Walking on the Camino de Santiago

Following in the footsteps of countless pilgrims since the 9th Century, we follow the legendary route Camino Frances (French Way) to Santiago de Compostela - the resting place of Saint James, where we claim our pilgrims' certificate. We walk along the most scenic sections between Leon and Santiago: across the high plains of the Castilian Meseta and into the Galician mountains. We discover Gothic cathedrals, pass through medieval villages and climb to the Iron Cross (1482m) along the way.
