French Route on St James Way

French Route on St James Way
Galicia Spain

The French Way/Camino Frances is the most traditional of all the pilgrims’ ways to Santiago and the best known internationally. The route, which was established in the late 11th century, crosses the North of the Iberian Peninsula, through the Basque Country, Navarra, La Rioja, Castilla y Leon and Galicia regions of Spain. Starting in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, at the foothills of the French Pyrenees, the French Way runs through Northern Spain, from East to West, all the way to Santiago de Compostela, in the Northwestern corner of the country.

The French Way enters Galicia from El Bierzo ascending to the mountain pass of O Cebreiro (1,300 m), in the province of Lugo. From here, there are 152 kilometers left on the Camino to reach Santiago de Compostela.
