El Camino de Santiago - The Way of St. James 

The Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago) is one of the most ancient pilgrim routes in Europe.  For more than a thousand years, pilgrims have walked across Europe to reach their final destination, the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, in north-western Spain. Tradition has it that the remains of the apostle Saint James are buried there.

The French Way - Camino Frances 

 

Four different routes originate in France and converge at Puente la Reina. From there, a well-defined route crosses northern Spain, linking Burgos, Carrión de los Condes, Sahagún, León, Astorga, and Santiago de Compostela.

Northern Route - Camino del Norte 

 

This route was first used by the pilgrims in order to avoid travelling through the territories occupied by the Muslims in the Middle Ages. The greatest attraction is its landscape, as a large part of the route runs along the coastline against a backdrop of mountains and overlooking the Cantabrian Sea.

Last 100 Km 

 This part of the Camino de Santiago goes across the final section of the French Way, from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela.

By complete this route pilgrims qualify for the Compostela, the certificate given to anybody completing at least the last 100 kilometers to Santiago.
