Hi friends:

I understand that Oloron-St Marie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WF-LkjFhoH8 is the last French town prior to crossing the Pyrenees en route to Somport, the begining of the Camino Aragones.

Does anyone know how I can get there FROM SPAIN?

Is there an albergue in Oloron?

Are there places (albergues?) in which to spend the night between Oloron-Somport? I've stayed at the albergue in Somport-no comments there...

How's the road from Oloron to Somport?

How many days are we talking about?

I would appreciate ANY info.

Bueno Camino,

xm

Can't find an English or Spanish alternative.

Try this site as well for some info - it opens to a mpa of the Via Tolosana from Puente La Reina - Jaca - Orolon.

Getting to Oloron Ste Marie

Where are you hoping to cross over from Spain to France?
There are two trains a day that go from Biarrits and Pau to Oloron.
Check out this website: (I put in a date a month from now just to check the timetable)

Oloron - Somport

I just got an e-mail informing me that there are buses from Canfranc to Oloron.

So this may be the plan:

Madrid- Zaragoza (AVE).
Zaragoza-Jaca (bus). Stay at the (great) albergue there + get Credencial.
Next day: Jaca-Canfranc (bus).
Then connection to Oloron.

Buen Camino,

xm
