The French Way is the most popular among the several available for this journey. The ancient route through Santiago de Compostela in Galicia is the one originally used for this pilgrimage. It runs from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, on the French side of the to Roncesvalles on the Spanish side. It then runs 780 more kilometers through the cities of Santiago de Compostela, Pamplona, Logroño, Burgos and Léon. Typically a hike throughout the route of the "Camino Francés" takes at least four weeks. Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port is linked to Bayonne by railway, and If you are coming from the other side of the Pyrenees, a bus ride is available to as far as Roncesvalles from Pamplona by bus. Credentials are obtainable at the pilgrims' office on Rue de la Citadelle or in Roncesvalles.
