When it comes to Spanish walking there are few people more knowledgeable than my Spanish friend Juan Holgado. I had fallen in love with Spain when I walked across it in 2011 on the way to Budapest so when Juan suggested that I have a look at the GR1 I jumped at the idea. Juan has just about walked every Spanish long distance trail and rates the GR1 as the countries best. I did it for the first time in 2012 and after subsequent trips in 2013 and 2014 have now written the first comprehensive guide to the route for Cicerone. This page is designed to answer some basic questions about Spain's best long distance walk and keep readers up to date with its development.
