About the Way of St. James

Actually, we should call it “Camino de Santiago de Compostela”. Many may think it is a route, but it is actually the name given to the set of routes that lead to the tomb of the Apostle St. James, also known as Santiago el Mayor, located in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

These are Christian pilgrimage routes of medieval origin. It is said that the first pilgrim was King Alfonso II the Chaste in the year 813, as he walked from Oviedo in order to make sure that he had really found the tomb of the Apostle St. James in a miraculous way. When he confirmed that what had happened was true, he ordered a small church to be built to bury him, a place that was rebuilt by order of King Alfonso III in 899, becoming the well-known Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

Formerly, the route that goes from the Pyrenees to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela was known as the Way of St. James. Nowadays, this route is known as the French Way of St. James, and all the existing Jacobean Routes are now called the Way of St. James.

It has undoubtedly become the best known route and with the largest number of pilgrims on the continent.
