St Jean Pied de Port, France – pt 1

Before setting off, we enjoyed light strolling in and around Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port. Just 5 miles from the Spanish border, this French village is also the primary starting point for the French Way, or Camino Francés, which has become the most popular option for travelling the Camino de Santiago. However, due to the village’s location in the Pyrenees in French Basque country and the many shops, restaurants and hotels – it’s a magnet for tourism!

(St-Jean-Pied-de-Port specializes in fromage de brebis, which is an Ossau-Iraty cheese, local trout and pipérade omelette with peppers and Bayonne ham. Perfect for hikers and tourists alike!)   Above left, our lodging at the Hotel Ramuntcho.
