El Camino de Santiago

The Hike of a Lifetime

Camino Frances Map

The Camino de Santiago is said to be Spain’s oldest trail and it is dubbed as the most popular pilgrimage trek in the world. For over 1000 years human feet, animal hooves, and recently bike and motor vehicle tires have literally carved this majestic and historical Camino (main highway). It is said to have started when the remains of apostle St. James were discovered by a farmer in Galicia, Spain. Travelers from all over Europe came to see the remains, which marked the same trails which are being traversed to this date.

There are several routes you can take to reach Santiago de Compostela, such as the Camino Frances, shown on the above map. For a sample itinerary, check out Wikipedia!
