  1. The Maps in most Pilgrim Guidebooks are adequate. Make sure they show distances, Important places to visit, Elevations so you can see what to expect. Everything else is a bonus. Some pilgrim offices also provide maps but you may not find that!

  2. don’t think you can beat John Brierley’s book – for maps and general info, I found it light weight, covered everything and, above all, accurate

  3. Who needs maps just follow those beautiful yellow arrows, or talk to the locals. We were “adopted” several times by locals who walked with you to find the Camino or Albergue. Toss the books, or better yet save your money and don’t buy one. It is an adventure, live on the wild side and save some weight. Buen Camino.
