About this app

Now in their 12th year as a mobile app, and their 14th online, the Wise Pilgrim Guides are the go-to source of up-to-date information on the Camino de Santiago.

The app is updated regularly with new content and new features and offers you the ability to leave tips for pilgrims following behind you.

This guide covers the Camino Portugués along the Central, the Coastal, and the Variante Espiritual routes. It has been redesigned and now works almost exclusively offline (to share your comments with others 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.

Accommodation Directory:
A full directory of Albergues, camping, hotels, pensions, paradors, and cases rurales. Over 900 in total, with special attention to those that can be booked online.

Stageless Guide:
No more "stage anxiety" or guide created bottlenecks.

Maps:
Offline and online versions of a beautiful topographical may will give you a good view of the terrain ahead.

Photos:
Photos of albergues, monuments and other points of interest along the way. Currently 900+ images and growing.

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 East to West. One complete elevation, from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago, 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. No registration necessary.

¡Buen Camino and thank you for your support!

Useful app, but a few things could fixed or improved. 1. map view is lagging with pins turned on. pins are on by default w/no way to change the setting. 2. the app crashes if i activate it twice from the background. 3. auto zooming doesn't work most of the time when i open the map view. 4. in the stage list view there's no way to automatically find my current location via geolocation (like in Buen Camino app)

So this is the second camino I use wise pilgrims on. My experience on the Portuguese 4 years ago was excellent. I'm now on the 2nd year on the norte and I wish they would go through the comments and integrate changes and updates. Eg, a bunch of places (Celorios, Villahormes etc) don't show that there are Albergues now - meaning I often didn't click on the place when planning my stages. Generally, the app is great. I love the alternate routes, saved a lot of asphalt and got spectacular views

Thank you for leaving a review. I wanted to add that to be considered an Albergue the facility must offer some form of shared accommodation, otherwise it is just a Pension with the word Albergue added as bait. AFAIK there are none in Celorio. The albergue in Villahormes likewise proved unreliable as an option as they are not always open.

very outdated information. missing many albergues that are open while including ones that are closed. wouldn't recommend purchasing this app. google maps does a far better job

What's new

Big update for the early Spring as pilgrims are already walking.

It adds 123km of alternate paths suitable for bikes or pilgrims on foot in very muddy conditions.

This update contains many small bug fixes (albergue closing times), better visibility of maps using dark mode, and a critical fix that caused the app to crash when you tried to auto-scroll to your closest location.
