Camino De Santiago

INFORMATION

The Camino de Santiago, also known by the English names The Way of St. James, is the name of any of the pilgrimage routes to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in north-western Spain, where tradition has it that the remains of the saint are buried. Many take this challenge as a form of spiritual growth and others do it for their love of walking and the beautiful views. Within this pack, you will find the itinerary for your journey and help with fundraising ideas.
