El Camino de Santiago - The Road To Santiago

The Camino de Santiago is the greatest road in Europe. It comprises Roman causeways and medieval roads, bridges and mountain passes that have witnessed the travels of saints and kings.

Our route takes us to all the most important sites between Navarra and the shrine of Saint James in Galicia as we walk the most beautiful, ancient and spectacular sections of the medieval road. In between the walks we visit all the major pilgrimage stops, including medieval hospitals, churches and artistic treasures. The trip takes ten days, during which time we will discover the art and architecture, the myths and legends of the road, the greatest cities of northern Spain, the daily life of the medieval pilgrim and the foods and wines of the different areas that we visit.

Staying in the very best accommodation, much of the time in historic and artistic buildings, we experience to the full the glory and power of the road.
