Our tours of the French Way of Santiago de Compostela

Even though the tomb of the apostle Santiago el Mayor is at the end of the Camino de Santiago, starting anywhere along the route is possible. Each pilgrim chooses a point of departure according to their physical capacity or the time they have.

The traditional starting points of the French Way are considered to be a small town called Saint Jean Pied de Port in the French Basque Country, and a small town called Roncesvalles in the Spanish Navarrese Pyrenees. Pambre Tours offer a range of popular starting points for pilgrims to join the French Way; such as León, O Cebreiro, or Sarria.

The French Way, given its extraordinary cultural, artistic and landscape richness, has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993.

This Way crosses Spanish territory along a nearly 800 km route through four autonomous communities and seven provinces: Navarre, La Rioja, Castile and León (Burgos, Palencia, León), and Galicia (Lugo, A Coruña). On the whole crosses 141 populated regions.

It is noteworthy that the Camino de Santiago is the best route for sign posts and has the most extensive network of public hostels and accessing services. However, it is also the most crowded, especially during the summer.
