Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago, born in the century 9th, attracts each year about 200 000 walkers and pilgrims, in search of themselves and of God. France counts 4 historical ways, departing from Puy-en-Velay, Arles, Vézelay and Tours. In Spain, several ways go to Santiago de Compostela.

Since the century 9th, Christian tradition situates in Santiago de Compostela the alleged tomb of the Apostle James the Greater, led from Palestine, with a stone-boat guided by the hand of God. Thus, since the Xth century, countless pilgrims roam the land and sea routes converging on this end of the Galician world, the borders of Europe.
