Walk with us through eleven centuries of history, legends and traditions.
The Way of St. James, often known by its Spanish name, El Camino de Santiago, is the pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela (north-western Spain), where legend has it that the remains of the apostle, Saint James the Great, are buried. Walk through eleven centuries of history, legends and traditions, and along the way learn of the many miracles that have occurred on the trail. As you add your footprints to the millions who have travelled before you – including such legendary pilgrims as St. Francis of Assisi, Charlemagne, and Pope John Paul II – you become part of the Camino’s ongoing history.
Follow the yellow arrows and scallop shell signposts that point the way through forests, farmland, medieval villages and hamlets, where cows meander down country lanes and locals wish you a Buen Camino! You are not a tourist any more, but a pilgrim on a spiritual journey. Enjoy the camaraderie on the Camino and meet fellow peregrinos from around the world, all wearing the scallop shell symbolic of St. James.
On our Camino de Santiago trips you will walk the most beautiful and historic sections of the Camino from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Santiago de Compostela. Like thousands of pilgrims before you, celebrate your safe arrival by embracing the statue of St. James behind the altar of the spectacular Cathedral in Santiago.
