My colleague and co-coordinator of the Northern California Chapter, Guy Joaquin, recently did a presentation on the Camino Primitivo. I think he did a fantastic job! It answers all these burning questions:
Why is it called the Primitivo? How many days does it take? Is it really the hardest route? How much does it cost? Can I do it for my first Camino?
Get the answers to these and other frequently asked questions about the Camino Primitivo in this informative virtual presentation. Guy covers the nuts and bolts of this historically significant route. He is joined by his friend Sue Lopez who opted to walk the Hospitales alternative route. They both share some “insider” tips to help with your future planning. It runs 54 minutes, and is chock full of Camino goodness. Enjoy!
Watching Guy’s presentation brought back great memories of my own experience on the Camino Primitivo a few years ago. Sue’s take on it makes me want to walk this Camino again, but take the alternative Hospitales route. I also learned about the Camino Verde alternative which meets up with the Francés in Sobrado. I was a little shocked at the influx of crowds and bicigrinos after the merge with the Camino Frances in Melide. Apparently, the Verde option merges with the Francés just one day before reaching Santiago.
