The 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is known as the Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish). Over 200,000 pilgrims travel to the city each year from all over the world to find inspiration and/or deeper spiritual understanding. Many carry with them a St James's Cross - believed to promote strength and hope.
Description: This large sterling silver and black jet cross, handcrafted in northern Spain, measures 44mm in length including the hanging bail and 24mm wide. It comes with an 18ins sterling silver snake chain. 20ins length also available: Please choose in options box.
In Xacobeo 2010 - a Holy Year (Año Santo) in Spain because the Feast of St James (on 25th July) fell on a Sunday, over 272,000 pilgrims completed the final 100 km walk to Santiago and qualified for the 'Compostela' or certificate. The Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago through Northern Spain. It is generally regarded as a journey of the body, mind and spirit. Modern pilgrims choose to do the Camino for personal, spiritual and/or religious reasons - or simply to take time out from their busy, modern lives. For many, the walk is to find inspiration - improving their outlook on life, bringing them into closer contact with nature and expanding their cultural horizons through contact with other pilgrims. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
Gift this truly special St. James Cross to inspire your friends / loved-ones and maybe help them to be fortunate and strong in their life. Particularly suitable as a gift for a Christening / Communion, for Christmas, Easter, or Thanksgiving, or for walking the Camino itself (or as a souvenir). Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
