At a glance

Camino del Norte, the Compostela route which travels along the ocean ... the most beautiful and solitary of the paths to Santiago, it has kept a unique natural and cultural heritage.

The first week begins with a beautiful coastal route between Hendaye and Deba: beaches, cliffs, fishing ports, vineyards or meadows overlooking the ocean ... the stage to San Sebastian and its famous "concha". Then the Camino penetrates into remote lands, passes Gernika and finally arrives at Bilbao: this declining town has made a remarkable conversion and in a short time has become a major cultural centre, principally thanks to the Guggenheim Museum.
