The Camino de Santiago, or “Way of St. James,” is the trail used by most European pilgrims, as described in the twelfth century by the Codex Calixtinus. In Spain, there are two main routes which cross through the Pyrenees: one which does so through the mountain pass of Somport, then leading down towards Canfranc and Jaca (the Way of Aragon), or through the neighboring valleys of Ansó (Hechó) or Tena (Sabiñánigo), and the other through the pass of Ibañeta, then heading down towards Roncesvalles and Pamplona (the Way of Navarre). Both of these main routes come together at Puente la Reina in Navarre and are known by the name of the”Camino de Santiago” used to hike west to Logroño, Burgos, Carrión de los Condes, León, Sárria and Santiago de Compostela.
The Camino de Santiago came about when the tomb of the Apostle St. James (Santiago in Spanish) was discovered in Compostela, thus becoming a fundamental pathway in the tenth century for the consolidation of the Christian kingdoms in their fight against Muslim domination.
An important spiritual trail made popular by the Codex Calixtinus in the Middle Ages, it attracted and still attracts millions of pilgrims from around the world.
Declared a World Cultural and National Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1993, and the winner of the Prince of Asturias Concord Award in 2004, it is a trail that you will never be able to forget.
