Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) - Main page
This is our portal page to the Camino de Santiago, or Way of Saint James' pilgrimage, that runs on numerous routes through Spain, France and Portugal to its final destination of Santiago de Compostela cathedral.
This section comprises over 100 pages of information about the Camino de Santiago, the bulk of which will take you along the famous French Way on a stage by stage basis.
Each of these 33 separate stages has its own page(s), all linked to from the sectional index in the right hand column and this 40,000 word section is the biggest single addition to Galicia Guide since 2007.
The French Way commences at Saint Jean Pied-de-Port in France and reaches its conclusion at the famed Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, said to be the final resting place of the apostle St. James. Along this journey any modern day pilgrim will visit a host of interesting, historical and note-worthy points that have significance from a cultural, religious and sightseeing perspective. All are described in our French Way, stage by stage, Camino guide.
