Past OR future Camino
camino frances, camino de la plata
Hello everyone, I am doing research for the university and I need to inesert important websites about the Camino de Santiago for some European countries. These are the ones I thought I would put:

1. Spain: gronze.com, caminosantiago.org, caminodesantiago.gal;

2. Germany: camino-europe.eu, jakobsweg.de,?;

3. France: lepelerin.com, pelerinsdecompostelle.com, vendeecompostelle.org;

4. United Kingdom: saintjamesway.eu, csj.org.uk, britishpilgrimage.org;

5. Italy: pellegrinibelluno.it, pellegrinando.it, ilcamminodisantiago.net;

6. Portugal: sixtosnocaminho.com, vagamundos.pt/caminho-de-santiago,?.

Can anyone help me with the missing ones or recommend better ones if these don't go well? Thanks!

It seems to me that you have a somewhat random collection of non-profit Camino associations, private sites, planning tools, and family blogs.

It is hard to know if you are looking for sites to start/continue in-depth academic research on some aspect of the camino, sites where modern pilgrims can plan their upcoming pilgrimage, or personal accounts of recent trips.

In Spain, I would expect that the Pilgrim Office of the Cathedral of Santiago would be on the list of important Camino websites. A methodical approach might then look at the Federación Española de Asociaciones de Amigos del Camino de Santiago. On that site are links to over 40 local branches as well as many other organizations that are heavily involved in Camino matters. Maybe there is a similar organization in Portugal - your research should lead to that. Some of the associations in other countries probably have connections with the Federación Española.

By browsing through this forum site, including the Resources section, you should be able to find a lot of good references. Try clicking on the tags "history" and "pilgrims & pilgrimage" for some interesting discussions and further leads.

thank you very much for the advice, I am trying to find authoritative sites for the journey. But I would also like to include sites that help the pilgrim.
I will probably increase the number to 6 and make a distinction between the two types

Hello @Elcaminodelasestrellas
Would you consider adding Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Czech republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Roumania, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Ukraine and a few others to your list of European countries? I have walked through nearly all of these as a Jacob pilgrim and found vibrant, enthusiastic communities and associations devoted to establishing El Camino de Santiago in their lands... As it stands your list represents only western European involvement in El Camino de Santiago.

Looking forward to your response.

Cheers

How about https://caminodesantiago.consumer.es/ ? It is an invaluable resource that I've used over the years. They also have an incredible mobile app that comes in handy along the Camino.

I love all European countries, too bad there are too many! ;) I know that there are very active associations, for example they told me also in Lithuania there is a path. But I will try to put as much as possible, especially I will try to represent all the languages of east and west!

Laba diena! @Elcaminodelasestrellas

I know of two groups currently active in Lithuania signing trails, supporting pilgrims along the way and promoting El Camino de Santiago in Lithuania. There may be others that I have not come across.

As I have walked through Europe I have been introduced to independent pilgrim networks that prefer anonymity. They aid pilgrims walking to Santiago de Compostella and other sanctuaries without having a website or making their activities public knowledge. One somehow stumbles upon a hospitable soul who happens to have a series of contacts along the trail. The pilgrim is passed joyfully from home to home, village to village. Those involved do not wish to form an association.

Thanks for your kind reply, what you tell me will be very helpful. I discover the community of camino and I see that there is a lot of generosity and willingness to help. This is truly an important value for everyone.
I also hope one day to walk in Lithuania!
