Planning which route to take to Santiago
There are many traditional and recognised routes to the Tomb of St. James the Apostle. Remember medieval pilgrims simply left from their own front doors. Some pilgrims, particularly those living in Spain, still do that.
Deciding which route you wish to take depends on a number of things: the amount of time you have for your pilgrimage; whether you wish to walk a whole route to Santiago or perhaps walk one of the routes in stages at different times; and what time of the year you wish to do this.
The internet has much information about the Way and all of its routes. For example, you can use a search engine such as Google to ask any questions you may have or you can use sites like these:

There also may be a local organisation that can help. A list of Confraternities and Associations is on the following pages.
