Although there is no specific starting point for the Camino pilgrimage, for the purpose of this website your adventure will start in St Jean Pied de Port in southern France on the Camino Francés. The Camino Francés is the most popular route traveled by pilgrims. Other great Caminos include the Camino Finisterre and the Camino Portugues..
At the time of creating this website I'd already ventured to many beautiful and exciting destinations around the world. My wife and I were looking for a self guided adventure that was a little different and unmatched by anything we'd ever done before, thats when we decided to walk the Camino Francés or Way of St. James.
Like me, you probably have a few questions you'd like answered before you consider taking the journey yourself. Or you might have already made up your mind to walk the the Camino and you're looking for some tips that will help you out along the way. For whatever reason, I hope this website answers most of those common questions.
The Camino Francés or the Way of St. James is traditionally a thousand-year-old Christian pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago De Compostela in northwestern Spain. Crossing the Pyrenees, you'll travel approximately 800kms to Santiago De Compostela in northwest Spain where it's believed that the remains of the apostle St. James are buried in the Cathedral in Santiago De Compostela.
Today the Camino attracts a growing number of modern day pilgrims from a variety of religious and non-religious backgrounds. Aside from a great adventure, its an opportunity to make new friends, get some exercise, sample some great food and wine, see some amazing locations and experience everything northern Spain has to offer. Buen Camino!
