The website got to Camino Ignaciano covers much of the route, but from the opposite direction.

Gronze – in Spanish but translates easily with http://itools.com/tool/google-translate-web-page-translator
**************************************************
Wikiloc.com and app - stage maps – search wikiloc for possible maps with elevations and rough idea of the time. Good search terms are Cami Sant Jaume or a starting and ending point. I find it easier sometimes to google search than to search the app. Also good if you want to record your walk.

Amics Camí Sant Jaume de Terrassa have a number of walks
************************************
ViaMichelin- maps have an option on the right hand side to display hiking routes. Unfortunately, it displays every hiking path, not just the Camino. They also use assorted names for various sections of the Camino. Takes some getting used to, but it has the best detailed maps. Also great for checking out what monuments/museums/major churches to see. Also great if your budget allows a bit more than all pilgrim menus to check possible restaurants along the way.

Wow, this is a great resource! I will make it a sticky.

I walked from Llança to Montserrat and then with @LT from Montserrat on the Catalán. The Catalán splits only a few days after Montserrat, and I have heard from many that the Huesca alternative (which I walked) is far more scenic than the one through Lleida. But for anyone walking the Lleida alternative, I would suggest a detour after Zaragoza to get on the Camino Castellano-Aragonés. It is an absolutely wonderful camino, totally untraveled, but very very nice. It will get you from Zaragoza to Burgos, but you can also take a three day alternative to this alternative from Santo Domingo de Silos to Burgos on the Camino San Olav. Confusing perhaps, but glorious!

Stop it, please, both of you! I have to say this all looks increasingly tempting - and look at all those links! Thank you @Steven Dwyer !

Not so much, just braided channels meeting and diverging. (Though some of us manage to walk the wrong way out of small easily navigable villages, which is another story. :oops: But that was even more glorious...)

Nearly every year since 2006, often walking more than one route.
oooooooo... this one is looking pretty good!
The list of resources are awesome! Thanks!

Laurie, didn't you post a thread on the route from Montserrat?

2002, Toulouse/Aragon 2005, Cami S Jaume/Aragon 2007/9, Mont Saint Michel/Norte/Vadiniense 2011, Norte/Primitivo 2013, Norte/Primitivo 2014. Norte 2015, Cami S Jaume/Castellano-Aragonese 2016
While the Castellano Aragonese is incredible for the Camino junkie (the sort of maniac who is on their 10th or so), normal caminoholics (say, 3-5 caminos), would likely enjoy the Catalan up through Huesca and to San Juan de la Peña.

You've missed one very important resource :


especially : https://caminoignaciano.org/en/lodging/

The Camino Ignaciano is basically identical to the Cami Catalan between Montserrat and Logroño on the variant via Lleida, or to Tàrrega if you take the Huesca > Aragonès one to Puente la Reina -- except those pilgrims walk in the opposite direction towards Manresa.

Here's a better link for the English language Guide from the Association of Friends of the Camino de Santiago de L'Hospitalet.


This one will be quite useful for me so many thanks for showing the way to it Steven !!
One minor clarification for the first stop after Bujaraloz. The hotel El Ciervo was definitely quite closed when I went through but some googling suggests that it may be open again. I would suggest that anyone considering it should call in advance to make sure it is open as it is 28km to the next accommodation at Pina del Ebro.

I found this Spring that most of the resources for the Cami Catalan are out of date (a bit less so for the Huesca variant). More albergues exist than are typically accounted for in those documents, although some resources alluded to there have since vanished.

The most up-to-date resource I've found, in my experience this year, is the Camino Ignaciano website, probably because of the degree to which the Ignaciano pilgrims outnumber the Compostela ones -- luckily I'm hiking via Lleida (probably restarting there in October), so that its information will be useful to me all the way to Logroño and the Francès.

And according to that, there are three hotels in Bujaraloz -- two of which give pilgrim discounts.

But on this Camino in particular, it's a good idea to get your hands on as many lodgings documents as possible.

I would stay in Bujaraloz if you don't feel like taking the risk. Otherwise it's only the gasolinera for water until the Saint Lucia bar and then to Pina, all a hundred metres away from the carretera. Don't forget to check out the Goya fresco in Alagon at the Jesuit College. It is likely his first work, and a world away from his better-known stuff.
