About this Event

Tour highlights

The Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of St. James, is the ancient Catholic pilgrimage route to the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain.

Legend has it that the bones of the apostle St. James were brought by boat from Jerusalem to northern Spain and buried under the site of what is now the city of Santiago de Compostela.

The Camino trail has been an important Christian pilgrimage route for over 1000 years and was considered to be one of the three pilgrimage routes on which all sins could be forgiven.

There are many routes to Santiago de Compostela, starting from a variety of points, from as far away as Belgium to as close as 200km from Santiago if you are cycling.

It has an even more ancient history that predates its Christian heritage. Before this, the route was thought to have significance for pagan people who populated the Iberian peninsula, and later the Celts who settled in northwestern Spain.

We pass by some of the best examples of the mega stone structures, and the remains of ancient Celtic villages are visible along the route.

The Romans conquered Spain and the main route followed an earlier Roman trade route to Finisterre (the ‘end of the world’ in Latin) and was a place of immense spiritual significance.
