The Camino de Santiago, the Way of St. James, is an ancient pilgrimage path dating back more than a thousand years with its destination as Santiago and the shrine of the apostle St. James. This route stretches across the north of Spain and has regained popularity in recent years. More than 300,000 pilgrims complete it each year and the U.S. stands proudly as its fourth most numerous pilgrimage nation. Come walk your “Camino” with us while enjoying the beautiful scenery and getting the most out of the visits along the way with the help of our learned staff.
