I have several international friends from different countries who chose to come to Spain this year to walk some or all of the Camino de Santiago (also known as St. James Way).
The most recent one – who came here expressly for that purpose from the United States – went home not too long ago, happy with the fine fall weather she enjoyed along the route and the incredible autumn colors.
Some people choose to walk the Camino de Santiago for religious or spiritual reasons, others are on personal journeys, and others just want to get some exercise, enjoy the great outdoors and have a new experience. Whatever the motivation, all of those who finish the route in the historic city of Santiago de Compostela, have one thing in common: they get to enjoy this city’s wonderful gastronomy.
