along the way there are numerous hot springs, used by pilgrims on their way to the town of Santiago, the apostle, in the past especially those who suffered from leprosy.
The road to Santiago has for centuries been a transport route for the wine from Ribeiro. The earliest mentions come as far back as the 12th century.
