A Pilgrim’s Story: Walking the Camino de Santiago Stories, Impressions and Lessons

The Camino de Santiago in northern Spain is one of the most important pilgrimage routes in the Catholic Church. Over 200,000 pilgrims arrive in Santiago de Compostela annually. Pilgrims come from around the world to walk at least 100 km and often more than 800 km.
We are a diverse group ranging in age, faith, language and purpose. We may start by walking alone, but we often end up in groups, and in partners. All of us make our own discoveries, and many of us are changed by our experience.
