    As Laurie mentioned I walked the Salvador last June in 4 days (64 year old woman). I thought it quite doable but many may not agree with me😂. That first day to Pola de Gordon is long but IMHO not difficult. Leave early to beat the heat and follow...

    Loved Sanblismo. I forget the proprietor’s name, but the facility is very good - dinner and atmosphere also made for a pleasant evening

    I am currently on the Primitivo, 67, average fitness and have just finished the day involving the Hospitales route from Samblissimo to Berduceco. I was a bit worried about the Primitivo from various forum posts, but have honestly found it...

    Totally agree that a GPS is essential for this camino. There are too many times when you are out in remote mountain areas. The marking is generally very good, but it would be, IMHO, irresponsible to go without GPS unless you are a whiz with a...
