Hello, I just wanted to leave a note for whoever else might be interested in editing this page. After doing the Camino de Santiago in 2007, I thought a wiki-style guidebook would be preferable to carrying a bulky travel book whose information might be limited or out-of-date.

I'd like to encourage other Peregrinos to make additions here, whether they did the Camino in the past or are doing it currently. I would love to see corrections and additions from people live, as they are doing the camino!

Buen Camino! --LBP 11:28, 15 September 2009 (EDT)

Merge in Camino de Santiago?[edit]

That article is at the head of European Itineraries, but hasn't been edited since May 24th, 2010 (not counting my edit). Is that fine? I would then make it a redirect. --(WT-en) rfilmyer 17:03, 1 May 2011 (EDT)

Yes, it should be a redirect, --(WT-en) ClausHansen 17:12, 1 May 2011 (EDT)

The French way[edit]

I think the linking to Routes to Santiago de Compostela from France and French Way is quite confusing, especially when the articles themselves do not explain what exactly they are about (the latter also shares some copied info with this article). As I understand it the latter tries to cover the route from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port (just across the border to Spain), while the former should handle the routes to there or Col du Somport (from Paris, Vézelay, Le Puy and Arles). All three articles should be slightly rewritten to reflect that intention (unless some other solution is better). --LPfi (talk) 16:01, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

Some of the edits seen here are lifted directly from For example, I did a search on "The Silver Route was the main path used by the Christian pilgrims during the Muslim domination of Spain." and turned up There is no good reason to use the phrase "during the Muslim domination of Spain", which reads strangely in English. How about "This was the most popular route during the period when Muslims ruled Spain"?

Meanwhile, it is essential for all copy-pasted content to be deleted. User:Marcosgonzalez, since you added the content, could you please fix the copyright problems? If not, anyone else will need to either fix the problem or just remove the text in question to save time. Ikan Kekek (talk) 16:37, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Also the map seems to be the same as on that site. Are you the author, as claimed on the description page at Wikimedia Commons? Otherwise it probably has to be deleted. --LPfi (talk) 09:00, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
The simplest thing to do is just revert to the last known good version. Would you support that, or is there another clean alternative you're confident has no copyright violation? Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:14, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
As the person does not seem to answer, reverting seems to be the easiest solution. I'd not support deleting though; the changes can be incorporated in rephrased form and I am not terribly worried about small copivios hidden in the history. I filed a deletion request at Commons for the maps and elevation profiles. --LPfi (talk) 11:41, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
What do you mean by not supporting deleting? Deleting the copyvio from the history? That's unnecessary, I think? I thought we rarely deleted article histories unless the article started as a copyvio, necessitating the deletion of the article. The only exceptions I can think of had to do with doxxing or extremely obscene or threatening language or usernames. Anyway, I will make the reversion. Ikan Kekek (talk) 12:10, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
OK. That is what I think is the right way to do it. I have been involved in discussions (on sv-wp) where some think copyvios need to be deleted; I just wanted to make sure. --LPfi (talk) 15:12, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure, but I think this has been our practice. Ikan Kekek (talk) 15:26, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
Good. It is on sv-wp. --LPfi (talk) 05:49, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
