This is the 2020 edition.  

Welcome to El Camino that leads from the foothills of the Pyrenees in France to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia – a distance of 791 km (490 miles). During the past ten years the Camino has witnessed an amazing revival to regain its place as the most popular Christian pilgrim route in the world – but this is no modern fad for this ancient path has been transforming lives for more than ten centuries. In recognition of, “The testimony to the power of faith and the 1,800 buildings of great historic interest that lie along its path” it was proclaimed the first European Cultural Itinerary in 1987 and inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1993.

288 pages paperback in full colour including:

  • Overview route planner
  • 33 daily stage maps showing optional routes 
  • 33 Contour guides List of pilgrim hostels and alternative accommodation
  • 14 Town plans
  • Practical notes on preparation including Equipment and clothing checklist Dictionary with basic pilgrim phrases 
  • Historical notes and places of special interest.

In addition to the physical route there are pointers to:

  • the Mystical path with Inspirational quotations space for Personal reflections
  • and a Self-assessment questionnaire to help prepare for the inner journey.

All this designed to fit easily into your pocket. The guide is now smaller than previous editions and designed to fit easily into your pocket measuring only 12cm x 19cm and weighing a mere 287 grams.

First published as A Pilgrim's Guide to Camino de Santiago in 2003 these popular guides are regularly updated. 

Walked by millions over the millennia the Camino de Santiago represents a major force for spiritual renewal and transformation. In the spaciousness of the Landscape Temple we walk through we become open and receptive to the wisdom that is in us and around us. When we step beyond the habitual judgments and expectations that confine us, we become ready to expand, to change and to grow. With an appreciation for what the path shows us, the growing becomes joyful adventure.

There are thousands of long distance pathways we can walk but only the Camino has achieved world recognition for its historical and spiritual significance and, inevitably, such accolades bring greater numbers wishing to experience its healing potential. Although numbers have increased tenfold during the past ten years, this is still less than half the estimated pilgrims that walked the Camino each year during the medieval period. Perhaps now is your time?

Fabulous

Very informative guide book, John brierley explains it as it is. The maps are great and very easy to understand, also very interesting are the little bits of back history to the towns you are visiting, some basic spanish language to get you through spain. Over all a very good guide book to have with you on your journey.

St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela

This more that just a road map for Peregrinos. Reading it beforehand gets you into the spirit and head-space for your Camino. It is full of essential information and, to my mind, is the only book you will need. However, remember there are no answers on the Camino — only questions. I am on my third Camino but I never stop learning (and dreaming) of my next stage. Buen Camino.

A Must Have! for your Camino

This book was the backbone to my successful Camino. I made notes on the pages everyday, so it is also my diary. It was also helpful to have my Credencial Del Peregrino in hand at the start. So pack light, wear good shoes and a hat, and use your walking poles. Buen Camino!
