Sections of the Camino Frances between the France-Spain border and Galicia

This first Camino covers the attractive and varied terrain from St. Jean Pied de Port—the last town in France—across the Pyrenees mountains and into the Spanish provinces of Navarre and La Rioja.

This next itinerary follows the Camino as it continues across Spain’s most famous wine-producing region—la Rioja— enters “la Meseta”, the high plains of Castile, and ends in the historic city of Burgos.

This next Camino traverses the flattest stages of the Way across the vast high plains of Castile – in the provinces of Burgos, Palencia and León

On this Camino you’ll experience a fascinating change in environment, architecture and culture as the Way leaves Castile to finally enter the green hills of Galicia.
