The Pilgrims’ Path
The history of the Camino de Santiago dates back to the 9th Century, when the tomb of the evangelical apostle St. James was discovered in what is today Santiago de Compostela. Since then, pilgrims from all over the world have walked St. James' Way, originally seeking forgiveness for their sins, and today often just spending time on a journey of personal growth. This challenging experience of the mind, body, and soul does require significant physical effort as you walk through forests and along busy roads for many miles each day. Its rewards are intangible, yet priceless with the opportunity to enjoy nature, meditate, and challenge your limits through the beautiful rural areas of northern Spain.
