Hi specialists......(william,peter,ivar,javier and all the rest!),

Is there a walking track /route which Ignatius of Loyola has walked.....like a Camino?
I did never heard of it but someone told me that it is in the North of Spain and that it is a 14-days walk.
I walked the North route myself in that part and never encountered anything.
Or did he came from Pamplona?? Javier????

I'm very interested in some answers... :)

Regarding not Ignatius of Loyola but Francis Xavier, there are huge pilgrimages at the beginning of March each year to the castle of Javier, near Sanguesa, from every part of Navarra. These are known as las Javieradas.

Bingo! I googled 'Ignacio pereginacion montserrat' and came up with this web address: http://www.ciao.es/Cueva_de_San_Ignacio_Manresa__Opinion_1198882
There are some small photos on the left side of the page. Click on any of them and you'll see more, including a map of the route Ignatius followed from Loyola to Montserrat, Manresa and Barcelona. (It briefly touches the Camino, from Navarrete to Logrono). Now whether people still make pilgrimages along this way is another matter.

I visited Montserrat a few years back and up above the monastery the hills are incredibly beautiful. If anyone ends up near Barcelona for any reason before/after the Camino, Montserrat is a truly magnificent place to visit. I have a few photos and an account of my day trip here: http://homepages.paradise.net.nz/margar17/Montserrat.htm

(By the way, my writing talks about 'steep stretches". The path I went on was not hard but I was very anaemic at the time as it turned out, so any walking was tiring for me.)
 
the bulk of that route (from Logroño) is simply the Camino del Ebro (supposedly the route used by St James when leaving Spain) and Camino Catalán, but in the other direction. A route between Manresa and Montserrat is being upgraded as part of the Catalan government's Camins Sagrats project.

The first bit though is unusual, as it does not appear to use any established road but go straight over the mountains (which makes me wonder whether that map is correct).

While we are on the subject of other routes I was recently in SW France on holiday.
Returning one night to where I was staying I turned off the N116 direction Perpignan at Ille-sur-Tete. Most of the signs about the town had blue and yellow Camino signs on them and seemed to be indicating a route which was odd because I was heading south east generally away from SdC.
Anyone know which route this is part of? Next big town up the road is Prades but that is opposite direction. Ille-sur-Tete is also a long way south but still east of Toulouse where I understood the southern routes across France headed for.

I just came across this now Paulus as I am researching the Ignatian route for a book, I have walked the route Loyola to Manresa, the classic in the footsteps of ST Ignatius, and it is a great route, not well serviced but interesting and with few people on it.

See http://caminoignaciano.org/en, the website indicates the route, accommodation, navigation guides and sights along the way.

Yours
