We publish guides to all the major routes to Santiago. They are deliberately kept simple, so that they can be produced cheaply, and reissued frequently. All are in A5 format, with laminated covers, for ease of use during a pilgrimage, and can be ordered through our online shop.
We also offer some guides as free downloads: these are usually for shorter, less popular routes. Some of the more popular routes have an earlier version available for free download simply to assist with basic planning for those uncertain which route they wish to walk.
If you find the free guides helpful, please consider making a donation to recognise the work that goes to making these Guides available.
Between full revisions, we prepare update sheets. These are sometimes done by the guide-writer alone, but often they are based on feedback from pilgrims who have travelled the route in question during the previous year.
Please find below a list of routes, indicating whether the guide is available as an A5 booklet, a free PDF download and whether there are updates available. Click on the buttons to buy or download, as appropriate:
