Día de Sant Jaume

Saint James' Day is today, and although I'm not at all religious this day does mean something to me because of it's connection to the Caminos de Santiago, and because he's the patron saint of Spain, so naturally this day is usually a holiday.


In 2010 I did my first camino (800kms): The French Way (of Saint James) with my wonderful sister in law, Jane. From then on we were hooked and have walked several other caminos since, sadly missing out the last couple of years.

According to the church/ legend, the bones of Saint James are held at the cathedral of Santiago, which is why the Caminos are seen as pilgrimages for many Christians, but the pathways go further back than that, usually ending in Finisterre (literally the end of the world).
