Camino de Santiago is the name for the pilgrimage routes that lead to the shrine of St James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. Join the tens of thousands of Christian pilgrims and many others who make their way each year to the shrine, where the remains of the saint are said to be buried. While most pilgrims will walk or cycle all the way from their home to the shrine, you can join in for as little or as much of the routes as you like. Take time to talk to others along the way to find out their reasons for undertaking this spiritual and historical journey.
