What is a pilgrimage?
¿Por qué peregrinar a Santiago ?
Pilgrimage is a spiritual journey. There is a long tradition of pilgrimage in Christianity, especially prior to the Reformation in medieval Europe.
St. James, of the Bible, is said to be buried in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, making it a major site of pilgrimage for Catholics in the Edad Media.
Nowadays, the Camino can be a religious experience, a vacation, a way to process or disconnect from modern life, or exercise opportunity for those who enjoy hiking.
El camino francés es la ruta principal a Santiago.
