The Camino de Santiago is a journey made by pilgrims who flock to Santiago de Compostela to venerate the relics of the apostle Santiago Maior.

After several centuries relatively forgotten, it is in the 1980s that the popularity of the Way has grown substantially.
The Way has become a spiritual and cultural itinerary of the first order, which is covered by tens or hundreds of thousands of people every year. It was declared First European

The Way is usually done on foot, but it can also be done by bicycle, on horseback, or even by donkey.
