    Are there GPS waypoints for the Primitivo?

    Do any of you know if there are downloadable GPS waypoints for the Primitivo? I will be hiking next May (my first Camino!) over 14 days from Oviedo. I am hoping to use GPS as a backup in case the routing is not clear. Any help will be greatly appreciated... Tim

    Riverside Walk Out Of Lugo Re-routed?

    Just had lunch today with José Manuel @xmsg and he told me that he had heard that the camino Primitivo is being rerouted away from the pleasant riverside path out of Lugo.
