    Walking to Viana.

    by Oleg_D. Written Feb 17, 2015

    There are different ways how to get Viana. There is local airport of Logrono and you can arrive here by airplane from Madrid. You can arrive by bus from Logrono or Pamplona. But majority of visitors are the pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela and they arrive here on their own feet. Some of them come from Pamplona, some from Saint Jean Pied de Port and some even from Paris, Cologne and Worms. When they come here they approach Viana from the north east fro Torres del Rio. They see wonderful valleys, mountains and vineries of Navarre. And first that they can see in the city is the church of Santa Maria. Church greets them.

    Walking from Viana

    by Oleg_D. Written Feb 17, 2015

    Pilgrims are passing through the city of Viana and continue their way from Viana, Navarre to Logrono, La Rioja. If Church of Santa Maria greets them when they enter Viana, ruins of San Pedro church wish them good luck and “Buen Camino” when they are leaving the city. If you have a look at old photo you will find they one hundred years ago belfry of San Pedro yet existed. Time is powerful destroyer.

    Take the bus along the Camino

    by globetrott Updated Aug 1, 2012

    Yes, there is a busline as well that follows almost all of the Camino, sometimes quite close and sometimes in a short distance of maybe 3-4km. So you will always be able to make a break from hiking and can still follow the Camino in a much easier way than to hike in the rain or what-ever.
    Buses are very cheap in Spain, and they have funny prices like 1 euro and 8 cents for a distance of 1 hour driving. The bigger problem is how to find the bus-station ???
    the bus-station in Viana is at a place, next to the waste-baskins and right in the middle of that zebra-crossing, where that nice lady is waiting in my main picture. There have been absolutely NO signposts for a bus-station in direction of Santo Domingo de la Calcada (while into the other direction there was a signpost).
    I asked some local and he told me, where to wait and he also took me to a bar, where they had a schedule for the buses, BUT that schedule was outdated, as we found out the other morning, when we had to wait 30 minutes in vain for the bus. Other passangers told me, they got the right bus-infos at the tourist-information !
    Buses are leaving quite early in the morning:
    at 07.45am, then again once again untill noon and maybe once again in the evening !

    When you walk the Camino to Viana

    by globetrott Updated Aug 1, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The old city of Viana was built on top of a small hill but all of its surrounding are quite flat to walk through, when you are walking / hiking the Camino / Jakobsweg / St. James Way !
    Most of the tracks of the Camino are away from the main trafic here and just in case that you decide to take the bus instead of hiking on a bad day, or when you are in a hurry: there is a busstation as well in Viana - see my other transportation-tip !
    In Viana you will find a lot of great facilities for peregrinos / pilgrims along the Camino: lots of cafes, restaurants, albergues and ordinary hotels as well as private B&Bs.
    In my last picture: A peregrino walking the Camino with a wagon to push.
    I doubt very much that this is a good alternative to a rucksack, but in his case he had a rucksack as well and obviously he also had campinggear for a family on that wagon. I met him again on my last day in Santiago !
