Camino de Santiago

camino

The most famous and the longest route that goes in the north of Spain is Camino de Santiago. You might also heard about it as St James Way, as it‘s the pilgrimage route to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Northwestern Spain, where it‘s believed that the remains of the apostle Saint James are buried.

Walkers from all around the world gather not only just for religious purpose but also to try their stamina. The most popular is the 800km-long Northern Trail, starting from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port and crossing Spain from east to west. However, if you don’t have time to walk it all through, don’t be upset, as the Camino de Santiago route is in fact a network of routes. So, you may choose a shorter and quieter route that is developing rapidly, and by now has perfectly viable alternatives to the traditional route.

What to expect from the St. James Way? Firstly, you’ll pass the Pyrenees Mountains along the Spanish-French border. Further, you can choose a coastal way with beautiful beaches, small towns and great scenery or step on a more historical way and pass towns with great architecture, such as Logrono, Burgos, Leon, and admire the beauty of Spanish valleys.

starting point: Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port
route length: 800 km
highlights: Augustinian monastery at Roncesvalles, Gothic cathedral at Leon, the vineyards of Rioja, valleys of Galicia, Monte de Gozo (Mountain of Joy), medieval Santiago city, Santiago de Compostela Cathedral.
finish point: the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Northwestern Spain.
