French Way

 

The pilgrim route par excellence has two branches, depending on the piligrims’ point of entry from France

The main French Way: Having reached Saint Jean Pied de Port (France), the pilgrims travel 774 kilometres in Spain, passing through the provinces of Navarre, La Rioja, Burgos, Palencia, Leon, Lugo and A Coruña. At an average of 20-25 kilometres daily, it usually takes about 30 days to reach Santiago.

The route began to be signposted with yellow arrows in the eighties, thanks to the parish priest of O Cebreiro, Elías Valiña, and the Association of the Friends of the Navarre Way. This first symbol is now accompanied by milestones and each region’s institutional signs.

Roncesvalles – Pamplona – Puente La Reina – Estella – Logroño – Nájera – Santo Domingo de la Calzada – Burgos – CastroJeriz - Carrión de los Condes – Frómista – Sahagún – León – Astorga – Ponferrada and then they enter Galicia via O Cebreiro – Samos – Sarria – Portomarín – Palas de Reis – Melide – Arzúa – Santiago de Compostela.
