What is the best starting point for a 2-3 week Camino?

2-3 week Camino
2-3 week Camino

The question was:

I’m thinking of walking the camino for the first time this May.

I have 2/3 weeks (I can’t get any more holiday from work) and was wondering what route would be best for this time of year and time period.

* I will probably be walking alone but would like to meet some other English speakers along the way (I did Spanish at school but am quite rusty). But not so busy that it’s hard to find beds (or occasional peace and quiet).
* I’d like to do something that feels like a complete route in its own right, rather than the last few stages of a longer route (or one broken up by public transport).
* I’d like a route with beautiful scenery and interesting towns/buildings along the way (including religious buildings like monasteries and churches/cathedrals – the religious aspect of the pilgrimage is quite important).

Does anyone have any recommendations?
