    This is a much longer, but also much more interesting alternative to the asphalt of the Camino de Santiago. It is a two days hike (or a very long one day hike). You can find the second part here: https://www.wikiloc.com...

    Ottima traccia ... sola nota negativa ... abitacione double a Soto la Marina 140-200€ non x pellegrini !
