Camino in August 2010 by bike ¿possible or not?

by vyriato

We would like to make Camino de Santiago from Roncesvalles to Santiago in August this year by bike.

Unfortunately, it is not possible for us (2 people) to go in other less crowded dates.

As 2010 is Holy Year in Santiago, we are afraid there will be so many people making the Camino. And, as we are going by bike, we have no preference in "Albergues", as people going on walk are accomodated first.

Do you think is it reasonably possible to try to make the trip, or would it be too risky and we would probably have problem to find a place to sleep?

Thank you very much.

Hello,

From the Santiago websites it does look like there is a lot more people visiting Santiago this summer.

Go onto http://www.caminodesantiago.me and post your question there, experts on the site will be able to fill you in on the Alberges.

Best wishes

I did the Camino in August some years ago. My recommendation is to have a tent for two people and sleeping bags. You can use the showers and other facilities in "albergues". Along the Camino there are a lot of campings and good sites to put the tent up. But this year, and mainly in August, it will be very difficult to find a place to sleep in "albergues"

Ordre de St Jacques

by breughel

A l'origine, cet ordre se composait de Galiciens qui, vers 1160, se préoccupaient de l'hébergement des pèlerins sur la route menant à Compostelle. Les uns étaient des chanoines, les autres formaient une confrérie de laïcs, chevaliers valeureux.
Leur action militaire commença loin de Santiago, puisqu'on leur confia la protection de Caceres, en Estremadura, tout juste reconquise sur les musulmans. Ils fondèrent alors un ordre de chevalerie: Caballeros de la Espada, « Chevaliers de l'Épée » en souvenir de l'épée brandie par l'apôtre saint Jacques le matamore sous le patronage duquel ils se placèrent.
Au XVIe siècle, l'Ordre devenu très puissant possédait une centaine de commanderies, autant de châteaux, une trentaine de couvents, hôpitaux, deux cent églises,villes et villages, et l’université à Salamanque. Le siège de l'ordre s'établit à Ucles, dans la Province de Cuenca

Une branche de l'ordre de Santiago groupe les clercs, sous la direction d'un Grand Prieur, suivant la règle assez douce des chanoines de Saint Augustin, Les chevaliers de Santiago, demeurés laïques, forment la seconde branche de l'ordre et peuvent se marier. C'est la douceur de cette règle de St Augustin qui explique le succès de l'ordre.
Les Frères portaient l'habit blanc, avec sur le côté gauche de la poitrine, la célèbre épée de satin rouge et une coquille. Ils étaient environ 400 et assemblèrent plus de 1000 "lances" pour leur participation à la célèbre bataille de Las Navas de Tolosa en 1212 qui mit fin à la domination Almohade.

En 1592, le roi Philippe II incorpore l'Ordre à la Couronne d'Espagne.
Depuis cette époque, les rois d’Espagne ont conservé les titres et dignité de grand maître et administrateur de l’ordre qui est ainsi placé sous la protection de la couronne.

Galician cuisine

by lomi about San Clemente

This is a typical Galician restaurant specialising in seafood and fish, fish stew and "filloas" (Galician crepes).

Closed on Mondays. We ordered one of the local seafood specialities; which was
variado de mariscos , a big platter of fish, prawns, crab, and barnacles between two, which arrived with french fries and a small salad. With a glass of wine or two and a basket of bread this was ample.

Monasterio de San Martín Pinario

by breughel

This monastery of St Martin is one of Spain's largest religious buildings. The main façade, in the Baroque style like most of the rest of the work, is 100 m long. It is faced by the spectacular north facade of the cathedral and the small ornate garden that lies in front of it. The name Pinario comes from the pines which were there when the first chapel was founded in the 11th century.
Four Doric columns are the frame of the door and the image of Saint Benedict is in the centre. The upper structure consists of a coat of arms from Spain. The image of Saint Martin from Tours on horseback sharing his cloak with a poor person, who represents Christ, was added by Fernando de Casas in the 17th century.
The convent is now the seat of the seminars of all the orders of Galicia. It also accommodates a museum and the School of Theology.
Generally, the premises are rented to students except for summer when the monastery becomes a hotel for pilgrims.

Colexio de San Xerome

by Shabu

The huge dimensions of the rest of the buildings on the Praza do Obradoiro emphasise the humble appearance and the unusual charm of the Colexio de San Xerome, where the University Rector has his office. The facade, a beautiful example of late-Romanesque architecture, originates from an old hospital.
