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). Some 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 scallop shell or St James's Cross - believed to promote strength and hope.
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 travellers 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 travellers. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
Show a friend or loved-one that you care about them - and their wellbeing, and that you are thinking of them, with this meaningful charm bracelet. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
