The routes of the Camino de Santiago

The Way of St. James is formed by a set of routes that start from different places and have in common a single goal, to reach Santiago de Compostela through all its stages.

Each route of the Camino de Santiago is divided into a succession of stages, which are the daily kilometres to be covered. The stages connect villages, towns and cities, where you will have all the necessary services to rest and recover your strength (accommodation, restaurants, supermarkets, laundries, etc.). 20 and 30 km, perfect to start walking first thing in the morning and reach your destination by midday.

Remember that it is not necessary to walk the entire Camino or follow the stages already established for each route to the letter. You can choose any intermediate point and do the number of stages or kilometres you want depending on the days you have available and your physical capacity.

Consult in detail the history, itinerary, towns, stages, hostels and recommendations of each route of the Camino de Santiago.
