Roman Camino?

On several stretches of the Camino Frances one walks on an original roman road, most of it perfectly preserved and functional.
Looks like that formed the early 'backbone' of the Camino for a long time through the history.

Which roman 'Via' was that, by name, and where to find more information about it? :?:

Here is my favorite link concerning the vias romanas in Northern Spain and particularly those leading to Galicia :

http://traianus.rediris.es/viasromanas/

This is serious work and after reading it you will know all about roman engineering of roads and bridges. Should be "compulsory reading" for all History enthousiasts before starting the Camino Francès.

Ulysse:
Your info is exactly what I had been hoping to find. So interesting, and full of detail. Poor me, I wish I had known this before I went. This really adds yet another dimension to the Camino. :shock:
Many thanks,
K.

Wonderful site!
How awful that parts of the roads are still being destroyed today.
