My Camino

the journey to yourself

Food tips

A basic pilgrim menu or menú del dia starts from around €8. Once you go off the set menu costs rise out of all proportion. Tapas (small snacks available from many bars and cafés throughout the day) or the more generous raciones are appetising but expensive.

food tips

Vegetarians have a really hard time as Spain, which is firmly carnivorous, has little understanding of the needs of the vegetariano/a. Vegetable soup is often made on meat stock and don’t be surprised to find chunks of ham in your cheese omelette unless you are very specific! Breakfast equates to café and croissantes.

Another cultural challenge posed to northern European and North American pilgrims are meal times. Lunch almuerzo (or simply comer) is the main meal and rarely ends before 15:00 and dinner cena doesn’t usually start before 20:00.

It helps to think laterally (tapas), to speak clearly (en español) and to prepare meals of your choice and time in the hostels from provisions bought in the local shop mercado.

Nice new design and useful functions. My favorite app so far.

“Best pilgrim support application that a pilgrim can get for the journey through the Spanish countryside!”

“It was really nice that my family could follow my way on the way. I recommend it to everyone who is planning to walk the Camino de Santiago.”
