(2003) Francés, (2014) Francés, (2016) Portugués , (2016) Aragonés, (2018) del Norte to Primitivo,
I found a postcard that I bought in 2003 on my first camino, the Francés. The postcard shows northern Spain and a route marked as the "Camino de Santiago". It starts in Candanchú, then San Juan de la Peña, Javier, Burgos, León, Astorga, Ponferrada, Lugo, Santiago. I recognise that Candanchú is on the Aragonés, and San Juan de la Peña is a diversion from that route between Jaca and Puente la Reina de Jaca. But I've walked the Francés three times and never gone from Ponferrada to Lugo. From Lugo it's the Primitivo to Santiago. Does the route from Ponferrada to Lugo have a name?

I think you meant from O Cebreiro - Pedrafita to Lugo.
I don't think there is a marked Camino there. The valleys are "occupied" by the highway A6 and must not be easy to perform a camino.

Aragonés, the Spanish end starts in Somport, San Juan de la Peña and Javier are actually detours. Joins Frances near Eunate. Beautiful late summer Camino

Thanks to all who replied. Thanks especially to Martyduc for giving me a name. The cities/towns I mentioned are the only ones identified on the postcard. I walked from Lescar in 2018, and regret missing San Juan dlP. Google Maps indicates that you can walk from Ponferrada to Lugo, passing through Pedrafita (do Cebreiro) rather than O Cebreiro.
