What is the Camino de Santiago?

This is an ancient pilgrimage route that goes to the Galician capital (Santiago de Compostela) to visit the tomb of the Apostle Santiago in the Cathedral of the city.

This famous route began in 842 when, after the discovery of the remains of the Apostle, King Alfonso II walked from Oviedo with the goal of checking if the rumors of the discovery were true. Turning this route into what is known today as the Primitive Way.

The importance of visiting the remains of Santiago el Mayor resides in its importance to the Christian religion. He was one of the disciples of Jesus who started an evangelizing work, especially in the kingdom of Gallaecia (present-day Galicia). In addition, after his execution in Jerusalem in A.D. 44, he would become the first apostle to die for the Christian faith.

Over time, the route has been gaining more and more followers although, due to the years of Muslim conquest and reconquest of the Spanish territory, it has gone through several periods of decadence where emerged several of the new routes that exist nowadays: the North Way, the Basque Way …

Nowadays, the Camino de Santiago beats pilgrims’ records every year. People with illusion that begins the adventure of the Way with different goals. Although it all began as a religious pilgrimage to honor the Apostle James, many do the route for challenges of self-improvement, searching for themselves or adventure with friends.

Why do it?

There are several reasons that can impel you to venture to do the pilgrimage to Santiago. We, after several years working at the foot of the Way, have found several reasons that move the feet of pilgrims to every kilometer of the Jacobean route:

  • Religious: The initial motivation, the reason the Camino began was to visit the Cathedral of Santiago and pray for forgiveness of sins, to sanctify oneself for a future battle or even for miraculous cures. Nowadays, it continues being one of the most important reasons for pilgrimage.
  • Adventure: The Camino is the perfect place to get out of the monotony and discover places difficult to find. Areas where the sea meets the green of the meadows, walks with vegetation so leafy that it barely gives way to sunlight, streams or waterfalls that cause a sense of peace and calm difficult to find. You can find it all in the adventure of the Camino.
  • Social: The Way has a great variety of ethnic races and countries of origin. Many people are afraid to leave alone, but the Jacobean routes have the magic of bringing people together and generating inseparable relationships. Create a friendship on the Camino and this may be for life…
  • Improvement: Not everyone has the full capacity to face the hardness of the Way, however, there are brave people who, despite their problems, decide to embark on the Way in order to overcome themselves and achieve the goal of reaching Santiago de Compostela.
  • Cultural: The Way of St. James has a richness of historical and cultural heritage. Their routes have been pilgrimages for years and many priests or civilizations left their essence for the different peoples.

As you can see, there are several reasons and very good to not miss the adventure of the Camino de Santiago. A lot of people define it as their life experience. Would you miss it?
