Saint James Way

In Galicia in the year 813, a hermit discovered the tomb of Saint James (Santiago) in the city of Compostela. Since its discovery the Apostle’s tomb has become a sacred site attracting pilgrims and non-pilgrims from all over the world. The Camino de Santiago or Road to Santiago has been declared by UNESCO of World Heritage importance, and in addition to its spiritual significance, it holds other historic values, such as having been the backbone of European cultural unity.Saint James way is the pilgrimage route that brings travellers from all over the world to Spain, and it can be a comforting experience in every sense.
