The Camino de Invierno is a camino that runs from Ponferrada, parallel to the Camino Frances (just south).

It has been marked with arrows, and I wonder if this camino can become an alternative to the crowded Camino Frances?

Rebekah Scott have written a good guide on the Camino de Invierno. What do you think? Would you consider walking it?
