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, French, Italian and German. - 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? Right now you can download the Camino de Baztán - Baztán Route Guide – in full and at no cost! And the Camino de Santiago Francés - French Route, the Camino Aragonés - Aragon Route, North Way - Camino del Norte, Camino Portugués from Tui the Camino Primitivo - Primitive Route and the Route extension to Fisterra-Muxia.

Very helpful information.

This app is the most comprehensive one I have found about the El Camino de Santiago. I’m about to walk for the first time (probably not the last) and the answers to questions have been so helpful. Highly recommend.

So so helpful

I used this app everyday on the Camino. It was so convenient and kept me on the right way.

I would have been lost without this app. Thanks so much I had the experience of a lifetime thanks to this mapping service. Solo and 65 and very dependent on Buen Camino! ❤️

Great app!

Great app and great support from the developer. The only one I use on the camino.

Very good and thorough

Full of all the information you need for the Camino. Some information isn’t always up to date, but it has everything you need for a safe trip. Best Camino app by far!

Essential companion

This is by far the best Camino app for ease of use and depth of information regarding the route and sites. Best of all, the accommodation list offers places to stay where they love pilgrims.

Best maps and lodging info for Camino Frances

I used this almost exclusively while I walked the Camino Frances September 1-2022-October 5,2022. It kept me from getting lost on so many occasions! When I had to change up my stays I used the recommendations listed for Albergues. Fantastic app!

What a helpful tool

I used this Buen Camino on my Camino from St Jean to Santiago. I did not book any hostels ahead, I used the app to investigate the upcoming villages and walked up to the hostels and got a bed every night. The map with the yellow dot showing my location bailed me out a couple of times when I got turned around or I went off trail to see tourists items. The yellow dot shows your current location and the app shows the Camino path, this was handy to see if I was north or south. The app also helps plan the next day distance and planned stops. I will be doing the Portugués from Lisbon and plan to use Buen Camino again.. I highly recommend this app!!!

Love the locator dot

Thx for the hard work on this helpful app! So appreciated so many times. It would make it even more fabulous if the app could find you faster. Every time I opened the map it toome all the way back to St. Jean and it was hard to read city names. Thanks again!
