I have just been doing some research on CSJ Pilgrimage as I have two months off next year. Unfortunately its Jan and Feb so if anyone has experience or information regarding weather and accommodation on the Vía de la Plata at that time of year will be most grateful.

Buen Camino

The Friends of Santiago Association is extremely active and willing to extend practical help and advice. They recently compiled and published a wonderful Silver Way guide full of practical information, photographs, maps,etc. The guide may be obtained, free of charge, by requesting it directly from the Seville Friends.
The Association's address is: ASOCIACION DE AMIGOS DE SANTIAGO EN SEVILLA, Calle Real de la Carreteria 25, atico, Sevilla, Spain.

a) your name,
b) address,
c) age,
d) purpose of the pilgrimage,
