St. John points the way to pilgrims

Begin the Way of St. James (Spanish: El Camino de Santiago, El Camino; Galician: O Camiño de Santiago, Ruta Xacobea; French: Chemin de St-Jacques, German: Jakobsweg)

This is a popular starting point, if not the most popular starting point for those who are beginning the Way of St. James. Referred to as pilgrims (pèlerins in France and peregrinos in Spanish), many international travelers choose this as the starting point in France that is closest to the Spanish border. Pilgrims begin by reporting in to the Pilgrim's Office to obtain their credencial to begin their journey.
