Walk El Camino Santiago
For over ten centuries pilgrims have travelled the ancient road that leads to Santago Compostella where the remains of St. James the Apostle are interred in the city’s grand cathedral. Kings, emperors, popes as well as simple peasants have travelled this path, each for their own reasons. Some sought redemption, others walked for forgiveness, enlightenment, reflection, wisdom, or insight. Whatever the reason the journey became a reminder of their earthly passage with its trials, tribulations, joys, and sorrows. The end of the journey in Santiago brought them to the earthly representation of the heavenly kingdom, the Cathedral.
In the twenty-first century the tradition continues, as people of all ages faiths and nationalities continue to walk the ancient road to Santiago Compostella. Along the way the “peregrinos” as they are called all have their own spiritual, ecological, intellectual and physical reasons for making the journey but they all share the wonder of the unique sites, scenes, people, food, and drink they encounter on the way.
