    They are. If you look at the photo in the article in La Voz also i you do not understand too much Spanish one can use A on line translator to give you some idea of what the article(s) are about.
    The link you gave above makes me smile a bit as it publishes an image of the church next to me. I am some around 20 mins walk off the route. (It is long if you walk back again as it is a steep up hill trek).

    I just registered for this site. It looks like it might be something very good. I also downloaded the free app to my iPhone.

    As I hope to do the Invierno this April, I may try to use this to plan ahead. We will see how this works out...

    They're also promising they won't run out, because they're reprinting it according to demand, and the guide book has space for all our sellos and will serve as a credencial.

    I LIKE the Xunta.

    I take it from Rick and Ribeirasacra's comments that the website Rick linked to is different from the guide described. Is there an online version of the guide?

    I'm not particularly good at web searches in languages other than English but I did find the news item about new guide to the Invierno is also mentioned at
    https://somoscomarca.es/turismo-galicia-edita-una-nueva-guia-del-camino-invierno/

    It says:

    Esta guía se suma a la información ya disponible hasta ahora a través de la app y de la página web del proyecto Smart Camino, pero Nava Castro alentó a los asistentes a no dejar de compartir sus conocimientos con los visitantes, “como buenos anfitriones”, y subrayó que el Camino de Santiago, “además de suponer una enorme riqueza cultural, genera beneficios económicos y sociales, abre nuevas oportunidades de negocio y nichos de mercado, dinamiza las economías locales, las diversifica y, de esa manera, ayuda a la fijación de población en los entornos rurales”.

    (This guide adds to the information already available through the app and the website of the Smart Camino project, but Nava Castro encouraged the attendees not to stop sharing their knowledge with visitors, "as good hosts", and stressed that the Camino de Santiago, "besides supposing an enormous cultural wealth, generates economic and social benefits, opens new business opportunities and niche markets, stimulates local economies, diversifies them and, in this way, helps to fix of population in rural environments".)

    The website mentioned above was linked and the English version of the page linked to was already mentioned above: http://www.caminodesantiago.gal/en/make-plans/the-ways/winter-way

    The word app was not linked to but the description of it in English can be found at: http://www.caminodesantiago.gal/en/get-ready/technological-utilities-and-services/the-ways-app

    The app is available in English. This is probably the app that @t2andreo mentioned downloading.
