The Camino Francés, the most popular route of the Way of St. James, starts at the French village Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port close to the Spanish border. The way crosses the Pyrenees to Roncesvalles. Then it goes through four Spanish autonomous regions: Navarra, La Rioja, Castilla y León and Galicia. The major cities of Pamplona, Logroño, Burgos and Léon are passed until the destination of Santiago de Compostela is reached. There, according to legend, the remains of St. James, one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, are held.
