Camino de Santiago (route descriptions) Pilgrimage routes in Europe The Way of St. James through Europe The Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of St. James, extends from different countries of Europe, and even North Africa, on its way to Santiago de Compostela and Finisterre. The local authorities try to restore many of the ancient routes, even those used in a limited period, in the interest of tourism. Here follows an overview of the main routes of the modern-day pilgrimage.

The French Way (Spanish: Camino Francés) is the most popular of the routes. The Routes of Northern Spain is a network of four Christian pilgrimage routes in northern Spain. The Camino Primitivo splits off from the Norte south of Villaviciosa, near Oviedo, and spans 355 km (this includes roughly 40 km on the Camino Francés at the end). The route passes through San Sebastian, Guernica, Bilbao, and Oviedo. The following routes to Santiago can be traced on the Iberian Peninsula.
