Hi everybody, just would like to know if "El Camino Inglés" is the same route that the Spanish call Sanabrés (or Mozárabe)? And why is it called "Inglés" in English, I know that Inglés means English, I'd like to know where that name came from.
Just being curious. :D

No Pepa, they are not the same. The Mozárabe route is way down south joining on the Via de la Plata, whereas the Camino Ingles is right up north. There are people on the forum who know more about the Ingles....but I think the route gets that name as English people could take a boat to a northern harbour and walk to Santiago from there...

Thank you Margaret, I see what you mean.
But I looked at a Spanish forum and I don't find the Camino Inglés on their maps, what do they call it in Spanish? Anybody knows?

On this Spanish camino website the Camino Ingles is still called the camino Ingles!

The Camino Frances is called French because the French pilgrims travelled that way, and the Ingles because the English pilgrims (and Scandinavian and anyone else who came by sea to the north west Galician ports) came that way.

There are so many routes with lots of names it cam be very confusing. Mundicamino and the CSJ are good places to look at to disentangle them!

Sorry, it seems the Mundicamino site is sending a dubious warning of viruses, which himself says is rubbish and to be ignored.
