...a pilgrimage across northern Spain to the sanctuary at Santiago de Compostela, is the finest journey in Spain and one of the two or three best in the world." So wrote James Michner in his monumental book on Spain, Iberia. For a thousand years, since the bones of St. James were reputedly discovered in Santiago, common people, bishops, priests, kings, popes and saints have made this famous pilgrimage. Our tour will echo their footsteps following the first guide book ever written, by a monk in the 12th century - the Codex Calixtinus. We begin high in the Pyrenees above Pamplona and cross beautiful unspoiled northern Spain taking in the cathedral cities of León and Burgos, and countless pilgrim stops steeped in wonders and miracles along the way.
