THE PILGRIMAGE WAYS OF SAINT JAMES

One option for your personal journey might be to take a Jacobean pilgrimage route towards the final destination of Santiago de Compostela. Santiago is the capital city of Galicia and is located in the center of its autonomous community in Northwestern Spain.

Those who are interested in walking one of the St. James trails might start almost anywhere. A whole trail network exists throughout Europe, at least in countries with Roman Catholic influences in their history. The best infrastructure though is provided at the trails within Spain itself. Plenty of albergues (pilgrim hostels), grocery stores, bars, restaurants, and pharmacies are on the way. You don't even have to plan your daily stages and book accommodations ahead, just stop whenever body and feet get tired. Not only Catholic pilgrims but people with various backgrounds and different motives are very welcome to join in and continue their personal journey on the way to Santiago de Compostela.

Have a look at some impressions while clicking through the galleries. Maybe one day we will meet in Santiago or on our way there.

 

Buen camino ...
