The exact locations of Cities, Towns, Villages and Hamlets are based on the locations that Openstreetmap or Google Maps gives. Usually this is somewhere in the center.

The distances in the table and on the map are an approximation!! This is because the actual routes from the Way of Saint James to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the Way of Saint James is the shortest distance to the Way of Saint James in a direct line.

The distances between two POIs (point 1 and point 2) are calculated as follows
Total distance = Distance point 1 to nearest point on the Way of Saint James + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the Way of Saint James + Distance between the two nearest points on the Way of Saint James

If points 1 and 2 are close to the Way of Saint James, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.
If one of the two points is situated further from Way of Saint James, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.

It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the Way of Saint James and from the Way of Saint James to the end of a stage! This may e.g. by zooming in on the map and checking for a path or road from the starting point to the Way of Saint James and from the Way of Saint James to the end point.
