Camino Statistics

While some—perhaps even most—might look on this kind of information as being sleep-inducing, there will be others who will find this interesting. And there is the possibility that it might even be useful for deciding what time of year to walk. Perhaps which route to pick. Click on the graphs to bring up full scale versions.

The first six graphs present data obtained from the website of the Oficina de Acogida de Peregrinos (Pilgrims' Welcome Office) and we update these from time to time. The last two graphs are based on American Pilgrims credential request records.
