Camino de Santiago 8 Day

 

"...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 Saint James were reputedly discovered in Santiago, common people, bishops, priests, kings, popes and saints have made this famous pilgrimage. Our bicycle tour will echo their footsteps following the first guide book ever written, by a monk in the 12th century,  the Codex Calixtinus.

Our guided journey starts at the one-time capital of Spain and one of its most beautiful cities, Leon.  From there we follow the ancient Camino Francés pilgrimage route across the beautiful unspoiled north of Spain passing countless pilgrim stops, steeped in wonders and miracles, along the way.  As we approach Santiago, the scenery changes to the verdant slendour of Galicia.

Our lodgings include luxurious monasteries, ancient pilgrim inns and small hotels. Dine in restaurants, famous for their regional cuisine and atmosphere, serving up regional specialties you simply can't find elsewhere.

 

 


 

 

 

  You have done it again. The Camino trip was most challenging at the same time very "relaxing"... You and Maggie made the evenings so much fun. CTTC really has a knack.
