CSJ Guides and Updates

We publish guides to all the major routes to Santiago. These guides are deliberately kept simple, so that they can be revised easily, produced cheaply, and reissued frequently.  The formats available are:

  • A5 size booklet with laminated covers – available from our online shop
  • Kindle ebook – available from Amazon

Please note we also offer some free to download material as follows:

  • Free PDF guide – these are freely available to download for some of our discontinued/out-of-date guides.  If you are uncertain which route you wish to walk these are useful for basic planning, but please be sure to find up-to-date information before making definite plans.
  • Free 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.

If you find the free guides helpful, please consider making a donation to recognise the work that goes to making these Guides available. 

Please see the list below for the guides and the formats available for each route. Click on the buttons to buy or download, as appropriate:
