Hola,

Many of the visitors to this site are planning their pilgrimage to Santiago, but a few have already done the pilgrimage maybe even several times.

One of the good ways to prepare is of course the guidebooks. Have any of you any favorites? I did a search on Amazon and found close to 400 books on a search for "Santiago de Compostela" so there is quite a few to choose from.

Take a look at what Amazon.com has to offer here:

A merry Christmas from Santiago de Compostela,

Ivar

Guide Book Recommendations

Like JLK the one I would not go without is the CSJ guide but here are a couple of others worth having and in the case of John Brierly or the maps from the Lozano maybe even taking with you.
BRIERLY, John. A Pilgrims Guide to the Camino Frances - Findhorn Press 2003 - covering St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela - A recently written compact guide with maps, photos and information.
BRAVO LOZANO, Millan. A practical guide for pilgrims: the road to Santiago. - León: Editorial Everest SA, 5th ed. 1998. - 261 pp. with maps in a separate waterproof pocket. For reading before or after the camino though maybe take the maps with you.
