In addition to what we have listed, there are obviously numerous other differences, which can be appreciated only by following the two routes. As we mentioned in the previous points, the differences do not necessarily mean that one route is better than the other: for those who like to walk in solitude and silence the Via Francigena is an ideal route, especially in certain sections, while those who look on travelling on foot as an opportunity to get to know new people, will prefer the Spanish walk.
Those who appreciate the adventurous aspect of the journey could be annoyed by the sometimes excessive use of signposts in Spain. Every now and again it is nice to trust your instincts in finding the right way, or to ask for advice from a person you meet along the way. Also so as to remind yourself that hiking is a metaphor of life, and therefore it is nice to trust sometimes in yourself, sometimes in others and every now and again to escape from the tracks that someone has programmed for us in order to tackle the unforeseen events that are the very essence of life.
