El Camino de Santiago de Compostela, the ancient Christian pilgrimage route has been travelled for over a thousand years to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, where, legend has it, the bones of St James are buried. This guide follows the most popular route, starting at St Jean-Pied-de-Port in south-west France and heading all the way westwards across northern Spain for 800km to finish at Cape Finisterre on the Atlantic coast.
Fully updated with 100% new text maps and photography, this single volume walking guide offers detailed step-by-step route directions, maps and gradient profiles, accompanied by a history of the route and details of the key sights to see. Separate chapters describe the main cities along the way such as Pamplona, and there are full details of almost 500 hostels and resting points along the entire route.
