La Gastronomy in the French Way It is something that you will enjoy as a pilgrim in the route of the French Way, not only will you enjoy its spectacular landscapes, and its endearing people; but also its famous cuisine that will make our trip as complete as possible in every way.

The lunch / dinner will be a place to get more fraternization and rapprochement with other pilgrims. This meeting of people will help you to know better what will eventually be “The true meaning of the Camino de Santiago”



We began our journey in Gastronomy on the Camino de Santiago Francés in the beautiful city of Pamplona, which is not only known worldwide for its San Fermín Festivities, but also for its varied gastronomic offer that will help us regain strength after our walk. The culture of Tapeo and its Pintxos that concentrates on the Estafeta Street or Castle Square They are a must for all who visit. Not surprisingly, both Euskadi and Navarra represent the Spanish Top of haute cuisine.



In gastronomy on the Camino de Santiago Francés we go from the bar of the Pamplonicas bars to the table of Estella. The best known dishes in the area are:

El roasted gorrín It is the typical dish. The salad will be the best company for tasty meat, all washed down with good reds or whites from the region.

As dessert Urbasa Cheese – Andia. And to facilitate digestion a glass of pacharán (aniseed with cabbage or sloes)

A dish for cold winter days is “Clavetes” or red beans accompanied with bacon. And it is in this season that the rich, but expensive Black Truffle is harvested.

In Spring, fresh asparagus or vegetable stew, accompanied by artichokes among other seasonal vegetables, are recommended.

On the other hand any time of the year is good to eat your Piquillo peppers, stuffed with meat or fish, alone as an accompaniment to meats or in salad as an entree. Scrambled eggs with mushrooms from the end of September to the end of November. Also the Lamb to Chilindrón, the “Ajoarriero” and the Poub beans.


We continue our stops at La Gastronomía on the Camino de Santiago Francés with the cities from Logroño to Burgos, being these two localities those of greater culinary attraction:


Already in Riojan lands we return to the world of Tapas and Pinchos, which are also a fundamental part of Gastronomy on the Camino de Santiago Francés, which are mainly concentrated in the bars of the Laurel and San Juan Street. We cannot opt for any particular skewer or cap, since each Bar has its specialty, which represents a good excuse to make the sentence effective “We’re leaving Skewers”. But let’s not forget, and less in La Rioja, that there is no good food without a Good Riojan Wine. Multiple Bódegas have their operations center in Logroño, where we highlight Las Bodegas del Marqués de Murrieta.

In the section of the Camino de Santiago from Burgos to León Let’s not forget to leave a little space for Lamb Roasts, jerky, chorizo


In this city of Burgos, gastronomy is concentrated around a plate “Roast suckling lamb”. Without forgetting its famous rice pudding, its cheeses: fresh, cured sheep that make this magnificent land known. The rotten pot made with the red beans of Ibeas are also a delicious delicacy in any epic of the year. All these products watered by a good wine designation of origin of the Duero will be the final touch.



We continue our walk through gastronomy on the Camino Frances de Santiago, and we enter the Leonés moor, focusing mainly on its capital, a section of the Camino de Santiago from León to O Cebreiro:


We arrived in León by the hand of being The Spanish Capital of Gastronomy 2018, what better excuse to stop on our way to Santiago de Compostela. Not surprisingly, the province has more protected food in the entire national territory.

The “Wet” and the “Romantic” Neighborhoods The best tapas bars in the city are disputed.

The queen of the Leonese rivers is trout, and its thousand varieties of preparations make it the silver king of Leonese gastronomy.

Typical sausages are the beef jerky, sausage and black pudding, and with regard to cattle, nothing better than a stew of veal, beef, ox or a roast suckling lamb. The game is represented by the meat of roe deer, wild boar, hare and quail or partridge.

Leonese pastries are made up of exquisite delicacies: “The nicanores”, “The imperial ones”, the syrupy fruits and the mantecadas. Also noteworthy are the excellent Bierzo, Valdevimbre and Los Oteros wines.

Continuing in Castillo Leonesas lands we cannot forget the famous Cocido Maragato “the only one that is eaten upside down”


And already on our final stretch towards the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, as important in our Gastronomy on the Camino de Santiago Francés, in Galician lands there can be no shortage of Cheese and octopus which will be the main delicacies that we can taste in the section of Los last 100 km of Camino de Santiago organized from Sarria.

In more detail in this section of the French Way we detail you the best restaurants where to eat and their specialties.


It stands out primarily for its famous “Tetilla Cheese”, and that it is one of the Galician cheeses with more international fame. They have a protected designation of origin. With a soft smell and flavor, at the same time creamy, it makes a good accompaniment at any time. This is what usually makes it suitable for any palate. Sliced or melted will delight anyone who tries it. Its conical, concave-convex shape makes it unmistakable to the eye. Queixerías Bama is one of the best known for the quality of its product.

Eat on the French way from sarria


Famous and known for its famous octopus, which you can not pass without tasting it in any of its famous grocery stores.

Santiago de Compostela

As a finishing touch in Gastronomy on the Camino de Santiago Francés we can go to the Old Town of the city of Santiago de Compostela, the end of our Camino de Santiago Francés. Tapas or sitting at the table the gastronomic offer of bars and restaurants will give the pilgrim the final icing on this ancient pilgrimage route!

In Galicia we cannot forget the sweetest and whimsical side for our palate at the end of our Camino de Santiago. The Tarta de Santiago and his pancakes will leave us a good end of pilgrimage.
