about the Camino de Santiago

“The Camino” as it is known throughout the world, is also called The Way of St. James. Legend has it that the body of the apostle James is buried here, at Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. For more than 1,000 years, religious and non-religious alike have undertaken this pilgrimage for every reason imaginable.

The Camino became even more popular after a 2010 film called, “The Way”, by Emilio Estevez and featuring Martin Sheen debuted to huge acclaim.

The most well-known route to Santiago de Compostela takes place along the Camino Frances from St. Jean Pied de Port through the well-known Spanish cities of Pamplona, Burgos, León and Astorga before reaching the magnificent Cathedral of Santiago, where the body of James rests.

There are an estimated 400,000+ people who undertake the Camino annually according to the Spanish government.
