Google Maps the Camino de Santiago

El Camino de Santiago Mapplet
Every year tens of thousands of people undertake the pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago across northern Spain. Their destination is the Santiago de Compostela.

Svmapplets have produced a Google Maps mapplet of the pilgrimage mapping hostels and monuments along the route. The map features two drop down menus, one for the hostels and one for monuments. The map uses scallop shells (the symbol of the Camino de Santiago) as the map markers.

Due to this week's huge update to Street View in Spain it is possible to now view most of the hostels and mapped monuments in Street View.
