New Guidebook from John Brierley.

This guidebook is for the dreamers out there. It comes out in its first edition during a pandemic (October 2020) and is written for the 2021 and 2022 walking year. 

144 pages paperback in full colour including:

  • Overview route planners
  • Daily stage maps
  • Contour guides
  • Alternative routes & detours
  • Detailed town plans
  • List of all pilgrim hostels & hotels
  • Historical notes
  • Myths and Legends…

This guidebook combines two ancient routes into Santiago that remain largely undiscovered despite their historic significance. Each route offers a very different camino experience but are combined in one volume as they join in A Laxe for the final stages. Each provides the minimum distance required for a pilgrim to apply for a Compostela; but that is not the purpose of this guidebook which seeks to off er alternatives to the busy routes through Sarria and Tui which account for over 80% of all pilgrims to Santiago; by contrast the Camino Invierno currently carries less than 1%. 

Camino Sanabrés offers a link from the Via de le Plata. This guide offers the last 5 stages of that itinerary commencing in Ourense with its rich Roman heritage and extant thermal baths. Excellent rail and road links make the city highly accessible for pilgrims wishing to commence their journey from this point. The acorn would be a fitting symbol for this route that winds its way through ancient oak forest past the Pico Santo into Santiago.

Camino Invierno provides a link from the Camino Francés and a wonderful alternative to the routes through Sarria which carry such a large volume of pilgrims. The ‘Winter Way’ is a camino in its own right as it snakes its way through the mystery of Las Médulas, the largest gold mines in the Roman Empire and now a World Heritage Site (see cover photo). It continues along the sacred banks of the río Sil, the incomparable Ribeira Sacra with its vineyards and chestnut forests. Its remote location and limited facilities make this a demanding route, well suited for the seasoned pilgrim with an adventurous spirit, seeking a quieter way.

This guidebook also seeks to find a balance between the outer and inner journey, between the physical and spiritual, which is why it is subtitled A Practical & Mystical Manual – that we might find a place to eat and sleep at the end of a hard day’s walk but also, and crucially, that we might find the courage to dive into the mystery of our own soul awakening.

 

Each guidebook comes with a free Camino Credential from the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.

I recently purchased J Brierley’s new C.Sanabres/Invierno book by mail order from Casa Ivar. The process was faultless, and I can highly recommend.

Very speedy delivery !

When I had placed an order of the Pilgrim's Guide to the Camino Invierno, I thought it would take about 2 weeks, but I received it much faster. I've just started planning my Camino. I hope I can do it early next year.

Camino 2020

Not being able to walk the Camino this year, it is a bit of joy to at least be able to read about it. The book from John Brierley did exactly that and I'm looking forward to follow 'his path' in better times to come. It is a very detailed description and I'm sure it will be very helpful.

Great service. I had preordered from Amazon, but your delivery was much faster. The added Credential was a surprise but very much appreciated. I can't wait to be able to use it!

Gracias Ivar

The guidebooks were delivered by the date promised allowing me to give one as a Christmas gift, the other into my Camino library. The Camino Invierno is on my Camino wishlist! Thanks again Ivar
