Denoted with a thicker burgundy coloured line above is the most popular route, the Camino Francés. The second most common route, the Camino Portugués is on the lower left of the map from Lisbon and Porto. As you can see, there a huge number of possible routes coming from France, Germany and even the UK. However, the facilities are much less than those you can find in Spain. Get in touch with the local associations to find out more about official accommodation before setting off.

A more detailed map showing the main stages on the Camino Francés. The traditional starting point is at St. Jean Pied de Port which is the more Northerly of the two denoted routes crossing over the French/Spanish border. Above, the larger population centres such as León, Burgos, Logroño and Pamplona are in bold font. Sarria, which is the fourth dot going East of Santiago de Compostela is the most popular starting point with around 25% of people going from here!
