graphics of changes in elevation

Sometime back, someone mentioned printing out "graphics" of the elevation changes to take along with them. The site was http://www.compostelle.fr and I managed to print out only the first page. With my great command of the French language, I can't even find the graphic chart on the site anymore. I assume since the one page I have shows sections 1-17, there must be a page 2, if not three since there are 34 sections. It looks pretty good and I'd like to find the rest. Does anyone have any idea of what I'm talking about?

I tried the link and it works OK. Click on the flashing shell.
Then click on the Union Jack to get English.
Then click on Stages
Then on "Stages of profiles of Camino Frances"
To view the pages click on VOIR
Once in this page you can save the 2 pages on your PC to print out.

You will find a huge collection of maps on this website - including graphic maps of the vairous routes. This is also the best site for info on travelling in Spain.

I've always found the 'Camino Planner' from


extremely useful. You can get quite detailed elevation profiles for the whole walk or for just whichever bits you specify. When I planned our walk through France I used this site to judge how far we might manage each day.

I also very much enjoyed reading the author's guide to the Le Puy route in Spanish and getting the Spanish take on what he thinks about the French setup (he likes the way they sign the route but he is really surprised that the French don't make more of an effort to understand him when he tries to communicate). And there are some lovely photos:
