WAY OF ST. JAMES
Walking the Way of St. James
The great merit in walking the “Way of St. James” is the camaraderie uniting people of different generations, nationalities and experiences.
Everyone on the Camino journey has a unique motivation to complete the 33 day trek on this 1000 year old pilgrimage. With its spiritual and religious connection, contrasting with the beauty and culture of this significant part of Spain it leaves an imprint on those hearts and souls who complete the journey.
“Way of St. James” is the ideal long distance walk for anyone who would like to experience for the first time the adventure of a timely journey on foot.
Its impeccable architecture and cultural monuments, makes it a fascinating passage through the history of Spain. Visitors weather returning to Spain or travelling for the first time, can gain insight into the ever changing vibrancy of Spanish life. This compliments the already familiar experiences known to the world such as flamenco, bull fighting, Paella and the alluring Spanish coast.
The path offers you some interesting encounters with nature whether in the mountain region of the Pyrenees, along the endless barren wastes of the Castilian plateau, or the green Galician right up to the unique Atlantic coast. Not to be underestimated are the meetings and exchanges with fellow hikers who all have the same goal, but quite different reasons for achieving it. And since it’s impossible to comprehend the diversity of experiences and impact of this fascinating journey, the Camino makes many pilgrims into enthusiasts who return again and again.
