Book Description

Aug. 1 2003 Cicerone International Walking S
A walker's guide to the 778km Pilgrim Road from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the foothills of the Pyrenees on the French side to Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain and finally to the "end of the earth" in Finisterre on the Galician coast. It is the first original guide to the route in English, replacing the second part of the single volume previously published by Cicerone Press.As well as giving directions for walking the route, the book also provides information on places to visit along the way, the history of the pilgrimage and the availability of practical facilities such as shops, bars, restaurants and accommodation. Unlike existing guides (in any language) this one contains two additional features: details of the walker's continuation from Santiago to Finisterre (75km) and a comprehensive listing of St. James and other pilgrim references along the way (as an Appendix). It also contains a list of suggestions for further reading, a glossary of geographical and other useful terms and a series of sketch maps covering the entire route.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small and Detailed May 12 2009
By OrlandoMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm planning my pilgrimage, and this little booklet was highly reviewed for good reasons: it's small (lightweight and easy to carry in a backpack), colorful, and contains detailed descriptions of every place we'll visit while we walk. However, the descriptions and specific instructions are sometimes hard to understand without more maps. All the same, it is without equal among the Camino de Santiago travel guides. It's a "must-have" for planning the trip. I look forward to using it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect book for the trail April 30 2013
By Failtelorn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This small compact book is about the size of two wallets, one sitting beside the other. The quality is high and it seems like it would take a decent beating being used every day while walking the trail. In addition to the great information it includes many full color photos. Definitely a keeper and a carrying item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, must have for the pilgrim Jan. 27 2012
By ncinct - Published on Amazon.com
About 8 years ago I did the camino from St Jean to Santiago. At the time I had not information what so ever about the trip, only that I needed to start in St. Jean. So I did just that, flying into Paris, taking a train to St. Jean started walking. To be totally honest, not having any maps, guide books or people with me was terrifying. It wasn't till a couple of week into the trip that I found the older version of this book discarded or lost at a water fountain by the side of the road. I took the book and it was awesome! It was so nice to have an idea of where I was walking from day to do. I was essential. I now knew which of the towns on the road had a restaurant, food store, refugio etc. It really saved my pilgrimage. Up till the point that I found the book I was considering going back home. As I went along the Camino I found my self throwing away things I didn't need, and as I went day to day I tore out the pages I had already traveled. This was nice because i had less weight, but not I don't have the book as a reference.

Good luck to anyone going on the pilgrimage.
