  1. Where is this?

    Where is this?

    Screen grab from the TV series, The Naked Pilgrim. Presumably this is the point where three of the roads through France join up, but I wonder where this point is, exactly. Can anyone enlighten me?

    Most Affordable Camino??

    Hello! I have been traveling for years pretty minimally in terms of finances and have become very fascinated with the prospect of going on one of the many trails associated with El Camino. I have no problem camping in a tent but as I’ve had less energy this year from burning out from a ton of...

    Efrén Gonzáles' youtube/Camino vlogs.

    Hi all, Just want to do a quick shout out to Efren Gonzales' youtube channel. Other threads on this forum have mentioned his stellar documentation of his 2017 Camino Frances pilgrimage, capturing magnificent shots with his drone. I personally think it's the best self-documented series out there...

    Good weekend hikes on Arles route?

    After walking half the Le Puy-en-Velay route last year, I'm headed to Nice, France, for a month of intensive French language study. Here's my question: are there any two- to four-day stretches of the Arles route (the pilgrim path presumably closest to Nice) that you would recommend walking...

    Best way to Mauléon-Licharre from Florida

    I know, by plane. Now having solved that part of the dilemma, here's the rest: I can fly out of Fort Lauderdale or Miami equally. I just don't know if it's better to fly into Billbao or Paris(Charles DeGaulle) or Bayonne or what. I want to visit my friend's grave in Mauléon and start my Camino...

    Le Post Question

    Hey guys, I would like to send an extra pair of shoes ahead to SJPP from Le Puy. I understand in Spain you can send a package to the town post office addressed to yourself and you have maybe a month to pick it up at the post office. Does the Le Post in France work the same way??? Thanks!

My girlfriend and I were wondering which is the more scenic route and if there would be any major time differences in the routes. We planned on around 3-4 weeks for this, is that...

    Le Puy English Guide/Website

    Hello fellow pilgrims, One thing I noticed before I started my Camino was that there doesn't seem to be much English information online for the Le Puy route in France except on this forum (and some small blogs that are sometimes difficult to find and rely on). I did my best to set up a nice...
