Camino de Santiago (Editor Ray Aller)
El Camino de Santiago de Compostela, also known in English as The Way of St James, is a collection of old pilgrimage routes which cover all Europe. They all have Santiago de Compostela in North West Spain as their final destination. For more than 1000 years pilgrims have been walking along the Camino de Santiago.
The main Camino route is the Camino Frances. This part of the Camino de Santiago traditionally starts in St Jean Pied de Port and finishes in Santiago de Compostela about 780km later, after traveling the breadth of Northern Spain, (In Santiago you can collect your Compostela).
El Camino de Santiago is for everyone, young, old, fit, unfit, religious or otherwise. One of the surprising observations I had was that people I thought would drop didn't - and most of the people I saw with problems were younger people - perhaps trying to push their walking too fast. One great bit of advice I got was - slow down - a Frenchman I met kept telling me this - I listened after a while and travelled as far, but with much less pain and strain.
I did not set out on a Spiritual or religious journey - but it ended being that way -accident? I don't know... Maybe that is just El Camino de Santiago at work.
The Camino Frances is the most popular of all the Camino routes to Santiago de Compostela in North West Spain. This Camino starts in St Jean Pied de Port on the French side of the Pyrenees and finishes about 780km later in Santiago.
