Nearly 600 pilgrims, most of them foreigners, chose the route from Bayonne in 2009 to reach the road to Santiago. In 2008 there were about 450. The trend of visitors is expected to goes up in 2010.
Hence, the Association of Friends of the Camino Mirandesa has, amongst its objectives a long list of projects they hopes to perform in the coming months which has been mainly focused on establishing the route as well as services that can be found along it.
To do this, they have begun working on compiling a pocket-sized guide that outlines the route and explains where you can sleep, eat or shop, among other things. "It will set the path, milestones and Jacobean through which they can meet the needs of pilgrims in each of the localities," detailed Andrew Terrazas, president of the Association of Friends of the Camino de Miranda.
All this information will also be provided through their website http://www.caminoviadebayona.com
And over 95% of those who have come to Miranda this year's pilgrimage were foreigners, mainly French, although there were Belgians, Dutchmen, Poles, and Swiss. Hardly a score of Spanish people have passed through the city for choosing a route much less crowded and explored.

What route are they referring to? Bayonne to SJPDP?

We crossed from the Vezelay route to the Route Littorale (the French coastal route from Bourdeux which leads to the Spanish border at Hendaye and thence to the Norte). We therefore went through Bayonne, and looked in on the tourist office and the cathedral. Finding no signs of anything St Jacques-ish we used a town map to make our way to the Youth hostel in Anglet, near the beaches and full of surfers and sand for the night. There were yellow arrows all down the coast from there to Hendaye.
