I have a number of Marc Hefner’s canvases and framed prints in my home. And have shared many of his beautiful greeting cards over the years. I first became aware of Marc, the artist behind Camino Estella, on my second Camino Frances back in 2013 when I saw one of his framed prints hanging in Albergue San Saturnino in Ventosa. I was captured by the image, took a picture of it, managed to decifer the small signature and, after many months, managed to track down Marc. We have continued to correspond from time to time since then. He is a talented artist and a generous person with a longstanding interest in thé Camino. His work can be sent all around the world at very reasonable postage charges 🙏

The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
