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 a St. James Cross (believed to promote faith and good fortune) to inspire your friends and help them to be strong and safe in their life. Would make a lovely Christening present, Communion or Easter gift. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
