List With The Most Dangerous Points And Sections Of Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago has become one of the most attractive plans to do in Spain in recent years. With an improvement in the infrastructures and a wide campaign from the different institutions, more and more people are encouraged to go on foot, by bicycle or, even on horseback , from a point on the Peninsula to the Galician capital. For this reason, before setting course, it is advisable to be extremely vigilant in many aspects, where the most dangerous stretches of traffic that can affect pedestrians and cyclists are of particular importance.

The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) has reached an agreement in recent days with the Xunta de Galicia to make the Camino de Santiago a safer place free of traffic accidents. Through an interactive guide , both institutions have advice when preparing the trip , but also a map with the most dangerous points according to the different official itineraries.

And it is that the fact that traditionally on foot and by bicycle are the two modalities most agreed by the millions of walkers who walk the Spanish roads every year, also causes that it is necessary to be extremely vigilant about accidents. Pedestrians and cyclists are the two most vulnerable groups , which the DGT always tries to protect and raise awareness about responsible traffic when they are surrounded by cars and trucks.

The DGT warns of the sections and points where caution must be exercised, but concentrates the major warnings on those of risk
For this, more than 7,000 kilometers have been analyzed that complete the eleven different roads that pass through Spain and where there are intersections and parallel routes with very dangerous areas.
