Cross of St James necklace ~ silver, red: Encourage safe travels
. . a gift of faith to treasure for a lifetime, and encourage safety along life's Camino
This sterling-silver and red cross is the Cross of St James (Cruz de Santiago): “La Cruz de Santiago es un símbolo que favorece el coraje y la esperanza ante las dificultades”
The 1,000-year-old Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish), criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain on the Atlantic coast. At least 200,000 people travel the Camino each year from all over the world: Some people walk, others travel by bike. Many travellers choose to do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy/modern lives and perhaps finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their life in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a St James Cross like this. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
