John Brierley Camino Frances Guide
This guide is one of the ones that has been around for over 15 years. Updated yearly. Please read the reviews.


Like to run, bike and hike. 1st Camino was a rare event that combined a spiritual element with my love of outdoors and being active. People along the way, pilgrims and hosts, were (almost) universally supportive and friendly and I made several new friends. This was an epic adventure. Managed to traipse from Lisboa to Santiago on a second journey (Aug/Sept 2018) in a brutal 40+C heat wave, with a wander over to Fatima on the way to Coimbra. Lovely trek but far fewer pilgrims than on CF.
