I was told by a person who works with trails in Catalunia that GR 1 was going to become a branch of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. GR 1 begins near L'Escala, well above Barcelona on the Mediterranean coast, and proceeds due west. I don't see how it could tie into the other trails that feed toward Santiago. The only other trails from Catalunia are below Barcelona. I'll be hiking there in the next few weeks and would be very interested to know... How do I find out if GR 1 is slated to become recognized as a feeder trail? Thank you, Vita

Peter - I was just looking at a graphic map in the Chemin du Piemont pyreneen guide book. It is called "Itineraires Pedestres du Piemont Pyreneen." (Are these really all pedestrian routes?)
It shows a number of routes over the Pyrenees including one from Narbonne, south to Perpignan which then branches three ways - southeast to Elne and over the Col du Banyuis - southwest to Le Boulou and crosses at Col du Perthus: and a more westerly route from Perpignan to Prades and then over the Pyrenees (no pass mentioned.)
The map shows at least nine other southerly routes that branch off the Chemin du Piemont and cross at various Cols and Ports.
I tried a to download a larger picture here but it was too big so am trying this one.

they're the main passes, and most of them have some sort of walking route, yes.

that's over the Cerdanya: Bourg Madame, Puigcerda. It's more a plateau than an actual pass. You can go up there on the little yellow train from Perpignan. http://www.anglophone-direct.com/Le-petit-train-jaune
The Catalan government plans to link that with Montserrat in phase 2 of their project.
