This App provides you with useful guides to the Way of St James by Carlos Mencos, a journalist and a well-known pilgrim himself! His guides have helped tens of thousands of pilgrims on their Way to St James. The guides have now been adapted to the App layout – and are even more comprehensive than the hardcopy of the printed guide! What will I find here that no other Apps provide? - Actual layout of the route and all possible variations, on foot and by bike, based on Google maps or on ready-to-download maps for you to use when going offline. - Detailed profile of the route, which you can navigate through. - Your position in the map and in the profile, so you do not lose your way. - Stage planner for you to organise the route your way. - Real-time alerts and situations in the Way, updated on a daily basis by the journalists of Editorial Buen Camino Publishing House. - Thousands of geo-tagged points of all types of accommodation (hotels, B&Bs, hostels, etc.), points of interest and important notices. All this information is comprehensively extended and constantly updated using pictures from our own picture database. - This App is add-free! No accommodation business, bar or restaurant pays any fee whatsoever to be featured in it. Our guides are professional top-quality and updated guides. - Detailed information on every locality, available services and real-time weather information. - Mode-specific information for pilgrims on foot and by bike. - Available in Spanish and English. - Made for you by journalist Carlos Mencos, a pilgrim himself, distinguished with the 2015 Aymeric Picaud Award for popularising the Way of St James. Which guides are available? And what is their price? The App includes for free the Baztán Route. If you like it you may purchase other guides at lower prices than the actual printed guides (and they offer much much more information!). Available routes are the following: the French Route, the Aragón Route, the Primitive Route and the Northern Route.



  • App Not working

    By Lexilewski
    I was so excited to try this app to plan my northern route, and I spent $6 to buy the Northern route within the app. It’s not downloading the files, and when I click on a city to show places to stay, it’s blank. I wrote the people behind the app (they ask you to contact them on WhatsApp), and I can see my message hadn’t been read yet. 😒 I’m hoping this is resolved quickly, so I can amend this review and say it’s an amazing app! It has such great potential.
  • WOW! This is it!

    By Dave the Pilgrim
    Third Camino, successive years, Frances, Portuguese and now Norte. Talking about need for a Google turn by turn map, better instructions. Needed some on others, really need it on Norte! Halfway through find "Buen Camino". Wow, it does everything! Getting ready, what to take, when, which one. Most importantly, when to turn, which options are there, and, an overhead satellite view that you can zoom in on and see the house you are standing next to and which way to turn! Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing state of the art navigation to the Caminos!
  • Decent App

    By Tim.Angelone
    Good info, the only issue I had was the gps locating me. I have an iPhone 7 and the location on the map was often wrong so I ended up using he post guide as well.
  • El aplicativo que te invita a caminar

    By Humaya
    Después de revisar el aplicativo tengo más confianza en hacer la travesía. La información que brinda es muy útil para el viajero que por primera vez quiere aventurarse por esas rutas.
  • Best in Camino apps

    By daidrmer
    I used this app in 2015. It was the best app then and must be even better now. Wished they had the Portuguese
  • Terrific Tool for Camino Norte

    By Mickeyuk23
    I bought a book on the Norte Camino and it doesn't have a lot of information this app has. Nice resource tool. Heading there in May 2017.

    This app has given me confidence and allayed the fears of friends and family that I'm walking off the end of the Earth. It's easy to use and has made planning really enjoyable!

  • Good Guidance

    By pammyJo25
    Very helpful in planning day to day stages with kilometer measures. The alburgues listed in each town with phone links also good. We also liked the elevation of the route. The app does freeze but may have been due to being in and out of range of Internet. Would be helpful to add more alburgue choices.
