Description

Camino de Santiago: Camino Francés – This two-volume set of guide and map book makes an indispensable companion to planning and walking the 784km Camino Frances pilgrim route across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela, including an additional section to Finisterre and Muxia on the Atlantic coast. One of the most travelled pilgrimage routes, the Camino Frances draws walkers of all abilities. The guide describes the route in 36 stages and lists 500 pilgrim lodgings along the camino, with a description of facilities available at each.

Sample itineraries and a stage planning table allow the route to be customised to suit the reader. The accompanying map book is ideal for day-to-day use, with maps for the entire route showing the locations of accommodation and services, as well as over 100 useful town and village maps. The epic 1000-year-old Camino Frances begins at St-Jean-Pied-de Port on the French border and heads west across the Pyrenean mountains, fertile valleys and vast plains of northern Spain to the tomb of St James the Apostle in UNESCO World Heritage site Santiago de Compostela.

Passing some of Spain’s most important artistic and architectural treasures, like the majestic cathedrals of Burgos and Leon, and the famous bull-running Basque city of Pamplona, the camino promises both amazing sights and friendships forged in the daily routine of shared adventure.
