Information on the French Way

Why choose the French Way?

The French Way is the route of the Camino de Santiago par excellence. It is the most internationally recognized itinerary and with the greatest historical tradition, where most of the medieval pilgrimage routes converge. A road that is characterized not only by its contrasts and variety of landscapes, but also by its impressive wealth of monuments. A great social, cultural and religious phenomenon that welcomed over the centuries great kings, princesses, nobles, Templars, knights, poor and devotees from all over Christendom to kneel at the tomb of the Apostle St. James.

If you decide to do the French route, you will enjoy the green mountains of Navarre, the vineyards of La Rioja, the immense oceans of cereal fields of the Castilian steppe and the green valley of El Bierzo to end up immersing yourself in the most authentic and rural Galicia until you reach Santiago de Compostela. A route that will also give you the chance to visit impressive monuments, castles, bridges, as well as important Jacobean cities that were marked forever with the signs of the pilgrim.
