Guidebooks for the Camino de Santiago


Moon Camino de Santiago

By pilgrim and anthropologist Beebe Bahrami, this guidebook is my top pick for the incredible depth of knowledge the author brings to the page. It is filled with gorgeous color photos, a detailed 42-day walking itinerary, and extensive information on the regions you will be walking through. It also comes with a beautiful fold-out color map depicting the route. This is the book you will want to read before you go, on the trail, and again when you return, as you reminisce and savor your memories of walking the Camino.

Best selling author John Brierley offers a 33 day itinerary for the Camino Francés, including maps for each stage.













For the Caminho Português:
