Camino de Santiago

2015 Camino Francés

The Camino Francés (French Way) is 785 kilometers from Saint Jean Pied de Port, France, to Santiago de Compostela, Spain, and the most famous of all the Camino de Santiago routes, featured in many documentaries, books, and movies such as The Way.

2016 Via de la Plata/Camino Sanabrés

The Vía de la Plata (Silver Way), starting in Sevilla (Seville), is 1000 kilometers from Sevilla traveling through Mérida, Cáceres and Salamanca to Zamora then via one of several variants to Santiago de Compostela. From Zamora the route continues directly northward to join the Camino Francés at Astorga or via Puebla de Sanabria on the Camino Sanabrés.

The Camino Sanabrés, also known as the Vía de la Plata Ourense option or the Camino Meridional, leads directly to Santiago bypassing the Camino Francés, branching from the VDLP at the village of Granja de Moreruela then northwest through Puebla de Sanabria to Santiago.

Planned Route: 1,006 kilometers from Seville to Santiago via Ourense, Spain
