This comprehensive guidebook covers the 730km Way of St James pilgrim route from Le Puy-en-Velay in central France to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the Pyrenees.
As well as giving step by step directions the book also provides information on places to visit along the way, the history of the pilgrimage and details of the facilities such as shops, bars, restaurants and accommodation.
