Camino de Santiago

Millions of pilgrims in recent centuries have travelled along Camino de Santiago de Compostela, one of the most important routes of Christianity apart from Rome and Jerusalem.

Today the Camino de Santiago is a World Heritage Site open to anyone who wishes to enjoy it by foot or bicycle. The spirituality and magic of the Camino remains intact. And, over the centuries, places full of history, magical legends and a first-rate artistic and cultural heritage have been forged.
