Product description

Product Description

Revised and updated for 2017 based on waling the Camino in June and July 2016. Now also includes altitude profiles.

A practical guide to walking the Camino de Santiago/Camino Francés with information about pilgrim hostels and services plus lots of background information about the history, culture and architecture of the places you will pass through.

It covers the Camino from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Santiago de Compostela and onwards to the coast at Finisterre and Muxia.

This guide grew out of the free community-based guide to the Camino which is kept up-to-date with the help of feedback from pilgrims past and present.

The guide includes:

The Route: distances between places with pilgrim hostels, descriptions of difficult points along the route.

Maps: route maps showing the Camino in rural areas and large-scale maps of the major cities and towns showing the location of Pilgrim Hostels and other facilities.

Accommodation: up-to-date and accurate information about pilgrim hostels, the facilities provided and prices. (Please note, this guide does not contain information about hotels and guesthouses.)

Services: information about services (shops, restaurants, tourist information, internet, etc.) plus the dates of local festivals.

Sights: historical and architectural information about the sights you’ll see along the Camino.

History: a brief history of the towns and villages along the Camino, describing significant events, people and legends.

Gastronomy: descriptions of the traditional dishes to watch out for in the different regions and recommendations on where to try them.

Placenames: the meanings and origins of the names of villages and towns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resource for planning and walking the Camino 28 April 2016
By Leslie R. S. - Published on

What a fantastic resource! We used John Brierley's guide and maps planning our Camino in 2013, which worked pretty well, but they would have been a lot of weight to carry for 500 miles. We searched for a Kindle guide to put on my iPhone, and found Gerald Kelly's book. It was just what we needed. The towns were all there, even the smallest, with up to date information on lodging, complete with telephone numbers, and email addresses. The maps, which were sort of schematic, were more than adequate. The book does not have Brierley's spiritual readings, but we had other spiritual materials on our iPhones and liked the fact that the Kelly guide stuck to the essentials: how to get there, how long it would take, where to stay, and what it would cost.

We're planning another Camino this summer, and obtained the 2015 edition. It is definitely new and improved. For one thing, it looks like the maps have been upgraded; they have topo data now, which I don't recall in the 2012 edition. It's always good to have a sense of how steep the walk will be. This edition also has an alphabetical list of places in the beginning; clicking on them is much easier than using the Kindle search function we had to use on the prior edition.

As far as I can tell, the book is completely unbiased. Places Mr. Kelly recommended were all as promised, and he seems to be careful to say only things like "Good reports" when his information is not first hand. We liked the fact that he did not seem to be steering us towards any particular places.

The book seems to be very up to date; it even warns that the Pilgrim Office in Santiago was scheduled to move to a new address this year (which it has).

Anyone walking the Camino will benefit from this resource. The price is very reasonable, the the weight on your back is zero, if you have a phone. It has all the information you need. We can't wait to start out again this summer with Mr. Kelly's guide on my iPhone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Option for Kindle 27 October 2013
By Dan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Walked the Camino Frances with this guide and the michelin guide. More than enough information on albergues and amenities. If you want to take lots of books to read this is the best option really, as it is the best kindle / electronic guide there is. Highly recommended.

NOTE: This is not a preparation guide, it does not talk about what to pack etc. It is made for on the way getting you from A -> B
3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition review 9 March 2017

Had I known the maps are all sideways view when using iPad meaning they are impossible to read without the extra effort to toggle on and off the screen lock and again to go back to the text. Most annoying to think that this guide would be used navigating the Camino on a phone no less. This feedback goes to the author or whomever made the decision to for this setup. I also thought it not help when a "new place" is given no name, as well as only phone numbers, shouldn't a guide provide an address, an email? Disappointed but found a much preferred option as my tool.
4.0 out of 5 stars Been reading it but there seems to be some confusion ... 7 March 2017

Been reading it but there seems to be some confusion as to what is considered the eight and the left trail; the natrarive says the Napoleon route is the left route but the graphic on page 12 titles it the right route.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful book without all commentary. 21 June 2017

I just finished walking from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Finisterre and this book was a great help. It gave all the information that I needed to find a comfortable bed each night. Distances between villages given in KM and hours. Descriptions of hostels very useful. The best Albergues have an evening meal. Basic maps of bigger towns and regions. No frills but good solid information. The only thing I would add to this book would be a larger map of the regions being walked through.
