An walking guidebook to the Way of St James. The 778km Camino de Santiago pilgrimage from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain and onto the 'end of the earth' at Finisterre on the Galician coast. As well as giving directions for walking the route, the book also provides information on places to visit along the way, the history of the pilgrimage and the availability of practical facilities such as shops, bars, restaurants and accommodation. Unlike existing guides this one contains: details of the walker's continuation from Santiago to Finisterre (75km) and a comprehensive listing of St James' and other pilgrim references along the way. It also contains a list of suggestions for further reading, a glossary of geographical and other useful terms, and a series of sketch maps covering the entire route to help the user in planning his or her journey. This guidebook is the second part of a series that follows the Way of St James from Le Puy-en-Valey in ventral France to the Pyranees.
