No account necessary. No hidden costs.
Now in their 5th year as a mobile app, and their 11th online, the Wise Pilgrim Guides are the go-to source of up-to-date information on the Camino de Santiago.
This guide covers the Camino del Salvador, or San Salvador as it is sometimes called. The route runs North from León to the capital of Asturias, Oviedo.
Redesigned for the newest devices and now works almost exclusively offline. To use the map features, or to share your comments with other guide owners, will require a data connection. As more an more albergues share their WiFi this becomes less of an issue, and the guide will tell you which ones offer WiFi.
Albergue Directory. A full directory of Albergues, and notes on which towns have alternative accommodation like camping, hotels, pensions, and casas rurales.
Stage Guide. Full directory of villages along the way, in the order in which you pass them, with accurate listings of what services are available.
Location Aware. Every location is geo-located. Devices with GPS enabled will display actual distance from every point (albergue, church, city, etc.) within the app. Devices without GPS will instead show measured distances between points.
Photos. Photos of albergues, monuments and other points of interest along the way are currently viewable while online from within the app.
Maps. If you have a data connection, or are connected to wifi, you can view the locations of every point on a map. Unfortunately, this feature is unavailable without a connection.
Scrollable Elevation Map. This one is hard to show with just a screenshot, but the elevation that appears at the top of every city page scrolls South to North. One complete elevation, from León to Oviedo, uninterrupted by page folds.
Comments. Albergue closed early for the season? Have a restaurant that you want to share, or perhaps one to warn others about? Every location in the app gives you the opportunity to leave a comment and to read the comments left by others. These comments are also used to keep the app up to date. No registration necessary.
¡Buen Camino and thank you for your support!
