  • Camino Frances

    The most famous Camino route is "the Camino Frances". The Camino Frances or French Route to Santiago de Compostela starts in St-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the French side of the Basque Country and ends in Santiago de Compostela around 800 km later.   The Way of Saint James, passes through the same villages, crosses the same rivers and visits the same churches and monuments as it did over the last 1000 years. Of course you can choose your departure point and the number of walking days that you want. Many 'pilgrims" complete the Way in several years, each year a few more stages, but quite a large number of them decide to walk it entirely in around 38 days.

    The Camino Frances was proclaimed the first European Cultural itinerary in 1987 and was inscribed on the Unesco List as a World Heritagein 1993.
