The Camino de Santiago is a set of routes whose final stretch crosses the green forests of Galicia until reaching Santiago de Compostela. It is one of the most popular walking trails in the whole of Europe and can be done on stretches from three days onwards.
It is named in this way because its final destination is the visit to the tomb of Santiago the Apostle in the Cathedral of Compostela and, although it is a tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages and began as a custom among the Catholic faithful, today more than 300,000 people travel along its beautiful paths in search of various objectives.
Pilgrimage to Compostela can be a tailor-made adventure, either for spiritual purposes, as a physical challenge, a retreat for personal reflection or simply to disconnect from daily routine.
The pilgrimage can be done alone, with your partner, with your family, with friends or in guided organized groups, and the tradition is to do it on foot or by bike.
Among the paths that can be completed are the Camino Frances, Camino Portugues Central Route, Camino Portugues por la Coastal Route, Camino del Norte, Camino Primitivo and the Camino de Finisterre.
