The pilgrimage to Santiago has never ceased from the time of the discovery of St. James’s remains in 812 CE and today the possibilities and variations of the routes seems endless.
The main pilgrimage route to Santiago follows an earlier Roman trade route which continues to the Atlantic coast of Galicia ending at Cape Finisterre (in Latin “Finisterrae” literally the “end of the world”) and therefore known as “The Finisterre Way”. At night, the Milky Way overhead seems to point the way so the route acquired the nickname that way. Many has gathered at popular starting points across Europe to make their way to Santiago de Compostela and the combinations and variations are endless.
The French Way is another known route and one of the most popular and historically most pilgrims came from France this way typically from Arles, Le Puy, Paris and Vezelay. Cluny site of the celebrated medieval abbey was another important rallying point for pilgrims and in 2002, it was integrated into the official European pilgrimage route linking Vézelay and Le Puy.
The network of the Saint James` hiking routes seems endless and tempting known routes like the Portuguese Way, the Northern Way, the Silver Route, the Original Way, the English Way, The Sanabria Way and many many more, are just awaiting you visit. Each route again offers an endless string of variants and combinations, on foot walking or on bicycle and with options like luggage transfer, support vehicle or the hard core way walking all the way with a back pack.
