The Camino de Santiago, otherwise known as the Way of Saint James, is an 800 kilometre pilgrimage that brings together a community of international travellers on a path crossing both large cities to small villages, mountains and streams, paved and ancient roads.

Each year thousands of people make the journey to visit the remains of Saint James, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ, who is enshrined in Santiago de Compostela.

People walk the route for many reasons. Some for religion or tradition. Some because they are retired, finished school, in between jobs, going through relationship break ups, or simply searching for the meaning of life.

Everyone is connected on the Camino. There is a spirit of togetherness. Even those who chose to begin the journey alone are never lonely - people from across the world are only a step or two away at any given time.
