Details: The Camino de Santiago (the Way of St James) is a glorious walk across the north of Spain, following an ancient pilgrimage route west to the magnificent cathedral at Santiago de Compostela. Walking the Camino de Santiago lets you into Spain's cultural and culinary secrets, includes a detailed, illustrated wildlife section, and gives you all the practical information you need for a hassle-free pilgrimage. The Camino de Santiago attracts more than 100,000 pilgrims a year, and in Holy Years, such as 2010, these numbers more than double.
This third edition was entirely re-researched, our authors re-walked the entire route and checked out every albergue (pilgrim hostel) along the way. We have added new features, such as more easy to use symbols and an expanded accommodation section, and kept old favourites such as information on wildlife, food and culture.
Walking the Camino de Santiago is lightweight, compact, fits on bookshelves and slides into pockets or backpacks. The book is printed on 100% post consumer recycled paper.
