Camino de Santiago (Road to Santiago) an ancient path who pilgrims from all over the world have walked for centuries, following the various paths on their way to Santiago de Compostela and the tomb of St. James.
Today whether walking the Camino for religious reason, to find yourself or simply get back to nature, the Camino de Santiago is a trip of a life time, a unique experience that inspires many even after the journey is over.
There is many paths to follow to Santiago de Compostela but the most commonly is the Camino Frances or French Road. The starting point is Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port on the France side of the Pyrenees and finish in Santiago de Compostela in Spain 764 km (478 miles) further.
Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port (literally meaning "Saint John at the foot of the mountain pass" in French) is a commune in the Pyrenees-Atlantiques department in south-western France. The town is also the old capital of the traditional Basque province of Lower Navarre and starting point for the Camino Frances.

This is indeed a very pleasant town and you have found a good view here, reminding me of our visit here fourteen years ago. I remember standing on on the bridge here, watching the trout swimming in the river below.
