Preparing for a pilgrimage can be a daunting process, whether it is your first or tenth time on the Camino.

From the question of what to bring, or perhaps more importantly what to leave behind, to understanding what accommodation is available and how physically fit you need to be.

To help with this process, we have compiled some practical notes on preparation. Including a suggested check list for packing (with Spanish translations), information about when to go and how to get there.

We hope that it helps support your preparation for the outer journey. For thoughts on preparation for the inner journey please see our Self-Review
