Fresco Tours’ very own Cervantes and Shakespeare

We’re celebrating World Book Day with two wonderful authors who just happen to work with us!

Héctor Oliva Camps (aka. Miguel de Cervantes)

Hector was born and lives in Barcelona, and perhaps inspired by the greatest Spanish writer of all times, Miguel de Cervantes, decided to put ink to paper and write about what he loves best: The Camino de Santiago!

Héctor has recently published The Camino de Santiago: 150 Questions and a Puzzle to Solve, a wonderful book to prepare you for your upcoming Camino de Santiago. For more books by Héctor, visit his Amazon author page: Héctor on Amazon

Héctor is a full-time guide on the Camino de Santiago, so look out for him if you happen to be in Galicia or the Basque Country, he’ll be happy to sign your book.

Jeffery William Barrera (aka. William Shakespeare)

Jeffery was born in New York and lives in Madrid. His Anglo-Saxon roots may explain his passion for the Bard with whom he shares his name. Like his colleague, Jeffery’s passion for the Camino has led him to write and publish several guidebooks.

Jeffery is the author of the Survival Guides for the Camino and of the major art museums in Madrid. For more books by Jeffery, visit his website:
