The Camino de Santiago is a massive network of ancient pilgrim trails that stretch across Europe and come together in northwestern Spain. The routes converge at The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, an impressive three spired Romanesque Church that has been designated a World Heritage site. Here lies the tomb of St. James, an apostle of Jesus, who was martyred in the year 44 A.D. while spreading the Gospel. Pilgrims have walked the Camino for more than 1,200 years. Today, people from all over the world walk for religious, cultural and social reasons, as well as for sport.
