ABOUT THE CAMINO FRANCES:
The Camino Frances, also known as French Way, is the most famous route of all those that make up the Camino de Santiago. The different sections that make up the Camino Frances have been featured in numerous documentaries, books and even films. It is the busiest way, approximately 2 out of 3 pilgrims who walk the Camino de Santiago each year choose a section of the Camino Frances.
The official starting point of the Camino Frances is in St Jean Pied de Port although many pilgrims decide to start from other locations along the way, particularly Roncesvalles, Pamplona, Logroño, Burgos, León, O Cebreiro or Sarria.
The most popular starting point of the Camino de Santiago Frances is the town of “Sarria“, in Galicia, 111km away from Santiago.
This last section between Sarria and Santiago is unique as there is a friendly and encouraging atmosphere created among the many pilgrims that choose this route. It is our recommended option for those wanting an introduction to the Camino de Santiago. You can read more information about the Sarria to Santiago section here.
Along the Camino de Santiago Frances we will discover beautiful cities and towns, charming medieval villages and impressive landscapes. Some examples are; the Pyrenees, the famous vineyards of La Rioja, the immense open spaces of la Meseta, the rugged mountains of León and the quiet, rolling hills of rural Galicia prior to our arrival in the city of Santiago de Compostela.
