santiago-de-compostela-cathedral-spainThe Camino de Santiago de Compostela, also known in English as The Way of St James, is a collection of old pilgrimage routes. The final destination is Santiago de Compostela in the north west of Spain. Here you will find the finest examples of architecture in all of Europe. For more than 1000 years pilgrims have been walking along the Camino de Santiago. They follow the journey where St. James’s remains were carried by boat from Jerusalem to northern Spain where he was buried on the site of what is now the city of Santiago de Compostela. (Walks each day along the Way of St James will not be strenuous, but expect to cover 100 120 km in the week. Coach and back-up car with group all along the route).
