Camino de Santiago is the name of any of the pilgrimage routes, known as pilgrim ways, to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain. Pilgrims (peregrino) have walked these ways for over 1,000 years, following the simple scallop shell signs, and often with a Pilgrim’s staff.
The pathways are very popular with modern walkers – Martin Sheen starred in The Way, a movie about the camino, and the transformative effect it has on people.
