Top 10 Things to See on the Camino De Santiago
The Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of Saint James, is one of the most inspirational pilgrimages in Europe.
It’s comprised of several ancient routes that stretch across three countries – France, Portugal and Spain.
Many believe that the history of the Camino starts with the discovery of the remains of St. James – one of the original twelve apostles.
VIERGE D’ORISSON (VIRGIN OF ORISSON)
Just a day out from St Jean Pied de Port (right at the beginning of your trek), you face one of the most challenging walks on the pilgrimage.
ALTO DEL PERDON
The French Way continues to the lovely city of Pamplona in Spain, famous for its “Running of the Bulls” festival. (Pamplona is about 41 miles or 66 km from St Jean Pied de Port.)
THE CAVE OF FUENTEMILANOS
Belorado is one of the most notable ones. On the outskirts of this cozy village, you find one of the Camino’s hidden gems – the Cave of Fuentemilanos.
PULCHRA LEONINA (HOUSE OF LIGHT)
The French Camino passes through the Spanish city of Leon, home to a cultural treasure trove of convents, cathedrals and other historic buildings.
PUENTE DE HOSPITAL DE ÓRBIGO (BRIDGE OF HOSPITAL DE ORBIGO)
