Hi Everyone!

I am so interested in this pilgrimage, and am hoping to do it at some point in my life. I just heard about it a few months ago and find it fascinating. I was in Spain a few weeks ago and was determined to find a few waymarkers and I did! I can't tell you how excited I was. I am wondering if anyone knows of a map that gives great detail on it. I have found a few maps, but they really don't show every city that the camino goes thru. I stayed in a place called Elizondo, Spain and I saw they markers near there.....

Good luck to all the walkers. I hope to join you at some point....

Peter, thank you for the information. So, I guess, I'm a bit confused. Are there different routes within the different caminos? Is the Bayonne-Pamplona route not in the camino frances? Which one is it in?

Thank you for any insight you can give me.

I truly love this website. I can't believe how much information is out there!!!

I am reading a really great book right now about the pilgrimage. I'm sorry to see that the Basques/Navarrese in medieval times caused trouble to people on their way thru.....you see I'm of this descent. So sad.

"Camino Frances" is generally applied to the main road across N Spain, though in reality, as Camino Frances just means 'Road from France' or 'Road used by French/Frankish people', any of the roads over the Pyrenees is a 'Camino Frances'. Officially, the modern Camino Frances starts in Puente la Reina, where the Roncesvalles (Navarre) and Somport (Aragon) routes combine, but the term's often used for much of the route through Navarre as well. There were/are numerous side-roads that join this Camino, for example, if you start in/go via Bayonne, you could use the route to St Jean Pied de Port, or the route via the Baztan valley direct to Pamplona, or the tunnel route to Sto Domingo or Burgos, or . . .

the Basque country was apparently (in)famous for bandits, but the kings of Navarre did much to bring them under control, so not all the Basques were baddies. :)
