Follow in the footsteps of Celts and Christians on an ancient pilgrimage route across northern Spain.
Walking the Camino de Santiago leads you along the camino francés from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the foothills of the French Pyrenees to the cathedral city of Santiago de Compostela and on to Finisterre, smoothing your way with step-by-step instructions, detailed sketch maps and profile charts.
Walking the Camino de Santiago lets you into Spain's cultural and culinary secrets, includes a detailed, illustrated wildlife section, and gives you all the practical information you need for a hassle-free pilgrimage.
This third edition was entirely re-researched, our authors re-walked the entire route and checked out every albergue (pilgrim hostel) along the way. We have added new features, such as more easy to use symbols and an expanded accommodation section, and kept old favourites such as information on wildlife, food and culture.
