Astorga to Santiago de Compostela
The French Way or the Camino Frances is the Jacobean itinerary with the most deep-rooted historical tradition and it is the most popular one. Over 60% of the pilgrims choose the Camino Frances because it is the route where you can get the most of the “pilgrim experience”. There are many pilgrims that you will meet on your journey and there are many facilities that cater to pilgrims. This is claimed to be the best waymarked route of all.
While St Jean Pied de Port is the official starting point of the French Way, Choose Happiness Adventures begins our tour of the Camino Francés in the city of Astorga. From here on you will meet many fellow pilgrims and find the real spirit and camaraderie of the Camino!
