The Camino Frances is the most popular of all Caminos and the vast majority of all Pilgrims that reach Santiago will have walked this way! There are various popular places to start the Frances route with Sarria being by far the most popular! This is because you only have to walk the 116km to receive your Compostela (100km is the minimum!).
I hiked 774km of the French Way from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago and blogged from the Camino everyday (see below). It was a fantastic experience which left me wanting more! I have since walked the Camino Portuguese and Via de la Plata.
