Welcome to an English language website for the Camino Frances or French Route of the Camino Frances (Way of St. James). This is the main camino de santiago pilgrimage route in Spain going from St Jean Pied Du Port in the French side of the pyrennees to Santiago De Compostella in Galicia. The other is the Via De La Plata going from Seville in the south of Spain via Astorga in the north.
Some of the contents of this site come from my first camino website and it has now been updated and modernised for 2019.
I have walked most parts of this route more than once. I walked the section from St Jean to Burgos most recently in March 2004. My partner and I have walked the section from Burgos to Sarria in 2003 and I walked the whole camino frances in 2000.
The comments in the place descriptions below are my own personal and subjective impressions of the places I visited. They reflect my own likes and dislikes and they should be treated accordingly when read.
