Many people go on long-distance journeys▼ of deep religious meaning called pilgrimages to holy▼ places around the world. In the past, it was often the only chance people had to leave their hometown. Nowadays▼, many people also take the trip as a way to do some soul-searching or to escape from daily life and experience nature. The Camino de Santiago, or the Way of Saint James, is one of the most famous long-distance pilgrimage trails in the world and has been walked by millions of people since the Middle Ages. The Camino de Santiago is actually made up of several different roads that all end at Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, an amazing church in Spain where Saint James is said to be buried▼. The best-known path is the Camino Frances, or the French Way, which starts from the town of Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in France. Being nearly 800 km long, the walk takes around 35 days or so, depending on a person’s health. While some may choose to bike or go on horseback instead of walking, this personal journey offers plenty of chances to take in beautiful views, explore ancient towns, and spend some time alone with your thoughts.
