Much more than a journey
An interest in culture, a personal challenge, contact with nature, a spiritual journey… There are as many reasons for taking the Way as there are pilgrims. Whatever the reason, it’s sure to be an unusual and different experience, worth doing at least once in your life. Thousands of people each year discover the diversity of Spain on St James’ Way. Many of them come back and do it again. The Jacobean pilgrimage route is a fascinating journey to Santiago de Compostela, with the opportunity to admire imposing heritage buildings, explore varied landscapes, enjoy delicious local cuisine, and visit cities and destinations steeped in history.
