Latest updates from the Camino Francés

Updated July 2021

My name is Gerald Kelly. I'm the author of several guides to and books about the Caminos de Santiago. I've been walking Caminos since 2004 and have accumulated over 13,000km of walking (or about 500 days).

The apps for Android and iPhone

In 2020 I published a new set of apps for the Camino with all the information from the printed book plus interactive, zoomable maps. They're available for Android and iPhone (Click here)

This update info appears in the apps too.

COVID-19 Open Albergues

This information was collected by contacting albergues individually between 24 July and early August 2021 and from walking Pamplona to Santiago in July and August.

The author cannot be held responsible for incorrect information or information which has changed since it was posted here.

I will continue to update this page as I receive new information. If you spot any mistakes or anything that's changed please le me know, see our Contact page.
