We have already reached the halfway point of the summer of this exceptional Holy Year of Mercy and we want to compile statistical data of all the pilgrims, to know what means have been used and which route to Santiago is the most used by all pilgrims. We have obtained the statistics of the Camino de Santiago of the month of July of the last 6 years, contemplating the last two Holy Years, that of the year 2010 and that of this exceptional year 2016.

While 5 years ago the differences were more abrupt: Men 55,66% and Women 44,34%.
