NORTHERN SPAIN – Barcelona and Walking the Camino de Santiago
Whether you land in Madrid, fly into Barcelona, or walk across the French or Portuguese border, make sure you leave time to do more than just walk the Camino. I flew into Barcelona, a city with something for everyone.
A visit to Guell Park is a must. From parrots to Gaudi’s house to Romas dancing flamenco, it’s magical.
And at St. Philip Neri church, there are reminders of a civil war, less than 100 years ago.
Walking the Camino de Santiago Compostela
There are seven well-established routes of St James, otherwise known as the Camino de Santiago. The Camino de Santiago Francis is about 500 miles long, starting in the Pyrenes and going to Santiago Compostela. It’s a very personal journey. The best way to do it…is your own way.
Most people walk The Camino de Santiago Francis in a month, but you can break it up into several trips. That leaves you with a reason to return, to finish the hike and hear more stories from around the world.
