Camino Francés

Camino Francés (GR65), Roncesvalles / Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port - Puente la Reina - Santiago de Compostela, 800 km, 32 days

This is the classical and most popular Way of St. James, running from the Pyrenees through the plains of northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. It all began here. Nowadays, there are hundreds of waymarked Ways of St. James, some 30 in Spain alone. The classical Camino Francés is an easy path. If you like mixing with scores of other pilgrims, this is still your best bet. If you are more the type of a lonely hiker, there are better alternatives, like the coastal route.

The path has also an official GR number in Spain: GR65 Camino de Santiago. Note that there is also the GR65-5 in Catalunya (Camino de Tarragona) and the GR65-3 in the central Pyrenees (Camino Aragonés).
