The map you can see covers what is traditionally the complete route of the French Way from Roncesvallesalthough it is true that you can start on the other side of the border with France by walking the 24 kms that separate St Jean Pied de Port from this small town in Navarre.

How can I interpret this map of the French Way?

This map breaks down the almost 800 kms of the French Route. Divided into 33 stages, it is a route that crosses a large part of the Spanish geography. Along the route you are going to cross 4 Autonomous Communities and 7 Provinces. Visit Navarra, La Rioja, Castilla y León (provinces of Burgos, Palencia and León) and Galicia (provinces of Lugo and A Coruña).

In this adventure you will find a total of 141 towns with servicesSo don’t be afraid! It is a road with a lot of infrastructure, and on average you will pass through a town with services. every 5.6 km.

To take into account!

Perhaps the sections in which you should prepare yourself the most for addressing the lack of services are those that separate the populations of Carrión de Los Condes -Terradillo de los Templarios (up to Calzadilla de la Cueza) , de Estella – Los Arcos (from Villamayor de Monjardín) and of Belorado – San Juan de Ortega (from Villafranca Montes de Oca).

In case you want to start from St Jean Pied du Port you must take into account that in the section from Orisson to Roncesvalles it will also be difficult to find services.
