    From Penalba de Santiago to -- Ponferrada or As Medulas?

    There were some posts on this topic last year, but we're getting down to the wire now so I thought I would ask a few more questions on this part of our upcoming camino. Susanna and I will be walking from Bilbao to Ponferrada on the Camino Olvidado. Once in Ponferrada, we will be taking a...

    Anyone else walking the Camino de Invierno from Ponferrada in May?

    I'm walking from Leon to Santiago from May 9th/10th this year and I'm considering leaving the Camino Frances after 4 or 5 days at Ponferrada to follow the Camino de Invierno to Santiago. It sounds like a beautiful route and would be a pleasant alternative to the potentially crowded latter stages...

    Maybe it's official! (Camino de Invierno)

    The trail from El Acebo to Penalba de Santiago

    Advice on starting from El Acebo

    I have been perusing maps here in León, and I have to say that I find the option of El Acebo to Peñalba de Santiago to As Médulas quite daunting. I know that Rebekah did this route, hats off to you, girl, but it looks to me like it is out there in the middle of absolutely nowhere, especially...

    Special Places

    Hola! Br. David's comment in the "Maps & Guides" thread, about off route or split choice "special places", makes me wonder, which ones others found the most interesting to take. Is there a thread elsewhere that looks at this for the Camino Frances? (Couldn't find with search) What have...

    Camino Labyrinths?

    Aside from the fabulous and famous medieval labyrinth in the cathedral of Notre Dame de Chartres in France, and the ancient drawings up above Pontevedra in Galicia, do any of you wise people know of other labyrinths along the Caminos to Santiago? With all these Templar and other hermetic...
