The way of St.James

The way of St.James 1Otherwise known as “El camino de Santiago” in Spanish, “Chemin de St. Jacques” in French and “the way of St.James” in English, this extremely well-known way or path is not exactly “one”. There are actually many different routes from many different countries, including France, Spain and Portugal, which all lead to the end destination; the shrine of St. James the Great (the apostle) which is to be found in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, in the north west of Spain. The tradition says that the saint’s remains are buried there.

The path is popular with people from all over the world for many different reasons. Some people are led by a spiritual interest, others by culture or because they have set themselves a personal challenge and others see it as part of a great adventure.
