  • Conclusions

    Although The Cami San Juan 2 is an excellent well-marked Camino; Walking Camino’s in Spain in August isn’t the best time of year, especially if combined with a heat wave ;-)But if you chose to walk the route in either the Spring or Autumn, I am sure that it would be less demanding. The route is well marked, there are plenty of good opportunities...

  • Day 10 - Bolea to Sarsamarcuello – 15k

    We maintained our now usual routine of up very early and away for 1st light, unfortunately there was nowhere open for coffee so we pressed on through gently undulating countryside to Anies, but alas the Bar here was still not open but managed to fill our water-bottles up at the Fuente before pressing on, the scenery was now changing rapidly and...

  • Day 9 – Huesca to Bolea – 22k

    Again, to try to avoid the worst of the heat we arose early and set off at first light, The kind Hospitalaro at the Albergue had given us good info on the route out of Huesca so we had no difficulties and picked up yellow arrows and the route to Banastas, Unfortunately the shop was closed and there was no sign of the advertised bar, so we had no...

    The route leaves Tamarite de Litera up a flight of steps then crosses a canal 3 times before following it for a while before striking out across open country on a series of dirt roads which gently undulate through farmland.

    We picked up a yellow arrow opposite the Hostal Florida which directed us out of town up a steeply uphill on a narrow road, the arrows gave out and we asked directions and were directed right at a telephone mast and dropped steeply down to join the main route at the Catalunya / Aragon border. This route will be slightly longer but keeps you off the...

  • Planning

    There is little information available on “The Cami San Juan 2” so advanced planning is somewhat difficult (Hence, in part this trip report) There is one guidebook in English, The latest version of Camino de Santiago en Catalunya printed by the Junta of Catalunya available as a download on-line and has an appendix with maps and route description as...
