FRENCH SAN­TI­AGO DE COM­POSTELA PATH — PART I

In this new adventure you will ride from St. Jean Pied de Port to Burgos, following the 1st part of the Camino, off the beaten path from France. This trail has more than 1000 years, and is one of the most important Christian pilgrim paths since medieval times. This programme will visit the most important pilgrim’s passage points, with its churches and cathedrals, in contrast with the urban style of the twenty-first century. You will feel the friendliness welcome by the traditional hospitality offered to the pilgrims in this path. You will visit emblematic places such as Roncesvalles, Pamplona, Burgos and of course, crossing the Pyrenees! “Buen camino!”
