El Camino de Santiago de Compostela

At around this time last year, Neville walked the 3,109 km pilgrimage from Prague to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain - and then onto Finisterre on the Atlantic coast.

If anyone is interested in reading Neville's journey then you may feel free to do so here: (click at the bottom of the page on OLDER POSTS to view the full length of his walk.)

El Camino de Santiago (The way of Saint James) is both a popular and historic pilgrimage walk, with the destination traditionally being the north western Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela. Legend has it that here in the city of Santiago, the remains of the apostle Saint James the Great are buried. There isn’t an official starting point because pilgrims used to start their journey from their own home and today there are various pilgrimage routes within Europe which lead to Santiago de Compostela.
