Camino Francés. The energy of the Camino
The energy of the Camino Francés starts once you decid to follow the famous yellow arrows but also countless other things that show you the way to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. The tour breathes the energy of pilgrimage. Pilgrims from all over the world come together: fat, thin, young, old, from the successful businessman to the newly graduated student. Together they share joys and sorrows along the way. And that is a special energy that can be experienced.
Every year more than 300,000 people decide to do the Camino de Santiago and of them more than 180,000 choose to travel the Camino Frances. If you are passionate about statistics, in this link you can access the information published by the Santiago de Compostela Pilgrim’s Office.
Camino Francés. Cities
But that’s not the only thing that makes the Camino Frances so unique. The many villages and towns that you will pass on your pilgrimage are also entirely dedicated to the pilgrim. In fact, some hamlets would not exist without the many pilgrims who flock here every year to take a well-deserved rest on their Camino de Santiago. The cathedrals of Burgos and Leon are also definitely worth a visit. Maybe you would like to spend an extra night there? This is possible! We will make you a proposal that is perfectly adapted to your needs.
Camino Francés. Landscapes
The Camino Francés is also a very varied Camino. From the Pyrenees in Saint Jean Pied de Port, the grain fields in the Pamplona region, the flat Meseta between Burgos and León to the green forests of Galicia. All of these beautiful landscapes pass you by at a slow pace.
Camino Francés. The Stages
The complete French Way is a unique experience of approximately one month of walking that can be divided into sections to be covered over several years.
Many people decide to walk the last 100 kms of the French Way between Sarriá and Santiago de Compostela as this is a requirement to get the Compostela, the certification that accredits you as a pilgrim who has made the Camino de Santiago. This makes it the busiest.
