A New Look at the Pilgrimage Footpath to Santiago de la Compestella...

...in Saturday's NY Times - a detailed article showing how towns along it are reacting to the huge increase in the numbers of people making the arduous journey by foot to the shrine of Saint Jacques in Santiago de la Compostella - even Angela Mirkel did a short few steps on it recently.

Walkers have boomed in spite of Europe's increasing turning away from religion.

Has anyone walked along the now well-beaten trail from France thru northweatern Spain to Santiago?

I've been to Santiago and loved the whole scene - the pious pilgrims making their last tough approach on knees, if I recall correctly them climbing a final stair case to the actual shrine.
