ESIM card for Spain / Data usage

Past OR future Camino
I would like to find out what e-sim cards or SIM cards you recommend for the journey and how much data would be sufficient for camino Primitivo trip. Any advice?

Frances, Primitivo, Fisterre and Ingles
Just completed the Primitvo, Fisterre and Ingles. Orange worked well for me.
Updated comment - I bought (in Spain) a Tourista SIM for 20 euro. Can't recall how much data, but at least 20 gb, and the card can be 'topped up'. I think that Vodafone or Movistar would work equally well.
2021 Camino Guides

I was seeing orange holiday cards 60g for 15 days … do you remember which data plan you purchased from them?
In general, don't buy the holiday or tourist SIM cards. Some of them can't be topped up and many won't work in other countries.

A standard SIM with data, call and text built in is much more flexible and easy to use when on a longer Camino.

If you are only going for a week or two and will stay in the same county then consider the tourist SIM cards because that is what they are designed for.

Frances 2021
I also used Orange on the first part of the Norte and most of the Frances. Got the one month contract that could be refilled. About 20 euros and way more data than I needed. I ended up having to refill at the end of 30 days even though I had a lot of data left. I didn't use anywhere near the amount of data I bought, but that's just my experience.
