Today tens of thousands of pilgrims set out each year from their front doorstep, or popular starting points across Europe, to make their way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Their final destination is the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela where tradition has it that the remains of the apostle Saint James are buried.
The tomb in Santiago de Compostela developed in the Middle Ages beside Rome and Jerusalem to the third principal purpose of the Christian pilgrim’s journey. The pilgrims follow many routes, the most popular route is “the French Way“ (Camino Francés) entering Spain in the Pyrenees and crossing northern Spain.
