Hello, I would very much like to receive advice and advice to receive the Barcelona - Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route. I am still unsure which route I want to walk. I want to start in August 2021.

Hi and welcome here.

Do take a look in these threads (subforum ) for more info.


Also the website gronze is a good source of information.


I'm sure some forummembers who walked this route will be more than happy to share their experiences with you.

2002, Toulouse/Aragon 2005, Cami S Jaume/Aragon 2007/9, Mont Saint Michel/Norte/Vadiniense 2011, Norte/Primitivo 2013, Norte/Primitivo 2014. Norte 2015, Cami S Jaume/Castellano-Aragonese 2016
I've done two and a half of the ones available-- the Catalan through Huesca which hooks on to the Aragonese near Jaca and then the Francese at Puente la Reina; the Catalan up the Ebro to Gallur (one can continue up the Ebro to Logroño), and the Castellano Aragonese from Gallur to Sto Domingo de Silos, and then up to Burgos and the Francese. You have much reading to do but I would remind you that walking in this part of Spain in August will be very warm indeed, and you will need to figure water into your calculations. I did the Catalan through Huesca in September and found it necessary to begin walking by dawn each day, as the afternoons would be too much-- but I did get to see some splendid sunrises.

The main complication on this route is finding which way to get out of Barcelona, as there is a bewildering array of possibilities.

The only one I've walked personally is on tarmac up to Valldoreix (many years ago), but the one I'd advise would be from the Sagrada Familia and then up through the nature reserve up to Sant Cugat ; then up from there by whichever way to Montserrat. (used to live in Valldoreix and went to school in Sant Cugat, and the latter is a far more pleasant place)

After that, there's only one route 'til Tàrrega -- then it's a choice between the route via Lleida or the one via Huesca.

The latter is more mountainous but also more travelled Camino-wise, and so I think has easier lodging. The other shares its route with the Camino Ignaciano, and so may have more pilgrims overall, though there is a lengthy "dry" stretch after Lleida (which I'll have to face very soon) of pretty much nothing at all. But it is physically a lot easier than the other.

Best source for lodging info, at least between Montserrat and Tàrrega is : https://caminoignaciano.org/en/lodging/
