The Camino de Santiago de Compostela is one of the world's oldest pilgrimages. For the millions of people, rich and poor who have walked to the tomb of the Apostle, Saint James - the pilgrimage started at their front door. During the Middle Ages, the Camino was responsible for the largest movement of people in Europe. They believe the pilgrimage would shorten their time in purgatory.
We will follow the route Frances, a path that thousands have walked for over a 1,000 years through the historic towns and breathtaking countryside of Northern Spain. Gothic cathedrals, medieval monasteries and miles of beautiful rural scenery make this section of the ancient route so popular.
Like those before us we will follow the symbol of the scallop shell. The grooves of the shell represent the many different routes pilgrims may take to reach Santiago.
The route was nearly lost but in the past couple of decades a growing body of literature around the Camino sparked a resurgence of interest. Today the pilgrimage is not only for the religious, but for anyone who seeks self knowledge, or a respite from modern life, or a physical and mental challenge. Whatever your reason, you will discover like so many before you how the 'Camino Provides'.
