Sunrise / sunset


Camino(s) past & future

I have been wanting to know how many hours of daylight there are for walking in Sep / Oct and hence sunrise / sunset times in Spain on the Camino Frances. Readers may find this site helpful:


and enter the appropriate large town, eg Pamplona. Once there look under Astronomy and enter the date in which you are interested and you are shown sr and ss and other info.

I think all the weather sites give you that info (e.g. http://weather.yahoo.com/SPXX/SPXX0208/index_c.html) - this is based on the coordinates for the weather station, which is generally at the airport.

If you want to see the data for any coordinates for an entire year, try for example http://aa.usno.navy.mil/ - data services. Beware of time zones: Spain uses Central European Time, even though most of it is W of Greenwich. This means clocks are way off the time according to the sun, especially in Galicia.
