The Village To village Guide to The Camino santiago
This is undoubtedly the best and fittingly also the most expensive of Guides on the pilgrimage to Santiago.
The guide takes its inspiration and is dedicated to the work of Elias Valifla Sampedro (1929-1989), who was parish priest of 0 Cebreiro and Doctor of Canon Law of the University of Salamanca, a Scholar and an expert on Compostelan studies. The priest devoted his life to the study of the pilgrimage to Compostela and the publishers have worked hard to bring out this guide for the benefit of all pilgrims.
This new Pilgrim's Guide incorporates the results of thirty years of research and of countless personal journeys along the Camino de Santiago. With the latest update the book is a clear expression of the current situation of the Camino. The format of the Guide and the organisation of its contents are the results of the desire to meet several objectives. The material is divided into four parts: a preliminary section and three others: the guide to the route, with maps, directions for the walker and a succinct commentary; historical and cultural notes on places of particular interest; and a final section on accommodation, associations, etc.
This guide will help the pilgrim to make his journey safely and in the true spirit of the pilgrimage. The size and ease of handling of this volume are also considered to be improvements over the author's earlier guides, and incorporate the suggestions made by pilgrims since 1985.

"I found this book indespensible to my pilgrimage"
Mary Huston writing in New WorldUsed this book to walk 800km From St Jean France to Santiago, 28 Mar 2004
I have just finished my Pilgrimage - In the five weeks I used this book to walk the track to Santiago in Spain - I grew quite fond of it - The 220 page book is ring bound and fits compactly into my rucksack.
A Reviewer On Amazon (The First edition of the book)
"Out of the plethora of guides on the Camino Santiago, this is the guide we recommend as we have found it has for a number of years been widely praised by all who have used it. The much reviewed first edition has been replaced with a new 2nd Edition making this so far the most up to date book on the Camino"
This book places the pilgrimage both in its historical context and is also indespinsible as a guide for the modern day pilgrim.
