I am going to try to break this trip down into ten day segments so bear with me, some parts might get repetitive. If they are, feel free to skip to the next section or just look at the pretty pictures. I promise I will not be offended.
*Please note I will list the ending point of each day and any noteworthy parts which come before.
The traditional starting point of the camino is in France. At Saint Jean Pied de Por. This is the beginning of a 780Km walk.
This is supposed to be the hardest part of the walk. Those moments agter you enter the Pyrenees and begin to realize that this is not the walk in the park you thought it would be, pun intended.
A second less popular starting point, just inside of the French border, is a great place to start if I did not want to leave home
Of the few things written about the most notable is a beautiful old church.
This is also often a point where initial foot problems come to a head.
Puerta la Rellna
This city features a beautiful six arch bridge.
Filled with Cyprus trees and farm country this proves to be a beautiful part of the trip.
Fountains of wine and water, need I say more?
Rich in Roman and Celtic architecture this town was once settled by both of these Peoples.
The trip to this city is mostly up hill but, the city and the journey are well worth it. Nájera was one the capital of country of Navarre.
Santo Domingo de la Calzada
And the walking continues…
