El Camino de Santiago, a 500 mile pilgrimage across Northern Spain.
Sacred walks are journeys to places of divine connection, where the veil between the physical and spiritual is thin. Such sacred spaces revitalize and energize us, and give us an experience of our inner nature. Spilling over the Pyrenees from France into Spain, the network of trails that make up El Camino de Santiago culminate at the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. For more than a thousand years, pilgrims have trekked over the high plains of Castilla and the hills of Galicia on a spiritual journey of awakening and purification while discovering some of Europe’s most fascinating religious and historic sites.
