The Camino de Santiago is a pilgrimage route, which could be considered primarily an spiritual journey. The travel finishes in the city of Santiago de Compostela (Spain), place where the relics of the apostle Santiago are venerated.
This route has been considered World Heritage by UNESCO, and is currently covered by thousands of people a year.
One of the great Christian pilgrimages is to the tomb of the apostle St James. The Camino begins in Roncesvalles, on the French border, and covers 783km to the Atlantic coast. Cycling and horseback are considered appropriate forms of pilgrim transport, but most people walk the route, wandering between an extensive system of albergues, spending around one month as a modern pilgrim.
If you need to find inner peace, relax your mind, and just enjoy some spectacular scenery, friendly people and enjoy what is considered one of the best cuisines in the world, you must make this trip.
