Explore the Camino
Spain 18 - 27 September, 2018
We are about to embark on the Camino de Santiago.Christian pilgrims in the Middle Ages walked this spectacular path to be inspired spiritually for centuries. There are three historic Christian pilgrimage sites in the world: Rome, Jerusalem and Santiago de Compostela.Anglicans have had pilgrim centers in Jerusalem and Rome for a very long time, but up until this point, nothing has existed in Santiago. Santiago became a destination point for pilgrims because since the 12th century, the cathedral was said to house the remains of St. James. We are about to follow in the footsteps of these pilgrims.
There are many routes to Santiago de Compostela, one of the most popular being the Camino francés, the French Way, which originates in Saint Jean Pied de Port in France. During our trip, we shall be walking stretches of the French Way in Spain, starting and ending in Madrid, leading us through different landscapes and places of interest to offer a feeling of what the Camino is about, and what it means to pilgrims of the past and present.
