Description

The French Way is the Jacobean itinerary with the longest historical tradition and the most internationally recognized. Its route through the north of the Iberian Peninsula was fixed with precision around 1135 in the Codex Calixtinus, a fundamental book of the Jacobean heritage.

This guide, attributed to the French cleric Aymeric Picaud, is evidence of the political-religious desire to promote the Compostela sanctuary and facilitate access to it, but it also demonstrates the existence of a demand for this type of information. When this book was written, pilgrimages reached their peak and the French Way reached its greatest affluence - if we exclude the present time - Santiago became the destination of pilgrims from all over the Christian world.
