Recently bought 3 guide books..Piemonts, Andalucian Coast to Coast and Chemin D'Arles.
Wanted to have a separate heading for Coast to Coast but there seems to be no option to add a separate heading under Routes in Spain..I realise it is not a pilgrimage route as such but thought members might be interested.
I have walked from Briancon to Pamplona years ago..great but lots of ups and downs.I'm using 2 French books..Lepere editions and Cicerone for Coast to Coast.

Lourdes is a major Catholic destination, so if you consider that you are walking TO there and then AWAY from there, it’s a genuine pilgrimage! Definitely stay at the pilgrims’ hostel there (you can even do two days if you are visiting the shrine) - one of the best in my 70 days of Camino walking.

SJPdP to Bayonne is simply beautiful, though you’ll likely need to book a hotel at parts due to the lack of pilgrim gites.

We walked a part of the Voie de Piemont in September 2019. Although we used the LePere book, later I saw the one by FFRP - which I'd recommend. (Fédération Française de la Randonnée Pédestre) They are the folks who maintain the GR routes in France. Both books are in French; I didn't find any English ones. There are also separate lists of accommodations available from tourist offices or some abbeys.

Walked that, too! Worth the effort as the Basque countryside is stunning and generally devoid of pilgrims.

Being devoid of pilgrims is an IMMENSE attraction!. Rough plan is to veer right at SJPDP along the Voie Nive then head back to UK to relax before heading to Oz.
