The Pilgrim´s Way to Santiago is both a cultural, social and religious experience that dates back to the middle ages. This overland journey of thousands of miles to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia is undertaken by multitudes of people from all walks of life – from the most anonymous to film stars from Hollywood and bullfighters. One of its purposes is to kneel at the tomb of the Apostle Santiago or St James, but the reasons for making the pilgrimage are many. The Way to Santiago crosses ancient bridges and fields as well as towns with fascinating architecture. Those who walk it alone often speak of it as a mystic experience.
