For a walk on the camino

Take the bus to the AirPort and walk back on the camino and enjoy the 20 kilometers walk. Take a Nice lunch in the bodegas on your way.

Everyone stops for pictures here. But the trees hide your view of the city. Last place to get a drink before you enter the city

Didn't see much as pretty well fenced off as there is a large development going on...it should be interesting when its finished i.e. will it be true to the pilgrim ethos.

After walking the Camino... this place is the last stop and the first time you will have the view of the Cathedral in Santiago. It simply says that you are near... but looking at how tiny the Cathedral is from this location it still looks quite far and distant. It has become the selfie Capital of the Camino when all... More

You have to go there to get a sello from the chapel to complete your Camino, so there are many pilgrims but they are over taken by the coach loads of tourist that come for a photo opportunity and are probably unaware of the significance of the site as the first chance a pilgrim of old had to see Santiago.

Traditionally the spot where you would be able to view Santiago and the Cathedral, signaling the end of the pilgrimage. Great views, take time to enjoy Pope John Paul memorial

Great view. If you wish to reach Santiago in the morning, this is a great place to stop for the night. Large Albergue. I preferred to reach Santiago in the morning since there were large groups of pilgrims heading towards Santiago in late afternoon. Reached the pilgrims office just before 8 and there were hardly any wait. Was told that... More

As you reach the top of the hill you get your first real view of the city. The modern monument is visable from a lot of points and as you walk in it is a landmark as you get close. I chose this stop for a bit of tai chi to recognise that from her on in it is downhill... More

Unfortunately, the morning I passed the Monte de Gozo, it was so overcast that I didn't get the view of the city. Nevertheless, as the Camino passes right by this spot and since there is an albergue here, it is a logical stop for most. Even if you're not spending the night here, take the time to view the sculptures.... More
